BOSTON (AP) - Boston is where a protest over tax policy sparked one revolution.

And today it's where modern day tea party activists are cheering the recent Republican revolt in Washington that embarrassed House Speaker John Boehner and pushed the country closer to a "fiscal cliff'' that forces tax increases and massive spending cuts on virtually every American.

Greater Boston Tea Party President Christine Morabito wants conservatives to stay strong and she says "sometimes, things have to get a lot worse before they get better.''

Anti-tax conservatives from every corner of the nation echo her sentiment.        

In more than a dozen interviews with The Associated Press, activists said they would rather fall off the cliff than agree to a compromise that includes tax increases for any Americans, no matter how high their income.
