For the first question on this post: (Q:) Can anyone tell me/us what the first Tea Party was about..The Boston Tea Party? (A:) Taxation without representation. Okay then: What if I were to tell you that if we pay the first cent in taxation without the proper repersentation the United States Supreme Court has held that it is the very definition of peonage, or involuntary servitude? Okay now lets go one step further: The same Court has also held that if a person is served a tax for their labor the same peonage and/or involuntary servitude is in effect. Too, the Court has held that a persons labor is their private property and a tax cannot be imposed upon it. But of course we all know this, right? So when we go to work and sell our labor for an agreed upon price there cannot be any form of taxation on this because if it were it would be taxation without representation and a form of involuntary servitude, or in other words, slave labor. But what about the income tax? Well, its fairly simple, the money a person receives for the sell, or trade, of their labor (their private property) is NOT income. AND, if the united states government, or any part of it, levies a tax of any kind on the money you receive from your labor it is taxation without representation because the United States Constitution plainly states that a persons labor is their own private property and a tax cannot be levied on private property unless its done properly and within the bounds of the Constitution. AND, dear patriots, no matter what some bureaucrat or I.R.S. agent might tell you, the 16th Amendment does not give the government the authority to tax the money you receive from an everyday job, unless of course you work for the government. But a plumber, carpenter, bookkeeper, farmer, doctor, or shoe salesman (or any of the like kind) cannot be taxed for thier labor and if they are this is TAXATION WITHOUT REPERSENTATION. So heads up Tea Party, where is Washington getting the money to pay $165,000 each year to our so-called congressmen? These do nothing men and women are stealing your hard earned money right out of your pockets and laughing all the way to the bank, and they are doing this without you even raising the proverbial eyebrow! TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION was the first Tea Party's cry, let it be the same NOW!!! Wake up Patriots, you have the will and the power to stop Washington. Its your money, use it NOW.
