The Tea Party Movement is a protest movement in the US which resulted from the US Government’s Stimulus Package. The movement desires to stop the increased national debt.
The Tea Party Movement also resulted in the Tea Party Protests in 2009. The protests were against Taxation Without Representation – similar to the Boston Tea Party and the Whiskey Rebellion (protests against taxing whiskey to pay off the national debt in 1794).
Primary Goal: To stop government spending which was increased to get the US out of a recession. Includes stopping government bailouts which are at the expense of the American taxpayers.
Many had hoped Joe Stack was a supporter of the Tea Party Movement. He had NO connection with this movement, but many media outlets attempt to link the two, to show that the Tea Party Movement is ‘dangerous‘. The only ‘danger‘ is the American public having a strong desire for self-protection from an out of control government.
