Tea Party Movement

Tea Rat: I think I'm going to join the "Tea Party Movement."

Rattus: Good for you. The Tea Party Movement wants to return to so-called original interpretations of the Constitution, reduce government spending, the national debt, and of course taxes. I don't agree with everything they believe in. For example, an original reading of the Constitution would mean that African Americans would still be only "Three-Fifths" of a person. Nevertheless, it's good to see citizens like yourself availing themselves of the democratic process to bring about change.

Tea Rat: I don't know anything about that. I just love tea parties.
