One upon a time, derkraut, a group of people wrote laws that were easy for their subjects to accept. Over time, as new laws and restrictions gathered on, the citizens were more controlled and had less liberty. They slowly got a bit upset but were able to keep smiling and waving to each other and just grumbled now and again. More restrictions came until people couldn't stand it any longer. Then a bunch of people dressed up like Native Americans, trespassed onto corporately-owned ships, and tossed a bunch of really expensive private property into the water. Damn them! Who do they think they were? Didn't they respect the law? Why should all the other citizens have to do without their tea - and what were they going to do with all those tannin-stained fish?
Read up on the real Tea Party, derkraut. Then read the ENTIRE Constitution with amendments. And the Declaration of Independence if you've got extra time. Then read this:

Then look around at the USA and ask yourself why police are detaining the press, why Amnesty International deployed observers in the USA, and see if you can recall where in the Constitution it said that free speech or the right to peacefully assemble was limited to a specific time or place.

PPS - feel free to tell us what law is broken when traffic is stopped on a road. Thanks in advance.
