Tea
 Parties Priority: The
 Voice 
of 
America,
 Despite 
Media’s 
insinuations
!

they’re
 not
 just 
a
 Republican
 power
 play! The
 United
 States 
of 
America 
was
 created 
to
 provide
 a
haven
 and
 home 
for
 immigrants 
and
 has
 developed
 into 
one 
of 
the
biggest
 and 
diverse
countries
in
 the 
world.

Our 
Founding
 Fathers 
wrote
 the
 Constitution
 in
 order to
 provide
 Americans
 with
 guidelines
 and
 hope
 for
a 
new
 country
 and
 way 
of
 life.
 Now hundreds 
of
 years 
later
 Americans 
are
 trying 
to
find
 the
 voices 
they 
used
 to call
 out 
to 
England 
and
 the 
world
 demanding
 they
 be 
recognized.

 The
difference 
is 
today 
it’s 
happening
 in 
their 
own 
towns 
and
 they’re pleading
for 
their 
own
 government,
the
 one
 created
 to
 protect
 and 
help
 them,
to
 do
as 
they
 have 
promised. 

Through omnipresence of camera as 
for everything 
today
 it 
was
 a 
reason able
 expectation 
that
 their 
fight
 would
 be shown 
on
 the
news
 and 
listened 
to.

 Instead
 they 
were either
 ignored 
or
 berated 
as
 fools.

The 
media
 gave
 the 
people
 a
dialogue
 of 
anti- Americanism
 using
 sound
 and image 
bites 
to 
give 
the
 audience
 them pressing of rabble
 rousers. The
 freedom 
of
 speech 
all owed
 to
 them
 by
 the 
shapes
 of 
our country
 was 
in 
full effect. The
Tea (Taxed Enough
 Already)Parties 
took 
place
 on
 April 
15th 2009,
all
 across 
the
 country. 

It
 was 
a
 gathering
 of 
people
 to
 protest
 taxation
primarily 
and 
harkened 
back 
to 
the
 original 
Tea
 Party 
held
 in
 Boston 
when
 the 
Sons 
of
 Liberty
 tossed
 chests
 of 
tea
 in to 
the 
harbor 
to 
protest 
unfair
 taxation.

History

The Tea Party movement is an American political movement known for advocating a reduction in the U.S. national debt and federal budget deficit by reducing U.S. government spending and taxes. The movement has been called a mix of libertarian, populist and conservative persons. It has sponsored multiple protests and supported various political candidates since 2009, and demonstrators at the U.S. Capitol celebrated the movement’s five-year anniversary in February 2014. Various polls have found that slightly over 10% of Americans identify as a member. The name refers to the Boston Tea Party of 1773. Anti-tax protesters in the United States have cited the original Boston Tea Party as their inspiration. References to the Boston Tea Party were part of Tax Day protests held in the 1990s and before.

Commentaries on origin!

Fox News Channel commentator Juan Williams says that the Tea Party movement emerged from the “ashes” of Ron Paul’s 2008 presidential primary campaign.Indeed, Ron Paul has stated that its origin is in 2007 when supporters held a “moneybomb” fundraising event on the Boston Tea Party’s anniversary, but that others, including Republicans, took over and changed the movement’s core beliefs. Jane Mayer has said that the Koch brothers were essential in funding and strengthening the movement, through groups such as Americans for Prosperity. In 2013, a study published in the journal Tobacco Control concluded that organizations within the movement were connected with non-profit organizations that the tobacco industry and other corporate interests worked with and provided funding for, including groups Citizens for a Sound Economy (founded by the Koch brothers). Al Gore cited the study and said that the connections between “market fundamentalists”, the tobacco industry and the Tea Party could be traced to a 1971 memo from tobacco lawyer Lewis F. Powell, Jr. who advocated more political power for corporations. Gore said that the Tea Party is an extension of this political strategy “to promote corporate profit at the expense of the public good.”

Tea Party Core Values

A Tea Party leader launched in mid-2009. We have received thousands of ideas; a national online vote resulted in ten positions, presented at our Tax Day Tea Party.

  1. The Contract From America: Our moral, political, and economic liberties are inherent, not granted by government. The purpose of our government is to exercise only those limited powers that have been relinquished to it by the people. We call upon those seeking to represent us to work to bring each agenda item to a vote during the years:
  2. Require each bill to identify its empowering provision of the Constitution.
  3. Reject Cap-and-Trade.
  4. Demand a Balanced Budget.
  5. Enact fundamental tax reform.
  6. Return all illegal aliens to Mexico, All to include the ones that were moved to hidden in places we don’t know about.
  7. Close the borders into the United States of American, place permanently 10,000 National guard to defend our continental borders.
  8. Restore limited government by eliminating unconstitutional agencies.
  9. End runaway government spending.
  10. Defund, repeal, & replace Government-run health care.
  11. Stop the Pork: moratorium on earmarksy.
  12. Pass an All-of-the-Above energy policy.
  13. Stop the Tax Hikes.
  14. Enact fundamental tax reform
  15. Restore limited government by eliminating unconstitutional agencies
  16. End runaway government spending.
  17. Defund, repeal, & replace Government-run health care
  18. Enact fundamental Social Security law putting funds into a locked box, not to used for poor federal government mistakes
  19. Force federal government to hold to its promise of taken care of Military Veterans
  20. End runaway government spending.

Culture

What matters is that the Tea Party movement is learning how to best affect the political process. We’re getting more savvy every day. Politics has become a career path, rather than a duty to serve, the way the Founders intended it to be. So it’s up to us–all of us–to change things. How can we do that? Through a 3 part plan. Over the next 2 years, the Tea Party movement’s strategy includes 3 p’s (1) prod, (2) pressure, and (3) primary. What do we mean by this?

  1. As citizens, it’s our responsibility to petition our government to do the right thing
  2. When politicians of any party act against our interests, it’s up to us to call attention to their failures, immediately, loudly and as publicly as possible.
  3. When all else fails, the Tea Party movement has shown it knows how to use the power of direct democracy to replace lawmakers who don’t support its core values of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets
  4. Demand a Balanced Budget.

Original 1773 Tea Party fought ruling establishment also The original Tea Party took place in Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773, over a mere 3-cent tax. Today we don’t consider those who took part in the protests “extremists” but patriots, who in resisting the British Crown helped kick-start a necessary and just revolution.
Today’s Tea Party’s are typically not accorded the same respect by our mainstream political and media establishment, even as they protest a government arguably more arrogant than that of 18th century England. A tax on tea was an outrage to our ancestors. A $2 trillion deficit and $13 trillion debt has not become an outrage to their descendants. It wasn’t unusual for British officials and the press to view colonists who resisted the ruling regime in less-than-flattering terms. (Similarly, as representatives of the current ruling establishment today’s political and media elite have little good to say about the Tea Party.)

Challenges

Our nationwide survey of local Tea Parties turned up about 1000 groups spread across all 50 states, including about 800 groups that appeared to be active in the spring and early summer of 2011. Some local Tea Parties are very large, with online membership lists of 1000 people or more. But most local Tea Parties have much smaller contact lists, and the typical meeting has a few dozen people in attendance. Overall, a generous assumption is that approximately 800 active local Tea Parties have, on overage, 200 members apiece–that is, people who sign up to be regularly notified and attend gatherings at least occasionally. That multiplies out to 160,000 very active grassroots participants in Tea Parties across the US

  1. Find Tea Party Organizations
  2. Get more awareness to conservatives that are not content with the Republican and Democratic Parties .
  3. Get more local Tea Party Conferences /w speakers that carry the message.
  4. Setup up a general fund and donations to help promote and get elected tea party officals .
