Who Would Sam Adams Vote for on Tuesday?

Many people fond of imbibing the beverage named after the American patriot, Samuel Adams, are not aware that Sam Adams was the principal organizer of the greatest party for free people of all time: the Boston Tea Party.

Adams managed a few other achievements in his day, not the least of which was founding the Sons of Liberty, whose motto was "no taxation without representation." He worked tirelessly toward, and signed, the Declaration of Independence. He served as Governor of Massachusetts.

It is worthwhile to consider who Sam Adams would stand behind for U.S. senator, if he had to choose between Scott Brown and Martha Coakley.

For guidance, we can look back at what Adams had to say in 1780, when the leaders of the country were all men who had already put on the line their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor:
If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.
The entire country is looking to the people of Massachusetts to get to their voting booths this coming Tuesday, September 19, a day that doubtless will be recorded in history.

An experienced patriot is waiting to serve.
