Philadelphia Tea Party

Here‘s a link to pictures of the Philadelphia Tea Party protest. There seems to have been a lot on confusion on the part of the organizers and not many people showed up. What is significant, though, is that these protests, although amateurish and small, represent something new in American politics. These are people who never protested before, but are now moved to take to the streets. Protest is what you do when you lose, and these good people, representatives of the middle class, for the first time see themselves as losers. That is not a good thing. We are entering a dark and dangerous time.img_0176
