Michael, remember the REAL Boston Tea Party? Your picture

shows a cheering crowd giving its mandate from the shore in broad daylight. In reality, the British Colonists, while suffering more, were hesitant of making the first move, going along with worse and worse treatment. SOME were planning. They didn't WANT people to pay the tax on the tea, but there were sure to be some who would be willing to do so. So by night, a few went to dump the tea overboard. Many knew, there is no indication anyone opposed it, but while public opinion was starting to turn people still needed a rallying point to commit.

In some ways that is how I see the liberty movement, and (for me) Ron's role. He gave focus to this, and consistently stood for the message, and does. People need someone with a mic saying these things to point to and say 'listen to him!' Or people need some event that brings them to realization of growing encroachment.

I think Boston, to a lot of people, fit that last category, and that is why what Ron said about Boston is getting so much play, and is being savaged so much.

Maybe what happened in Boston will help people to take a stand, again.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul
