The Tea Party started before 2009. Ron Paul

inspired the "Tea Party" under the Bush administration. It was a response to the illegal wars, growth of government, Patriot Act, etc. This Tea Party was destroyed by the NeoConservatives and many Paul supporters left.

Ron Paul on Occupy Wall Street:
“But I think that the majority of them think government is the problem and taxes are too high and they know that the Federal Reserve plays a role in this, which, of course, is something I agree with.”
