    I have been doing some research on the so called grassroots group The Coffee Party. After reading there mission statements and listening to there founder Annabel Park who worked as a volunteer for Obama's campaignI. I kept hearing the same statement over and over. I kept hearing the word collective over and over. Listening to Miss. Park and reading there mission statement I can find nothing on individual freedom or property rights.
    Now maybe I am reading to much into it but when I see collective I think of two things The Borg and Karl Marx now I don't think there aliens so I am going to lean on the side that they follow Marx.
    Also if you look at there website they use Media Matters and American Progress. org for there news information. Lets face a fact these two organization went to the school of Marx and are funded by George Soros.

    .

    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.

    Follow the money to see why congress isn't working. John Boehner states that he is doing everything he can to stop the healthcare reform legislation. Look at the industries contributing to his campaign and it makes perfect sense. Insurance, pharmaceutical/healthcare industries are in the top 5 industries contributing (bribing) to the Congressmans campaign financing. The American people are not a consideration. Our Right Wing supreme court says bring it on. Fascism is defined as exercising a dictatorship by the merging of state and business leadership together with an ideology of belligerent
    nationalism.Sounds like Dick Cheney and Karl Rove's mantra. The American people voted for Obama with hopes that someone would finally represent them and healthcare reform he promised. The American people need to ignore the ridiculous Republican accusations about death panels etc and demand that healthcare reform be enacted with due haste.

    I am happy to see there are many people in the U.S. with more veiws closer to myself. I know the Tea-Baggers were not for me. Dick Army and Freedoom Works made a fool out of them ,so did sister Sarah at $100,000 a pop. I love all the constitutional experts.
    I hope you can keep congress informed and aware not everybody shares the veiws of a guy from SC that dresses like Ben Franklin , thinks health care is socialism ,while they are collecting their medicare.
    It is clear you will not have FOX NEWS to push the agenda like they do for the tea baggers and the insurance and bank lobby.
