Will YOU Save Freedom? Catch The Tea Party Wave

 

The Tea Party movement has taken the nation by storm, in spite of attempts by the media and establishment to first ignore it, then dismiss it and now use all the tools in their Alinsky toolbox against it.  Initially protesting high taxes, spending and bailouts, it is maturing into a political movement that advocates a return to a constitutional republic, fiscal prudence and restoration of liberties.

 Tea Party Threat Made Good

 

How should the Tea Party address that? Protests? Voter education? Advocacy? Evaluating public officials and candidates?  PACs?  A third party?  Turn out the vote?

We have been working on this and hope to come up with a better layout soon, per our meeting last night. thank you for your concern, you are not alone!
I've always focused on National elections more than statewide, which is odd, because as the saying goes, all politics is local. I've changed my way of thinking lately. While I still believe we need to elect national leaders who agree with our philosophy, the quickest way to affect real change is through our states representatives. Living on the "Left Coast", that is a pretty BIG task to elect some leaders with (pardon my expression) some balls to ignore the action of the Feds that are not enumerated in the U.S. Constitution. It was the several states that created the monster that is our Federal Government, and only the states through "We the People" can bind the monster down with the chains of the Constitution, as eloquently stated by Thomas Jefferson.
The one thing that gives me hope (and no...it's definitely NOT Obama!) is the several states that are finally stepping up and beginning to say NO! to the Feds.
Me, too. I couldn't even remember who my state reps were until last year. Folks, you can easily look them up on our elections forum.

Declaration of Tea Party Independence
Author unknown, February 24, 2010

This is making the rounds on the Internet. Please make a comment below and tell us what you think.

Declaration of Tea Party Independence

I. As the course of human events winds its way through History, it has found some paths lead to Tyranny and some to Liberty. In seeking a path to Liberty, a great and powerful movement is now rising from every corner of our land. Created by the Will of the American People, it rejects unconstitutional domination by the Government that is supposed to be its servant. This movement has arisen, in large part, because our elected officials have failed us.

For much of its history the United States has been a land of prosperity and liberty, sound policies such as fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and a belief in the free market have safeguarded this condition. In recent years however, Congress, the President, the Federal Reserve Board and the Courts have replaced those practices with profligate government spending and expansion of the government power beyond what is constitutionally permissible.

This course, if not reversed, can only lead to economic collapse and tyranny.

Therefore, Individuals acting through the Tea Party Movement, seek to restore the policies, which are proven to safeguard liberty and prosperity for all. We will organize, demonstrate and vote until this restoration has been achieved. We will stay focused on this goal and remain INDEPENDENT from any persons or political parties who seek to distract us from this end.

Many seek to define this Movement, to use it, to lead it, to co-opt it, to channel it, to control it, to defeat it.

WE WILL NOT LET THIS HAPPEN.

The Tea Party Movement is in agreement with our Founders that the government that governs least governs best. We believe that Capitalism – NOT GOVERNMENT – is essential to the creation of wealth and a vastly reduced government provides the foundation for a thriving Capitalist system.

The Tea Party Movement of America embraces and serves people of all races, creeds, religions, and political affiliations, and we declare ourselves to be independent of all those forces that seek to manipulate our actions or control our destiny.

II. We Declare ourselves INDEPENDENT of the Democrat Party and its power drunk junta in Washington DC, which is currently seeking to impose a Socialist agenda on our Republic.

We reject arrogant Left-wing politicians who furtively hide from public scrutiny, as they cut corrupt deals loaded with earmarks and pork in order to produce 2000 page pieces of legislation so purposely incomprehensible, they do not even bother to read them before foisting them upon us.

We reject the endless creation of myriad federal government agencies that drown free enterprise and local control in the swarms of education, energy, ecology, and commercebureaucrats who style themselves “czars” sent to harass us. We reject the creation of federal government regulations and agencies which demand the States pay for unfunded Federal mandates.

We reject a Democrat Party which refuses to give credence to our demands for just redress of grievances and which insults and seeks to demonize our legal right to peacefully protest the unjust laws it inflicts upon us.

We reject a profligate Government that is spending TRILLIONS of dollars on worthless socialist schemes designed to bankrupt us and put the American people in a position of dependence on the State, as peasants begging for their very sustenance from self-styled “educated classes” and so-called “experts”.

We reject a foreign policy which bows and scrapes and apologizes before the world for America.

We reject an Attorney General of the United States who offers succor and rights to vicious terrorist murderers and seeks to protect them with a mock civilian trial when such enemy combatants, captured on the field of battle, should be tried in secure military courts.

We reject the claims of an un-elected Federal Judiciary to violate the separation of powers by demanding its decisions be enforced by the other coequal branches of government, regardless of how unconstitutional the other branches of government may think those decisions are.

We reject all acts that ignore or diminish the 2nd and 10th Amendments to the US Constitution and we seek to have all powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution to be reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

III. We Declare ourselves INDEPENDENT of the Republican Party, which has in the past manipulated its Conservative Base to win election after election and which then betrays everything that Base fought for and believed.

We reject the idea that the electoral goals of the Republican Party are identical to the goals of the Tea Party Movement or that this Movement is an adjunct to the Republican Party.

