Glenn Cheney (glenncheney) | 6 comments Did you see the op-ed in the New York Times on sunday, Nov. 21, about the Tea Party and the Pilgrims being socialists who gave up?

Here's a link to a letter to the editor on the issue. From there you can link to the op-ed.

TheAccidental  Reader From the letter to the editor: "The truth is, these early settlers, whose principles still underlie the American ideal, worked for their individual benefit while cooperating with one another for their mutual benefit.

They built private homes and public buildings. They had private property and public space." That seems to me to describe the TeaPartiers perfectly. Not sure why the writer thinks otherwise.
