The Boston Tea Party was an act by liberal American colonists against Great Britain in which they dumped tea transported by British ships into Boston Harbor to protest the British East India Company's monopoly on tea and taxation without representation. Conservatives were appalled at such wanton destruction of private property and went crying to the British to punish the evil socialists who had committed the crime. The incident, which took place on Thursday, December 16, 1773, has been seen as helping spark the American Revolution.

In 2009, Conservatives, completely missing the point of the Boston Tea Party, decided to buy a bunch of tea and throw it in government-funded public parks in order to protest taxes, which they don't understand are necessary for society to function...and to have parks. While tax rates paid in 2009 were set entirely by Republicans several years prior, Conservatives all of a sudden decided that taxation with representation is 1773-style tyranny and that they should throw tea on the ground to protest Democrats and their taxes. These people are geniuses.

The United States needs to give citizens in the District of Columbia the right to vote because they pay taxes but do not have representation in Congress.