We reject the Republican Party professionals who now seek to use the Tea Party Movement for their corrupt and narrow political purposes.

We acknowledge that standing on our principles does not mean throwing out our common sense; we will NOT abandon our principles in the name of a nonexistent bipartisanship or a misguided devotion to an illusion of “pragmatism”, which disguises a desire to betray us in its name.

We reject the scare tactics of the Republican Party, which seeks to herd us into voting for candidates who supposedly represent the “lesser of two evils” in the name of fealty to the principle of small government and then having to suffer such candidates as they betray that principle. We are not well served by parasites whose livelihoods depend on the very State whose power to reward or sanction we elected them to limit and proscribe.

We insist that the Tea Party Movement does NOT consider the election of Republicans in and of itself to be necessarily beneficial to our goals.

We demand the Republican Party understand that we reject its attempts to co-opt us. WE WILL WORK AGAINST THEM when they oppose our views by trying to force Republicans In Name Only (RINO) on us. When Republicans are in accord with their Conservative Base as well as the Independent voters who align with it, IT WINS; when they are NOT in accord with the Conservative Base and the Independent voters who align with it, IT LOSES.

We reject RINO money; we reject RINO “advice”; we reject RINO “professional experience”

We reject RINO “progressivism”; we reject RINO support of Big Government; we reject RINO back room deal making; we reject RINO pork spending; we reject false RINO professions of Conservative views and we reject the RINO’s statist subversion of the principles of small government for which the Republican Party is supposed to stand.

Republican Party attempts to ignore the will of the Base, as it did in 1976, 1992, 1996, 2006 and 2008, resulted in disaster; when it embraces the will of the Base, as it did in 1980, 1984 and 1994, it wins historic victories.

We demand the Republican Party recognize that while the Tea Party Movement cannot guarantee their aid will help them win elections, it is very likely WE CAN MAKE THEM LOSE if they are disdainful of our goals.

IV. We Declare ourselves INDEPENDENT of the Media, which has proved itself to be anything BUT a fair and balanced enterprise and which focuses more on entertainment, fear mongering and shock value than investigation and unbiased fact.

We reject the fiction that an unbiased media still exists; there is friendly media and there is unfriendly ENE-media. The Tea Party Movement refuses to give false credence to the self-aggrandizing, self-deluding lie that ANY PART of the Fourth Estate is free of the self-serving agendas of those who own them.

V. We Declare ourselves INDEPENDENT of self-styled “leaders” who claim to speak for the Tea Party Movement. This movement is not a brand name to be used to sell product; nor is it a logo to be used to justify profiting off its name.

We reject those who seek to personally capitalize on our popularity and momentum by trying to associate with our cause.

We reject the idea that the Tea Party Movement is “led” by anyone other than the millions of average citizens who make it up. The Tea Party Movement understands that as a Free People, we need to SAVE OURSELVES, BY OURSELVES, FOR OURSELVES.

The Tea Party Movement is not “led.” The Tea Party Movement LEADS.

VI. We are united in our common belief in Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally

Limited Government and Free Markets. This threefold purpose is the source of our unity in the Tea Party Movement.

We reject the idea that the Tea Party Movement must all be unanimous in our specific policy views in order to win. We recognize that the current situation requires we come together in confederation to achieve the MANY MUTUAL GOALS we all seek to accomplish.

We recognize that the current situation requires that we concentrate on the many things we have in common rather than those few things about which we may disagree.

We are the Tea Party Movement of America and we believe in American Exceptionalism.

We believe that American Exceptionalism is found in its devotion to the cause of Liberty.

We believe that Liberty is based in rational self-interest, in freedom of thought, in free markets, free association, free speech, a free press and the ability granted us under the Constitution TO DIRECT OUR OWN AFFAIRS FREE OF THE DICTATES OF AN EVER EXPANDING FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHICH IS AS VORACIOUS IN ITS DESIRE FOR POWER AS IT IS INCOMPETENT AND DANGEROUS IN ITS EXERCISE.

We believe that either fate or history has chosen this Country to be a beacon of freedom and prosperity to the whole world because of America’s belief in and vigorous defense of political and economic Liberty. The United States has been the instrument of Liberty against the many tyrannies that have threatened the people of this world.

The Tea Party Movement rejects the idea that America has to apologize to a far guiltier world that has been largely unappreciative of the sacrifices made on their behalf by the brave and noble members of our Armed Forces, whose sacrifice and patriotic service in our defense makes all else possible.

The Tea Party Movement rejects the imposition of “transformational change” performed on our Nation by smug elites who call themselves the “educated class”.

The Tea Party Movement understands that our Nation is NOT the same thing as our government and that America is much more than simply a militarily and economically powerful State.

The Tea Party Movement sees America as something exceptional, as something unique, as something that came into existence to fulfill the hope of all previous generations that longed for freedom.

It came into existence because it is more than simply a country with land and population and riches and armaments. America came into existence because LIBERTY is an eternal concept in the mind of both God AND Man.

The United States of America came into existence because Mankind needs freedom the same way it needs food and air and property and security and love.

