America's new party counts down to liftoff

The Boston Tea Party has passed the 200 member mark and I expect (read: hope) that it will be much larger* by the time of its first "event" --

Have you joined yet?

A few things to remember:

- There's no requirement that the Boston Tea Party be your exclusive affiliation -- or at least, no such requirement from our end. Other parties may have rules applying to their officials and/or members.

- There are no dues.

- As a matter of fact, joining is as easy as entering your email address and certifying that you endorse the Party's platform: "The Boston Tea Party supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope and power of government at any level, for any purpose."

- Oh, yeah ... you can do that here.

- Want to help spread the word? The Boston Tea Party does not raise or spend money as an organization, but feel free to advertise it yourself.

Back soon with more traditional bloggage.

* According to Wikipedia, the Libertarian Party counted "more than 80 members" as of its first presidential election, 11 months after its founding. Former LP chair and executive director Steve Dasbach disputes that claim. He says that the "more than 80" number refers to attendees at the LP's first convention, and that actual party membership in the first year was in excess of 300. We're a little over a month old and catching up to the LP's first-year figures quickly. Of course, we have the Internet and they didn't. I'm still hoping for 500 by August 19th.
