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.
