The Tea Party Revisited

I just want to go back about 75 posts to the Boston Tea Party.

The Boston Tea Party took place because England had levied unfair, burdensome taxes on the American colonies.

Early Americans didn't want to pay taxes to a government in which they had no say.  The money was going to go to England and the king was going to use the tax money however he wanted.

Our ancestors said, "No way!"  And, of course, dumped the tea into Boston Harbor, a harbinger to the Starbuck's empire that was to come.

Ok, fast forward to today.

The Tea Party was formed in 2009-2010 as a direct result of Obamacare.  Obamacare, as we all now know, (and conservatives have known all along) is an unfair tax that is a burden to tax-paying Americans.  Thinking people said, "No way!"

And, the Tea Party was formed.

I am getting kinda sick of the list of names that Tea Party members have been called.  So, I won't list them again.  They don't make any sense and I have posted them several times.  The point is, Tea Party members have been called loads of icky names.

But, Tea Party members aren't any of those icky things.  They are limited government loving, low tax supporting, tea tossing patriots.

Is there going to be a formal apology from anyone?

I guess I will just wait for that, too.
