Statement of Tea Party Values

What are the values of the Tea Party? Here is a simple statement about them that you can send to your newspaper editor. Time to dispel the rumors of Tea Party AWOL, dead, etc. In short, "Rumors of our death are greatly exaggerated."

THIS IS US:

To the Editor,
 
The 2012 federal elections are the most important elections in a generation. Americans will be deciding whether to stay true to the principles of our Founders or take a turn towards the European socialist system we see collapsing across the Atlantic. 
 
Since 2009, the Tea Party has opposed overspending from both parties, and supported a return to the Constitution. As a member of Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest Tea Party organization, I encourage your readers to consider the following when they go into the booth on November 6:
1.     Fiscal Responsibility: balancing the budget will prevent us from being like Greece, Portugal, Ireland, and Spain.

2.     Free markets will encourage competition which will spark innovation and economic growth to help get people back to work.

3.     Constitutionally-limited government will stop overreaches by the federal government, in everything from economically harmful regulations to unconstitutional TSA screenings.

4.     The President’s health care law increases federal spending, moves the decision making power from the doctor/patient relationship to the federal government, and violates the First Amendment rights of all Americans. It should be overturned by Congress.
America is the greatest nation the world has ever seen, and I believe it is important we continue this legacy. The core principles of Tea Party Patriots will allow us to move forward in a positive direction.
