Cincinnati Tea Party Video

I guess I should start bringing my video camera with me to these events in addition to my regular camera. Beautiful video of this wonderful event that I found on Youtube.

    Ugh… the Tea Act lowered taxes on tea it did not raise them. Smugglers were the ones to dump tea into Boston Harbor…

    A tax on tea would be maintained, but the company would actually be able to sell its tea for a price that was lower than before. A MONOPOLY doesn’t allow for competition. As such the British East India Company could lower its prices.

    The colonists, Lord North hoped, would be happy to receive cheaper tea and willing to pay the tax. This would have the dual result of saving the tea company and securing compliance from Americans on the tax issue. It was a brilliant plan. There was, of course, one major flaw in his thinking.

    The colonists saw through this thinly veiled plot to encourage tax payment. Furthermore, they wondered how long the monopoly would keep prices low.
