The Boston Tea Party was a protest staged in 1773 against the British Government. The colonists were protesting taxation without representation.
In 2008 elections in the United States, the voter demographics more closely represented the demographics of the United States citizenship than any election in US history.
Today large groups of people across the country are staging “tea party” (remember taxation without representation) protests against a government that is more representative of the population than any in this country’s history.
Adding spice to the irony – the term “teabagging” that the protesters are using to describe their own actions is a euphemism for a sexual act.
