Though the Columbus Tax Day Tea Party was an outgrowth of the Ron Paul liberty movement, the event was co-opted by those who seek something less than liberty.
This evening, I took my family to the Statehouse lawn to see the affair. On stage were all the usual suspects. In fact, our former congressman (Kasich) spent the evening clowning for the cameras.
The whole event reminded me of the scene from Pumping Iron where Arnold and the other politicians -- er, bodybuilders -- subtly push and shove to get center stage. Very disappointing.
