While answering a question on Morning Joe about the future of the Tea Party, Florida State Representative Mike Hill said that the movement had been fighting tyranny in America since the country’s beginnings:
“Whenever tyranny raises its head, so does the spirit of the Tea Party that will come up and fight that tyranny. We saw it with the Revolutionary War, we saw it with the Civil War, we saw with the women’s suffrage movement, we saw it with the civil rights movement, and now seeing it again because people are rising up against tyranny tearing down the walls of our Constitution. They want to be protected by the Constitution. That’s what Tea Party is. When that tyranny has been defeated, it will melt back into the fabric of society until the next time tyranny raises its head.”
