Crack Party for next election

This is a parody idea, tongue in cheek, I'm making fun of our illustrious leaders. If you don't understand that and can't emotionally handle it, please do not post in this thread, to do so is only showing that you are a fool or are intent on obstructing free speech.

Perhaps it is time to organize the Crack Party as an alternative to Republicans, Democrats, or the Tea Party.

Since our Congress has shown itself to be ineffective at the very least whether due to incompetence or immorality it is time for some changes. Since our leaders conduct business like a bunch of drunken pirates, one possibility would be to get the crackheads off of the street and send them to Washington to run Congress for a while. It would clean up some street crime and replace one batch of destructive criminals with another. It might give the crackheads a little self-esteem and help rehabilitate them. It might do the same with our leaders who are destructively addicted to power and spending. Vote for the Crack Party Candidate in the upcoming elections.

Thanks for the sentiment, but no, I am not qualified to run on the ticket.

I find your post to be in extreme bad taste! There are two organizations forming right now to stop this action. One, responding to your maligning pirates and equating them with government officials, Pirates Undermining Key Executives (P.U.K.E) and the second, Government Against Social Practices (G.A.S.P.) is forming due to the fact your idea will reduce the amount of "street people" seeking programs there-by forcing them to cut their staffs and possibly having to go out and get a real job. Wouldn't help the unemployment rate at all, no-sirree Bob!

Two problems with your thought. I foresee problems with the voting process. Would we have to change the ballots to a "scratch-off" style?

Also, who would want a pot smoking, cocaine snorting, draft dodging, drunkard leading the country? Oh, wait...

what does the crack party think about gun control ?
Abortion ?
Teaching creation in schools ?
Securing the US borders ?

Problem with the idea is that the crack heads would soon discover that spending other people's money is more addictive than crack and would drop the old addiction for the new one.

I would think the "Crack Party" would be against abortion because a baby is one more thing you can sell to buy more Crack.
They would be for gun control because of self-preservation. The Korean store owners would have nothing to wave around and threaten them with.

Oh, I thought this was a party for the vast majority of middle class Americans who feel like we've fallen through the cracks . . .

Their logo would appear to be a bunch of grapes.....but would actually be dingle-berries.

And likely be to only politicians that believe the Truth in Advertizing laws should apply to politicians just as much as they do to used car dealers.....

Yeah, at least "Joe the Plumber" knows that leaky pipes don't get any better just by having the plumber talk about them being better or studying them or forming comities to study them, etc. . . .

once we have a crack senate and a crack house it will be streamlined and low cost so that it can be moved at a moments notice, any old abandoned house or warehouse would do, as long as there was a place to sleep, having in house bunks might even cut out the long commutes and vacation home travel

At this point I'd vote for anyone, pretty sure I voted for a communist last go around, and a couple independents, and probably a green party or socialist thrown in their. I pretty much just go down the list and whoever doesn't have a R or D next to them gets it, heck they could be national socialist for all I care.

Anything is better than what we have.
