Boston Tea Party

Dec. 16, 1772
Colonialists attack, tar and feather a hapless tax collector. The colonies refused to pay the levies required by the Townsend Acts claiming they had no obligation to pay taxes imposed by a Parliament in which they had no representation.

Jan. 19, 2010
Rep. Scott Brown wins Senate seat in Mass.
A shocking outcome after more than 40 years of Dem. Ted Kennedy reining and ruling and even with a Health Care Bill pending named in his honor.
The truth lies in Scott Brown's theme "It's the people's seat".

Some have forgotten that Democracy is of the people and for the people
Thank you Mass. for a 2010 Boston Tea Party!
