Thomas Jefferson: Tea Partier

Our federal government has gotten out of control, seeking to violate individual rights to a massively intolerable degree. As such, the tea party movement -- the largest grassroots pro-liberty uprising of our lifetimes -- has surged forward to battle those politicians (and their enablers) who detest liberty. The tea partiers scored a resounding victory with the recent defeat of an anti-liberty Massachusetts Democrat who sought to win election to the U.S. Senate. This reminds me of words from founder Thomas Jefferson: "Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government... whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights." No doubt that were he alive today, Jefferson would be at the forefront of the tea party movement. Congratulations to all tea partiers -- past and present! Let us now not rest on our laurels, but instead grasp the momentum we have to further promote the cause of liberty.
