Third Party Spotlight: Boston Tea Party

The platform of the Boston Tea Party is very simple:
"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."

According to their website they support:

Ending Wars of Aggression -- withdraw forced from Iraq, Afghanistan, South Korea, Germany, Japan, and all other occupied nations.

Yeah, I can agree with that.

Ending the Fed - audit the Federal Reserve, repeal the income tax, abolish the IRS and refuse bailouts of any industry.

I agree with this too.

Ending the War on Drugs - repeal all laws against the use and trade of controlled substances.


Ending the Abuses of Liberty - repeal the Patriot Act. restore privacy by forbidding warrant-less wiretapping. restore habeous corpus.

Unsure about this one. Agree up to a point.

Ending the Immigration Fiasco - open the borders to trade and travel. loosen restrictions on citizens and visitors. Abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Border Patrol agencies.

Okay, they lost me on that one. I sent an e-mail to their Chairman today asking for some explanation on this one.
