    I definitely like the "PerlUnited" idea.

    Well, the poll was about places (where people go or gather to... well, do something!) while politics is an abstract concept and government is not necessarily so abstract, but far from being an actual place, unless you take into account the palaces of politics. Either way, I don't like your suggestion, since it stresses the idea of an institutional Perl whereas Perl, notwithstanding $Larry and @Larry -nay, thanks to them!- is much a community thing, written and mainteined by the community for the community. Real people, for the most part, gather in a pub, in a cinema, in a factory... sometimes in an asylum... not in a government house! Also the hinted idea of a Perl party sounds much like "closed mind" to me: I am a Perl supporter all the way, and I have a bad opinion of e.g. Python... but even as a metaphor I couldn't stand the image of a Perl party against a Python party.

    Plus:

    Fools run the government
    Sick forein policy
    Their words sound valiant
    But their hands are green
    Unending quest for power
    Taxes that make us slaves
    Don't believe a word of it
    Ignore the f**ked up things they say
    Cause I'm gonna make it on my own
    Dictator on a throne
    Make my own philosophy
    US OF ME
    A citizen who's really pissed
    United Anarchists
    Give me death or liberty
    I AM MY OWN COUNTRY
    UNITED STATES CONFEDERATE OF ME
