""Liberty and freedom are precious and must be fought for and many generations of Americans have answered the call and heard the toll of the Liberty Bell. Now is such a time and ask not for "whom does the bell toll". For those on the greens at Lexington and Concord heard the call and saw the approaching danger in the forms of "Brown Bess" and "Redcoat". And when the smoke had cleared the deaf ear of the oppressor was pierced by "the shot heard round the world".""

TEA PARTY-BACKED FOUNDER OUT OF MAINSTREAM

THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND THE EARLY AMERICAN PATRIOTS WAS THEIR UTTER DISGUST AT HAVING TO PAY TAXES AND NOT HAVE REPRESENTATION IN THE ENGLISH GOVERNMENT.  THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND TE MODERN DAY TEA PARTY IS TAXES AGAIN.  THE NAME IMPLIES THAT TaxedEnoughAlready.  OF COURSE MEMBERS OF THE WASHINGTON ESTABLISHMENT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ISLE CANNOT TOLERATE THIS UPSTART GROUP, BECAUSE THEY SEE IT AS A THREAT TO THEIR CONTROL OF WASHINGTON.  SOMETHING THEY WILL FIGHT TO THE BITTER END TO MAINTAIN.  TAXES ARE THE LIFE BLOOD OF POLITICAL POWER AND ANY GROUP LEFT OR RIGHT THAT SEEKS TO GREATLY  REDUCE THEM THEY SEE AS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER.  CARTOON BY HENRY PAYNE
