Today is the one year anniversary of the American Tea Party. At this time last year, Freedom loving patriots from around the United States answered the call from Rick Santelli when he suggested that it is once again time to have a Tea Party to protest Government spending and growth.
So today, as Americans again gather to celebrate the creation of one of the greatest movements for Liberty the United States has known, the Tea Party protest is going international.
Lovers of Freedom and Liberty in England are now taking up the call and having their very first modern day Tea Party today. According to an Article in the Telegraph.uk, the Freedom Association is holding a Taxed Enough Already(TEA) Party to protest "Excessive Taxation":
"The Tea Party Movement in the USA has demonstrated the huge scale of public opposition to excessive taxation. In the UK, tax is much higher and, in addition, British membership of the democratically unaccountable EU raises the issue of "no taxation without representation". From the Boston Tea Party to the Brighton Tea Party, it's time to demonstrate our opposition to excessive taxation."
The British Tea Party will be held in Brighton England at the Best Western Hotel at 5:30 p.m. They will be serving, of all things, actual Tea.
I wish our Freedom loving counterparts across the pond all the best in their efforts to curb their out of control Nanny State.
While they are at it....they may want to remind Parliament that King George III didn't listen to us either....
