Question: Why Bull Moose?
Answer: The Bull Moose Movement is channeling the spirit of the 1912 Bull Moose Party. Formed 100 years ago, the Bull Moose Party, headed by Teddy Roosevelt, ran the strongest third party candidacy in history on a pro-reform, pro-worker, anti-corporate platform.
Question: Is the Bull Moose Movement a third party or a wing of an existing party?
Answer: The Bull Moose Movement is NOT a political party, nor does it intend to be. Our focus is empowering communities through civic education, not getting sucked into the perpetual campaign.

Question: Do you support Barack Obama?
Answer: You mean that socialist, communist, fascist terrorist trying to destroy American values?
Just kidding! We like President Obama just fine, but we will oppose the Obama administration when its policies are dictated by corporate interests, which is, unfortunately, quite often the case.
Question: Hey…isn’t the Coffee Party sort of doing this?
Answer: Maybe! It’s unclear exactly what the Coffee Party is up to. If they support community empowerment through civic education, we will work hand in hand with them. If they focus on electing candidates, we won’t. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
