Throw Another Big Government on the Barbie: Tea Party in the Outback

TEA is going global:


Welcome to the party, Australia:

An anti-tax, anti-government Tea Party has set up shop in Australia, inspired by the US-based movement that has turned the Republican Party upside down.

The Australian T.E.A. Party (an acronym for Taxed Enough Already) will be targeting pre-selections across the country and heavily promotes its links to “our friends” in the United States.

Reluctant spokesman David Goodridge – “just call me the website editor” – says the grassroots movement has no plans to register as a political party, won’t stand candidates and won’t accept politicians as members.

The group’s website is here.

The press continues to parrot the “anti-tax, anti-government” line to try and make the Tea Party sound like a bunch of freaky-deaky anarchists. The “limited government which will result in economic growth and increased protection of liberties” Tea Party is a better way to put it, not that the media cares.

If the Australian Tea Party would like a celebrity on board, I think Paul Hogan might be amenable to joining.
