Just like there are two sides to every coin, the FLIP SIDE is an opposite viewpoint to the political topic being discussed at hand. Our goal is to have a news site that is appealing to all Americans, regardless of political view. We will always try to offer two points of view to our opinion articles whenever we can.

Can the USA Still Learn From the Boston Tea Party

What was the Boston Tea Party? Believe it or not, a profound amount of Americans actually don’t know what it was. Briefly, the colonists of Boston, Massachusetts were upset with England trying to monopolize the tea market. At this point in time, England had already repealed most of the taxes, however, they wanted the colonists to know they were still under British rule by enforcing the tea tax.
