Coffee Party USA aims to reinvigorate the public sphere, drawing from diverse backgrounds and diverse perspectives, with the goal of expanding the influence of the People in America's political arena.
It's a Democratic response to a Republican movement, but I frankly expected more creativity from the left, as opposed to imitation.
I respect any true grass roots citizen involvement....it's always refreshing to see people being activists rather than sheep. I really haven't seen it yet.....
I'm not implying that my opinion cannot change over time, but the Coffee Party movement is too new and too suspect given the reactionary implications. I have no doubt that there are good, honest citizens in the Coffee Party, who are becoming involved to make our country a better place. I have no doubt also that the Tea Party has good, liberty minded citizens who merely wish for responsible and accountable government. I'm sure that quite a few of those realize how the movement was either initiated or simply co-opted by the Republican Party, but know of nowhere else to turn.
As to the Coffee Party...I'm waiting to see if they will likewise be folded into their respective party, or if they will become an independent entity holding progressives accountable. The Tea Party hasn't done that, so I'm not holding my breath.
