December 12th 2010– The Original Boston Tea Party at Historic Faneuil Hall
The Boston Tea Party 2010 was a resounding success. At how could it not? It was set at historical and incredibly inspiring Faneuil Hall. We got goose bumps listening to the intellectual elite of the Tea Party talking in the same stage that “held many patriotic meetings before and during the Revolution which kept alive amongst the people the fires of freedom and stirred them to greater deeds from which the hall became known as the Cradle of Freedom.”
This Tea Party gathering surpassed all others the Daily Tea Party has so far attended. The speakers trimmed all the fat and, as usual, were right in target, if perhaps a bit more focused as on solutions at this time. The videos bellow are a must watch for all Freedom Movement activists, as they are sure to educate and inspire. Just as the early patriots did at just the same place just about 200 years ago.
The key note speaker was former governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson. Followed by Economist Peter Schiff, truth advocate and author G. Edward Griffin, President of John Birch society John McManus, founder of Oath Keepers Stewart Rhodes, author and lecturer Constitutional Sheriff Richard Mack, Candidate for congress and radio talk show host Adam Kokesh, Liberty songwriter and musician Jordan Page, Jenn Coffey with Second Amendment Sisters, Steven Epstein with MA Cannabis reform coalition, Gary Franchi of Restore the Republic, Patriot Pastor Garrett Lear, and many others.
The event was organized by The Liberty Preservation Association of Massachusetts and its president Bob Dwyer.
From MassLPA: On December 16th 2007, we helped raise $6 million for Ron Paul with a visible presence here in Boston , where hundreds joined a rally at the state house, then marched down the Freedom Trail and gathered in the “Cradle of Liberty” Faneuil Hall for an historic speaker event with keynote speaker US Senator elect Rand Paul.
Dr. Rand Paul promoted the positive aspects of Capitalism amongst American policies of Bailouts and the benefits of a society that promotes self-determination and is now going to “represent us” in Washington DC..
This year, Gary Johnson, former Governor of New Mexico leads the all-star cast of speakers

Movement draws 200 at Hub event
Keith Bardascino may be only 25, but the North Andover resident is part of the younger generation that would rather spend a rainy afternoon listening to leaders of the Tea Party movement than watching episodes of MTV’s “Jersey Shore.’’
Bardascino was among about 200 people gathered yesterday at the Great Hall in Faneuil Hall for the fourth annual Boston Tea Party, featuring several speakers, including Gary Johnson, a former governor of New Mexico.
Bardascino said he became interested in the movement around the time US Representative Ron Paul sought the 2008 Republican nomination for president. He lamented that as the movement has become more mainstream, its message has been “diluted by an infiltration by political powers that really aren’t looking out for our best interests, basically just seeing an opportunity to get in there, seeing the passion in people’s hearts, and taking advantage of it.’’
Still, he sought to be inspired by the event’s speakers, specifically by Federal Reserve opponent G. Edward Griffin.
Griffin received thunderous applause after he dumped a paper symbolizing the Fed into a wooden crate emblazoned with the words “East India Co. Tea,’’ the product that was dumped into Boston Harbor during the Boston Tea Party protest on Dec. 16, 1773.
“Being here, being in the presence of a bunch of like-minded people is a breath of fresh air,’’ Bardascino said. “It’s nice just to see the turnout and be among brilliant minds.’’
Event organizer Bob Dwyer, a founding member of the Massachusetts Liberty Preservation Association, said Faneuil Hall provided the appropriate backdrop for the event and its message to “preserve liberty and protect the Constitution.’’
For Dwyer, the growth of the movement is a positive.
“The Tea Party movement is basically mainstream America saying, ‘We’ve had enough,’ ’’ Dwyer said.
“I think the shift is happening. We’re starting to get rid of the one-party politics in the state . . . so there’s a shift happening here in Massachusetts.’’
Johnson, a Republican held up as a possible presidential candidate in the 2012 election, said events like yesterday’s “put a voice over what I think is the national outrage over being bankrupt.’’
“I believe we’re on the verge of an imminent financial collapse and that we should be balancing the budget tomorrow,’’ he said.
State Senator Robert L. Hedlund, a Hingham Republican who is the minority whip, said the Tea Party movement is not just an ideology, but a “practical application to taking those beliefs and putting them forward in the political arena.’’Link
