Remember when radicals would tar, feather, and pour boiling hot tea down tax collectors’ throats?
Or commit civil disobedience on a massive scale by throwing thousands of pounds of tea (worth about a million dollars today) into Boston Harbor because of a couple of cents worth of taxes…
These are the radicals conservatives cite today who allegedly inform their political opinions. These are the guys who warned us against a standing army and shot British soldiers rather than surrender their arms.
Yet today conservatives are more likely to support the police than to see them as the standing army the Founders warned against.
