32,487

That is how many voters in Greece voted for the Greek Pirate Party, according to a report from Rick Falkvinge:

The Greek Pirate Party, Κόμμα Πειρατών Ελλάδας, was founded on January 14 this year. To get 32,487 votes less than four months later – just over half a percent of the Greek votes – is nothing short of phenomenal. Even breaking through to mainstream awareness in four months is phenomenal.

This is a good start:

It should be noted that the distance between nothing and 0.5 per cent is much larger than the distance between 0.5 and 5 — once you start hitting 2-3 per cent, you get your own bar in the polls, and become “electable”. You have a shot at parliament, so you’re not a wasted vote anymore.

It only takes 3% to get into the Greek parliament!  There will be a new election June 17.  A liberty party is what Greece needs, not the leftwing Syriza party, or the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn or Stalinist Communists!  The fact is that the Greeks have rejected the pro-EU Tweedledee and Tweedledum parties.

I like the style of the Greek Pirates – they posted a letter thanking the voters at their website!  They also have a FB page!  Let’s hope the Greek Pirates get that 3% this time!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