And what is freedom other than the RIGHT to be free of the tyranny of Government and the elitist, self-styled aristocrats who seek to run it at our expense and to our detriment?

The Tea Party Movement will fight this danger to our Liberty as long as its members have breath in their bodies.

When America didn’t exist men and women were compelled to invent it, BECAUSE MANKIND CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT FREEDOM AND STILL BE FULLY HUMAN.

To this goal we mutually pledge to each other, as our Founding Fathers did over two centuries ago, our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

February 24, 2010
Demonstrations like this December 5, 2009 Anti-Pelosi rally in Irvine CA, make a strong statement, but have not significantly changed votes in Washington and have been downplayed, or even ignored by the media, which lavished more attention on the few immigration and gay rights advocates there that evening. However, we have built a base of Tea Party activists and followers.

I was at event one with David Stewart, VCTP Webmaster (this site). You can see my orange "Patriots for Pelosi" sign in multiple places on this video. What was surprising is that the demonstration got bigger, angrier and louder as the night went on, even constricting and rattling drivers trying to get onto the grounds, which we weren't allowed into for some strange reason :-)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKgJoWJqRMA&feature=related

There's also an event photo collage attached to the main page of this section, above
The Tea Parties are now getting involved in other activities, besides just carrying signs, chanting slogans and badgering unresponsive legislators. Some activities are done under the auspices of the various Tea Party organizations, some are done by motivated individuals. Examples:

- Voter education
- Research
- Endorsing candidates
- Supporting, campaigning for candidates
- Supporting, promoting various initiatives- Tenth Amendment, term limits, fiscal restraint, etc.
It is interesting that the loosely-organized tea party movement (tea party intentionally not capitalized) is able to gather momentum quickly, adapt to changing circumstances, pull off electoral upsets, elude attempts by media and politicians to categorize it, and defy attempts to control it.

I believe that is precisely because it is not a formal organization with a strict heirarchy, layers of organization, designated leaders, a single committee-derived platform, and other trappings of most political organizations.

When it comes to tea party activities, the PEOPLE lead, the PEOPLE determine the agenda, the PEOPLE come up with the ideas. Others join in (or they don't) based on their own judgment. Activities and ideas flourish or wane on their merit.

George and I are kayakers. There's a saying that leading kayakers is like herding cats. Tea party people are mostly independent types (like kayakers) and aren't easily herded. That's a good thing in my view. A group which stands for liberty, independence, and respect for individual rights cannot be led around by the nose if it is to remain powerful and effective.

Best,
Lee
Yes, it's both a strength and a weakness. I laugh when the MSM says we're "Astroturf" and controlled by "Sarah Palin," Dick Armey, Russ Limbaugh, GOP, or whomever, although they all try.

They should come to a Tea Party, or better yet, a Tea Party planning meeting. Your "herding cats" term is far more accurate. Actually, some MSM do come to Tea Parties. Some make fools of themselves trying to twist and spin what is happening, Some report it accurately. I would have to say that our local newspaper, the Star, covered the April 15 event fairly, although the overall spin about the Tea Party movement is not at all positive.

There seems to be quite a wide political spectrum represented among our fellow kayakers.
Our PROBLEM "as voters" is that we hire our representatives as if they were "employees." We interview them and select the one who best blows smoke at us (using the same old lines), or looks the best or is "recommended" by our political party. We then put them in a position where they have no supervision or accountability no transparency. So we end up with an unsupervised employee selling out to the highest bidder.

Our SOLUTION "as voters" is to hire our representatives as if they were "contractors." Look at their work, look at their history, talk to people near them and then "require them to put it in writing" -- Contract4Office -- and if they don't perform they would be penalized -- just like a contractor.

It should be the Tea Party that puts these "contractors" feet to the fire! It should be the Tea Party that reduces all of the candidates promises to writing, identifies the penalties and has them sign it.

If we are ever going to have an honest government we are going to have to think outside the box and come up with something new and refreshing.

Darrell, respectfully, I understand the logic of your comments and at a high level, I agree with you. I would like to comment that IMO, the liberals, in your SOLUTION would also hire as if they were contractors. Your scenario assumes that all voters would get with the "hire as contractors" idea. The belief that liberal voters would not demand, for example; put in writing that you will not cut my Welfare payments, or put in writing that you will not send my illegal alien sister back to Mexico, type concerns is not IMO a workable solution. The liberals would stilll pander to get their votes.

Now, if you were to favor, say, a requirement that our elected officials were required to vote the will of the majority of thier constituents or face impeachment rather than voting their "conscience", I could support that. Even then, liberals could still pander if they were the majority.

As long as our politicians can vote their conscience we will have the Boxers and Feinsteins and Pelosis of the world, doing what they think is right for us (what their money brokers want to have happen) and not the will of the people.

"There are 27 amendments in the Constitution but only one says 'shall not be infringed,'" Steve Toth said. "The Second Amendment is the amendment that keeps the people free."

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes

How can we stand up to someone that creates a 100 dollar Federal Reserve (FR) note for 2 cents and uses the face value of the note of 100 dollars to buy a 100 dollar U.S. Security where the government has to pay them 4% in interest at the end of the year?
