Our Vision

We envision a nation
where personal freedom
is cherished and where
all Americans
are treated equally,
assuring our ability to
pursue the American Dream.

Our Core Principles

Tea Party Patriots stands for every American, and is home to millions who have come together to pursue the American Dream and to keep that Dream alive for their children and grandchildren.

What unites the tea party movement is the same set of core principles that brought America together at its founding, that kindled the American Dream in the hearts of those who struggled to build our nation, and made the United States of America the greatest, most successful country in world history.

At its root the American Dream is about freedom. Freedom to work hard and the freedom to keep the fruits of your labor to use as you see fit without harming others and without hindering their freedom. Very simply, three guiding principles give rise to the freedom necessary to pursue and live the American Dream:

Your personal freedom and your rights

The right to be free is endowed by our Creator and is the premise of our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the American way of life. The Constitution is a timeless document that guarantees our basic freedoms. We support personal freedom so all Americans can live life the way they want as long as it does not harm others, or infringe on another’s rights.

We are most free when the Constitution is followed and each branch of government serves as a check and balance to the others.

First Amendment Rights

Tea Party Patriots stands for the rights of all individuals as laid out in the first amendment. The Bill of Rights is a fundamental piece in securing our freedoms and every American possesses the right to free speech, the freedom of religion, freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble, and the right to petition our government. We will vigorously stand up for these rights for every American anytime they come under attack.

Second Amendment Rights

The Tea Party Patriots fully supports the preservation, protection and defense of your Second Amendment rights.  As we are aware there are varying thoughts and opinions on what the Right to Bear Arms entails, the Tea Party Patriots will oppose any attempt to revoke that right, but does not actively advocate for particular positions concerning this issue.  The Second Amendment has been upheld repeatedly in our court system up to and including the U.S. Supreme Court.

Voter Integrity

Exercising your right to vote and be heard is a fundamental principle upon which the United States was founded.  Voter laws should not keep us from wondering if the outcome of an election was truly the will of the people, or, if the outcome was fraudulent and wrong.

Economic freedom to grow jobs and your opportunities

We stand for economic freedom which means a growing economy with reduced tax rates and reduced government spending so we all have a chance to earn more money and businesses can hire more people. We support policies that allow you to keep more of your own money to do with as you see fit and policies that will provide for and enable opportunities to find good jobs or create and grow businesses. Likewise, we support policies that will present the best chances for the United States to grow and maintain its position as the world leader for economic opportunity.

Healthcare

Health care freedom means we can choose our own doctor and health insurance plans, without penalty from government if we do not choose unneeded options. We are capable of making our own choices when it comes to utilizing our hard-earned money to protect and care for our families and ourselves.

We have found that across all political groups –Americans place very high importance on the freedom to choose their own doctors, yet, increasingly, they do not feel that this freedom exists.

Big Government

Washington is too big, too powerful and too intrusive in our lives. Led by out of control agencies like the NSA and IRS, which have literally persecuted Americans for political reasons, Washington has become a threat to opportunity, freedom and rights. President Obama has been notorious for selectively enforcing the law, which directly threatens the Constitutional principle that we are all to be treated equally under the law.

Immigration

We believe this country was founded by people who immigrated here from other countries, enriched our country throughout history and continue to enrich it today.  We support the American Dream – the ability to come to this country, work hard, raise a family and fulfill your dreams and prosper.  What we have issue with is the notion that Washington should make subjective decisions of when to enforce our immigration laws and when to set them aside.

A debt free future for you and generations to come

We support a debt free future because it is only fair and right to pay the debt we have incurred so our children and grandchildren are not stuck with our bills. When the government speaks about “raising the debt ceiling,” they are simply saying they need to borrow more money they won’t ever pay back.  Continually increasing the debt of the United States puts an undue and unfair burden on future generations of Americans. It is fair and just to unburden our children from the national debt.

National Debt

Washington’s out of control spending has led to over 17 trillion in national debt. It is only fair and right to pay the debt we have incurred so our children and grandchildren are not stuck with our bills and so they too may pursue the American Dream as we have. If we do not get deficit spending under control, future generations will be living in a bankrupt nation where Washington continues to raise your taxes to fuel its out of control spending.

Tax Reform

Our country’s tax code is unfair, punitive and out of control.

The complicated web of loopholes and deductions hinders opportunity for Americans to save for college, retirement or other important quality of life concerns.  Simply put, we want hard working Americans to keep more of the money they earn.

Other Issues

There are certain issues in the public discourse that are very polarizing and while it would be disingenuous for us to proclaim that, as individuals, our members do not have strong beliefs on these matters, we know that oftentimes these issues serve as distractions from the most pressing issues facing our country.

We stand for Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets. To allow an opportunity for these issues to get drowned out is to divert us from The Tea Party Patriots’ mission.

As the Tea Party Patriots believes in fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets, we do not take a position on social issues.  As an organization, we are neither opposed to, or in favor of, issues surrounding these questions, and will not expend our resources on them.

Yet, we will weigh in when we believe that our core values are being compromised by Washington’s action on these matters.  There are other avenues and organizations for our members to more appropriately get involved in these issues.

We encourage Tea Party members to engage with existing socially issue-based organizations of their personal choice.
