Members of the Tea Party movement, known by some as Tea Baggers, are protestors of the “liberal agenda;” basically any new laws and legislation that they believe go against their welfare and the welfare of the country. They got the name of their group from, obvious to most Americans, the protestors of taxation without representation – the Boston Tea Party. Both have their similarities. Comparatively, they are both political extremists. However, the activists at the Boston Tea Party, assumedly, did not put people’s lives in danger. The Tea Baggers were known to cut people’s brake lines when the health care bill was passed, not to mention, as the picture shows, debatable abuse of the first amendment to the point of slander.
