Are you seriously suggesting a political party called the Extropian Party? I assure you that if The Extropy Institute ever sponsored a political party or
allowed the term Extropian to be used as the name for a political party I would
drop my membership in the Extropy Institute immediately and I am very confident that I would not be the only one.

I would expect to see a beer chugging team sponsored by the Temperance Union at about the same time as I would expect to see a political party sponsored by the Extropy Institute.
