The Boston Tea Party was not only a protest against taxation without representation, it was also a rejection of tyranny. Tyranny results from not protecting our freedom. 

 

Wanna-be tyrants are easily recognizable by their support of: big government, elevating the weak, demonizing the strong, taxing the rich to gain support from the poor, abortion, gun control, nationalization of industry, making friends with other tyrants and similar little cutesies. 

 

Essentially it boils down to truth or error. Which would you choose? Truth propagates freedom. Error leads to ruin. 

 

A long time ago Saint Anthony Claret wrote these words: "Choose now what you would have chosen when it is too late."
