With a hat tip to Darryl Perry:
“I’ll take ‘Mad Tea Party‘ for $2000, Alex!”
The Boston Tea Party was a $2000 clue on the April 19, 2011 episode of “Jeopardy!”
The clue was this:
“Ironically, the Boston Tea Party (“time to party like it’s 1773!”) opposes this Oct. 2001 anti-terrorist law…”
Of course, Libertarians know that would be the PATRIOT Act.
The Boston Tea Party was founded in 2006 with a one sentence platform: “The Boston Tea Party supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope and power of government at any level, for any purpose.”
In October 2008, the party’s National Convention adopted the four point program of the Campaign for Liberty. Their program calls for an end to overseas occupation, a restoration of privacy and other liberties, no increase in the national debt, and a thorough review of the Federal Reserve. During the 2010 convention the Party adopted a new program to End the Wars of Aggression, End the Fed, End the War on Drugs, End the Abuses of Liberty, End the Immigration Fiasco.
