Barone on Tea Parties
Here is Michael Barone's
outline of the difference between the liberty lovers and the lovers of expanding government (Founders and Progressives). He is right in implying that Obama has raised the issue in a different way than say, Carter, and the Founders' school response then was to argue in favor of lower taxes (and not simply to starve government), and therefore the current (Tea Party) response is different: Obama now explicitly argues for increasing the size and scope of government, and those who want to conserve the freedom in the Revolution response is to argue against that more capacious and aggressive Progessivism by reminding folks that liberty is our goal, and dependence on government is bad for folks who like freedom.
