It's been 10 years since the Tea Party's miraculous rise from nowhere to forge a new chapter in American History. 10 years is a good milepost to take stock and look back. But before we look at the history we made, it is just as important to look at the friendships that were forged in the crucible of our freedom movement. It is in those friendships that the humanity of our movement lies and it is these friendships that will [...]
Remember a time when there was no Tea Party. Remember when there was no freedom movement that sliced and diced its way to relevance and influence? A movement that shook the wall of establishment politics until its very foundations cracked and crumbled. A decade ago, I remember feeling alone.
