The Tea Party


Constitution of the United States of America

I’m interested to know, what would “Pluribus”  and “Cato” think of all of this chatter?

Are the folks who attach themselves to the Tea Party as Constitutionalists running on a Federalist or Republican platform based upon the true intent of the framers?

Do we have such an amazing fascination with the framers that we forget that there was intense debate amongst those men as well? 

I’m currently in the middle of The Federalist Papers to remind me of one half of the political philosophy of the time.  I recommend each of us take the time to refresh ourselves with American history….
