The founders wrote the U.S. Constitution with the protection of private property foremost in their minds. Property is the fruit of our labor, and the founders knew that limiting the government’s ability to tax or confiscate our property was one of the best ways to ensure individual liberty.
Many in the establishment media have blamed Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and talk radio for this tragedy, while the facts prove otherwise:

"Humphries has been instructed by police to "stay away from public places" after he and his family received numerous threats from people who seem to hold him and his organization responsible for Jared Lee Loughner's shooting rampage.
Back in the summer of 2007, in a long puff piece extolling the virtues of Sen. John Edwards, then a Democratic candidate for president, Matt Bai of the New York Times wrote, “After watching Bush and the Republicans turn John Kerry into the caricature of a vacillating politician, Edwards came away from the 2004 campaign with a critical insight: campaigns are about who you are, not what policies you propose.” Of course, we all know who John Edwards is and will forever remain: the man who cheated on his cancer-stricken wife, fathering a child with his mistress.

Local tea party groups need to decide whether they should get involved in "social issues".
It’s understandable that a victim of Tucson’s shooting rampage, which killed 6 and wounded 14 (including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords), would be angry. And it’s only human that he would wish the shooter ill. But 63-year-old Democratic Party activist James Eric Fuller appears to be angry with everyone but the alleged shooter, Jared Loughner. In various interviews, Fuller, who was shot in the left knee, said the Tucson tragedy was inspired by Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Nevada’s GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle and even the new House Speaker John Boehner – none of whom were anywhere near the scene of the crime.
In the aftermath of the horrible events in Tucson, I can certainly appreciate how Tea Party organizations around the nation may be feeling a high degree of sensitivity. As Congresswoman Giffords is a Democrat, fresh off a highly combative and nasty congressional race with a Tea Party backed candidate, the first reaction of many liberals will be to point a finger in the direction of the Tea Party.
Independent Does Not Mean Unaccountable January 16, 2011 Tom W. Shaw - State Representative, Iowa House District 8 I was present in the Iowa House chambers on Wednesday morning, January 12th, and listened to the Condition of the Judiciary speech delivered by Iowa Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark Cady. After discussing the financial woes of the Judicial Department, he launched into a tongue-lashing directed at the elected representatives of “We the People” of Iowa, and also at “We the People” themselves.
Chief Justice Cady dishonors and disrespects the People, the People’s House, and our Constitution. If arrogance was an impeachable offense the remaining four members of the Iowa Supreme Court would already be impeached. It probably would have happened yesterday.
Welcome to Washington, Tea Partiers. Now that they're freshmen in a GOP-run House, the political movement's candidates are running smack into the traditions, partisan divisions and powerful competing interests that make it so hard to redirect the government. Some Tea Party activists — part of a loose-knit, libertarian-tinged network advocating small government and less federal spending — already are dismayed to see their new lawmakers plunge into familiar patterns of raising political cash, hiring former lobbyists and stopping short of the often-heard vow to "change the way Washington works." Others are more lenient and patient. "There's a little bit of expectation that they can do more than they really can do," said Sal Russo, a California-based co-founder of the Tea Party Express. Democrats still control the Senate and White House, he noted in an interview from Wyoming, where he was visiting potential Senate candidates for 2012.
