TULSA TEA PARTY OFFICIAL MISSION STATEMENT:
We are a non-partisan, non-profit, issues based organization united by our shared core values to preserve the Constitutional Rights of WE THE PEOPLE of the United States of America, by limiting government; constraining government spending and taxation; and advancing a free market economy.
OUR CORE VALUES -- WHAT WE STAND FOR:
Limited Government ? As our Founding Fathers recognized, restraint of government is necessary to protect the liberties of the people.
Fiscal Responsibility ? Government at all levels must learn to live within its means. To saddle future generations with the crushing burden of our excess spending is unconscionable.
States' Rights ? The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respective, or to the People.
National Sovereignty ? We must maintain a strong national defense, effective security for our borders, and sole control over our land and our laws.
Personal Responsibility ? Liberty is unsustainable without responsibility. Each citizen must take responsibility for the consequences of his or her own actions while respecting the rights and dignity of others.
The Rule of Law ? Consistent, independent and uniform application of the law is critical to a free and prosperous society.
CODE OF CONDUCT -- WHAT WE WON'T STAND FOR:
Personal Attacks ? Were debating positions and policies, not demonizing people or groups.
Unfounded Rumors ? The easily verifiable facts are bad enough. Dont weaken our position by stretching the truth.
