You do realize that the guys throwing tea off the boats were liberals, right?
You mean the Classic Liberals back in the 1700's?
WTF are you talking about?
The title " Tea Party " is suppose to be a joke..
hell no if it was up to those wimps , we would be still singing "God Bless The Queen"
Yeah classical liberalism didn't come about until the 19th century. Libertarians use the term, wrongly I might add, to describe government that does not provide social services or regulate banking. This is also called laissez-faire liberalism.
Our founding fathers were liberals in the purest sense of the word. A philosophy that came out the Age of Enlightenment. A guy named John Locke laid the foundations for this philosophy. The guy that Jefferson plagiarized. The problem is that we don't have liberals today. We have leftists.
BIG difference between classical liberalism and modern liberalism. They are polar opposites. Any left wing moron who says BUT BUT...JEFFERSON WAS A LIBERAL! is just beyond words stupid.
I Agree.. Not only Leftists, but Progressives.
Careful, Teddy Roosevelt was a progressive. Progressive isn't a dirty word either. The left can call themselves whatever they want, but in the end they are still leftists, just a hair shy of socialism.
