Massachusetts, birthplace of John Adams and home of MIT, the nation's premier science and technology college remains one of the country's most economically vital places. Science, research, medicine all provide jobs to the growing, well educated population. Mitt Romney, former Republican governor of Massachusetts and presidential candidate represents the Mormons, which are a small fraction of the population. As a hotbed of the American Revolution, Massachusetts hosted the Boston Tea Party. Interestingly, nobody drank any tea at that party. Rather it was held as a protest to King George's oppressive rule and taxation policies. Regardless of what you may say about the English, they are famous for really good tea parties. And while Boston has great tea, the Boston Tea Party was arguably the largest pot of tea ever brewed, consisting of the whole Boston harbor.
