Massachusetts was a key part of the American Revolution from the Boston Tea Party to the “shot heard round the world” in the battle at Concord.
It is incredibly fitting, then, that it is Massachusetts that gives the grass roots uprising generally known over the last year under the Tea Party name its biggest victory by far. Scott Brown campaigned on conservative principles and raised his funds not from large donors but from small online donations of under $80 each.
We hope this election is a clear signal to our elected officials that “back room deals… to buy… votes” are no way to run the country.
To paraphrase our first lady, for the first time in our adult life we’re really proud of Massachusetts. 🙂
In this case, though, what makes us proud is that the people of Massachusetts once again stood up for freedom and liberty, and against a government that had been refusing to listen.
