The first Tea Party was in response to "taxation without representation." The modern tea parties are in response to spending without hesitation. It's hard for anyone to really get their head around how much we are actually spending. It's helpful to compare the current spending spree to past big ticket items like the New Deal, World Wars I and II, The Marshall Plan, etc.
More than World War II, more than World War I and the Iraq War combined, and four times the New Deal - and that's just the money spent since last September. No one can seriously claim that government isn't spending enough. In fact, the over $12 TRILLION bailout price tag is 14 times the total amount of money in circulation today (ErrorsOfEncnatment.com).
With this kind of spending and this kind of debt - some $42,105 per person - the question isn't why are there over 600 tax day tea parties, but why aren't there more?
