MISSION: The Coffee Party Movement gives voice to Americans who want to see cooperation in government. We recognize that the federal government is not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges that we face as Americans. As voters and grassroots volunteers, we will support leaders who work toward positive solutions, and hold accountable those who obstruct them.

"..The difference between the Coffee Party and the Tea Party appears to be the simply that they bare no political affiliation and as Annabel Park has put it, "A key difference is in our emphasis on the democratic process, on respectful and civil engagement with one another and with our elected officials.."


"..The Coffee Party appears to be placing a major focus on corporatism in America and the influence.."

All I can say is they are not alone, I support their frame of thought and hope many others will do the same!

Some other interesting viewpoints on this group.

They should be the polar opposite of teabaggers: working class, tolerant, intelligent and not hypocritical

I'd say it depends on what the members would 'agree' to compromise on whether they actually are worth while or not...Just my 2 pennies.
