February 20, 1989, homeschoolers flooded the offices of North Dakota legislators with hundreds of tea bags with the attached message: "The consent of the governed for home schooling, too!" The "Bismarck Tea Party" expressed homeschoolers' frustration with years of unfair treatment. Zan Tyler, Homeschool Court ReportLook at that date, 1989! Long before anyone had heard of Sarah Palin or Barack Obama. I know it wasn't the first 'Tea Party', but hey, I do think it's kinda cool that it was homeschoolers who thought of using it first as a modern expression of the unfairness of gov't overregulation! Cool.

British Tea Party Movement to launch on Saturday
British Member of Parliament Daniel Hannan is launching a tea party movement in Great Britain this weekend. To people perplexed that about launching a movement that is based on American protests against Great Britain in 1773, Hannan responds:
Some British Lefties – and some Americans – are thrown by the idea of a Brighton Tea Party. After all, they point out, the original Boston Tea Party was directed against the British Crown.
Yes, it was. But where do you think its leaders drew their inspiration from? The American patriots didn’t see themselves as revolutionaries, but as conservatives. In their own minds, all they were asking for was what they had always assumed to be their birthright as freeborn Englishman.Part of that birthright was liberty from unjust, arbitrary or punitive taxation. The proposition that taxes ought not to be levied except by elected representatives would have been every bit as popular in Great Britain in 1773 as in America.
