Tea Party Spreads to Other Countries - Are the People Getting Fed Up with Powerlusting Politicians?

"May it be to the world, what I believe it will be—to some parts sooner, to others later, but finally to all—the signal of arousing men to burst the chains under which monkish ignorance and superstition had persuaded them to bind themselves, and to assume the blessings and security of self-government."Thomas Jefferson

Even the Aussies are getting into the limited government mode. Here is an article in AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL AFFAIRS. Is the desire for freedom FROM government spreading around the globe? Will it last? Time will tell.


..."What should be the role of the government in the economy, what should be the role of government in people’s lives and do you believe that you can spend your money better than government?"

The T.E.A. Party in Australia announces on its website that it is a "worldwide movement united for free markets, fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited small governments and individual freedom".

The modern US Tea Party movement draws inspiration from the Boston Tea Party of 1773, which was a protest by American colonists against British taxes and emerged in the United States in 2009. READ HERE.
