    The current Tea Party is definitely financed a whole lot more than the one in the cartoon.

    You have no representative in the House of Representatives? Or no Senators from your state?

    What the early American Colonists were upset about was not paying taxes, even to the distant King of England. What they were upset about is that they had no representation in government. You on the other hand do have such representation,, And so your argument is just like very weak tea!!

    Maybe the poor are paying somewhere up 50% of their income in taxes. However, unless you provide proof to the contrary, I consider your post to be an extreme exaggeration.
    And, that the rich rich are paying the lowest percentage in taxes, yet reaping the most in benefits of the American government.

    “Yep, the original TEA party were outraged at taxes.”

    No, they were outraged at taxation without representation.

    “The fat-lazy-taxers just couldn’t raise taxes fast enough for the welfare queens.”

    I agree! In 2002, the libertarian Cato Institute estimated that corporations received $92 Billion in from the government, not including tax loopholes, no-bid contracts, “accidental” billing overcharges and outright fraud. The government would save a bundle by kicking corporate welfare queens off the dole. Glad to see you’re advocating true fiscal conservatism!

    The bill of rights was the extreme and still is the extreme of liberalism….look at the rest of the world (except for you, maybe you should just gnaw off your left hand and foot just in case they don’t betray you while you sleep)

    Um, no, Radish, you got that wrong. The GOP acted much like today’s GOP in the thirties — when FDR gave in to demands for austerity measures, the depression got worse again instead of improving as it had been, until he went back to what worked.
    The GOP was pro-working man up until about WWI. Teddy Roosevelt was too liberal for today’s Democratic party!

    Speaking on behalf of my fellow Bostonian and those who actually know some history: @rightisright, @Mr. Ima: READ SOME! Boy, are you guys completely, bizarrely wrong.

    The original “Tea Party”, and Declaration of Independence were about being ruled by a “foreign” power using dictatorial powers, and NOT listening to the colonists pleas, and in many cases, self-interest protests. The “founders” were wealthy men, out indeed, for the majority, protecting their own self interests, which included keeping slaves and indentured servants, and paying as little in taxes, to ANYONE, as possible. Others of the founders, like Ben Franklin, with that silly post office, post roads, public libraries, volunteer fire departments, and other silly stuff to promote “the general welfare”, would be branded by today’s “TEA party” folks, as a raging communist.

    What amazes me, and others here, about the most staunch “right wingers” on these posts is their total ignorance of the actual documents they claim supports their views, or actual history; not cited by Limbaugh, Coulter, O’Reilly, and others more dedicated to ideology, than fact.

    And yet you sit here and trout all this garbage (not the facts trout, your opinion of what others think) .

    Yep, our founders were mad at the arrogance of the “ruling” class – not a foreign power silly but the King of which the colonies were subjects – the heavy taxes on goods and the interference in the business of the colonies. So what exactly is different from the founders (wealthy business people, looking out for their business interests) and today’s business leaders? Nothing. And what is the difference between King G and his demands and the liberal WH today? Nothing.

    And there is not one – NOT ONE – conservative that has a problem paying the taxes necessary to fund any of the programs you reel off. Other than the post office, the majority of that is funded at the state and local level with some assistance from the fed.

    You may want to rethink that comment about “total ignorance” of the founding documents that “right wingers” have. Or actual history. Many of us have lived through and seen the way it has been “altered” to fit the narrative.

    But to the winner go the spoils. And telling the “story” is “his” to do. (his-tory)

    Nonsense, Bruce. The Tea Party doesn’t want ANY taxes. Or haven’t you listened to Grover Norquist, who wants to be able to drown the government in a bathtub?
