Tea Party Etc. cubit

Victory in the French and Indian War was costly for the British. At the war's conclusion in 1763, King George III and his government looked to taxing the American colonies as a way of recouping their war costs. They were also looking for ways to reestablish control over the colonial governments that had become increasingly independent while the Crown was distracted by the war. Royal ineptitude compounded the problem. A series of actions including the Stamp Act (1765), the Townsend Acts (1767) and the Boston Massacre (1770) agitated the colonists, straining relations with the mother country. But it was the Crown's attempt to tax tea that spurred the colonists to action and laid the groundwork for the American Revolution.

It also resulted in the fabled Boston Tea Party. Today many Americans feel that the Federal Government has lost touch with the citizens in much the same way the "Crown" was out of touch with it's subjects in the colonies. The largely unpopular "healthcare" bill is the latest example of the Federal government acting much like the 18th century British Crown. A vast grass roots movement known as the "Tea Party Movement" has resulted. With no real national leadership, it's ability to function as independent groups is truly amazing. This cubit will try to capture the pulse of the 'Tea Party', report on it's activities and share opinions consistent with that philosophy.

Image Co-opting and watering down the Tea Party Movement
By Rand Lowe on February 20, 2011

It was inevitable. The move by the 'Old Guard' of the Republican Party to co-opt and water-down the Tea Party is underway. It's being led by so-called conservatives, neo-cons like Sean Hannity, Charles Krauthammer, and even Sarah Palin.

Image A Poor Man's Guide to Budget Cuts
By Rand Lowe on December 5, 2010

Most people understand that cutting spending in Washington is the only way to solve the debt crisis. However, when asked for specifics, it becomes quite another answer. Are we that selfish that we're willing to cut so long as it doesn't personally affect us?
