    I just found this out. Apparently they believe Piracy should be legal and that pirates should not be call "pirates". The political party is called the US Pirate Party. They have not won any major elections however the party has over 30,000 members according to Wikipedia

    Why wouldn't they want to be called pirates? Pirates are badass.

    Well, I should rephrase. I meant that they want to change the meaning of "pirates" not as criminals, but as normal citizens. I'm voting for them in the next senate election!

    I'm genuinely at a lack of words. I'm cracking up about the weird hypocrisy, "We don't believe we should be called pirates. We're the pirate party."

    So what is it? Are you only allowed to call yourself and cohorts pirates, while those who are not are not allowed to use that word? lol

    Yeah, some things they say are sorta strange. For example, they say why are we called pirates, when they are called the Pirate Party

    Unless/until we implement ranked choice voting, anything but a vote for one of the two major parties is basically a throwaway.

    What is wrong with proportional voting like we have in Germany and Austria? it would be the most fair system.

    They should fix that part first, if they want anyone to take them serious.
