The Original Tea Party

The original Tea Party was in the 1700's, of course. After that, in the 1990's, I used to attend tea party events every April 15th, often sponsored by my local Libertarian Party. We'd meet at the post office and hand out anti- Fed, IRS, and tax materials to people rushing to mail their returns.

Electronic filing brought an end to those, but it was certainly the nucleus for the Ron Paul tea party events (many of the same participants--wearing their same costumes!).

What do you think?
