Pirate Party of the United States

I have always been a fan of third parties ... here is one which is one day old, the
Pirate Party of the United States
. It takes its lead from Sweden's Piratpartiet and has a clear "information wants to be free" agenda. Copyright and patents must have their uses, but clearly, they are being exploited for private gain and not the public good. I believe a good open debate on what is property and what property deserves the state's monopoly of force to defend is warranted.

I would imagine if they thought about it, The Pirate Party would be for "free roads" too, though.
