You don't even have to register to be in the Awesome Party. We're so awesome, we just know when you decide to do so and we make it happen. Awesome Party members can vote for whoever they want - even if they're not on the ballot. We firmly believe that from now on, only awesome people can be politicians. We're awfully tired of dorky ones.

Other Awesome Party platforms:

1) xBox Live will allow you to download copies of games that you've purchased on disc to your hard drive so if your dog chews up your only copy of the Orange Box, you can still play Portal without shelling out another $50. That would be HELLA awesome.

2) Nobody has to die any more in the military. Our military would be so awesome, people would be all like, "Awesome. We can't shoot you." And then it would be our brave soldiers' jobs to do beer runs for the big party theater on the Eastern Front.

3) State-issued identification cards will have optional holograms of either unicorns or white tigers on them. If you decide to be in the Awesome Party now while we're still a grass roots movement - you'd get to have POP UP IDs that have like a little folded version of you waving. We'd let you pick the photo they use, too... so it could be that one where you were 14 and you ollied off that park bench and totally stuck the landing.

4) You could vote for stuff by either high-fiving the person that had the good idea or pressing a big red buzzer that makes everyone laugh... but also makes them think.

5) We would make congress more like the one they have in England where everyone wears funny wigs and yells at each other and it's okay to throw dinner rolls at each other. The new US congress would be broadcast on HBO (or maybe BBC America because it was kind of their idea) and each session would have titles like: "Congress In Session part 5 - the day the senator from Iowa totally schooled that new guy from Kentucky about the difference between the new BSG and the old one."

6) We are totally for kittens. They are totally going to stay in the Constitution.

7) Instead of building a wall around our border, we'd make it a dual-track roller coaster and there will be really efficient, fast-moving lines with Speedpass booths on both sides so everyone could ride it without waiting more than like... 15 minutes. The Immigrants can race the Citizens and if the Immigrants win, they can get off on the US side. (But really, it'll always be a tie because it's sorta mechanical - so we'll have to see how well they high-five or something.)

8) We would push to add poker to the Olympics. We don't believe it's a sport, but everyone enjoys it... especially in international waters. And isn't that what the Olympics should really be about? having a good time and proving that your people are better than everyone else at something like poker?

9) REALLY good jokes from late night talk shows would make up a majority of the State Of The Union Address.

10) Read our lips: No new Texans. (Just kidding, we're just pimping our Threadless slogan that we entered.)

Vote Awesome... or just BE awesome. Either way, it's a vote for change.

#10 is not a real party line. We include quirky zingers in our platform to keep the press on their toes.

While I am sure you are already aware of my awesomness and have noted my name in the awesome party registry, I thought I would tell the awesomless masses that I like your t-shirt design and have thus voted for it.

We haven't been Gnarly - but we did form a really awesome bipartisan commission on state-funded snowbard parks... that was totally Gnarly.

I'm happy to see this one getting some love too! It's really well done. Already GMV, so can't give you anymore boost right now, except for a word or two about how much I like it! Nice job Gargrazz!

Things would be so awesome because of Awesome Party politics, that you'll be all like, "Dude, keep it and feed hungry polar bears or something. We're totally awesome right now."

And then we'd be all like, "Cool. That's awesome. We had this thing we wanted to do where we have free coffee vendors on every other corner, so nobody ever gets tired again."

Wow. I want a coffee vendor to sit next to me all day and just keep handing me fresh cups of coffee. If you can swing that, I will adopt a hungry polar bear just so the Awesome Party will have one less polar bear to support.

This shirt is pretty awesomesauce, as we would say in the gaming world (as opposed to being weaksauce). I'd definitely join this party and wear this shirt in support.
