The Tea Party is a group of people who say they are taxed enough already and people who are concerned about our government’s assault on faith, freedom, and moral values. When we need funds to put an advertisement in the papers, to pay for the use of Bond Park, Performance Park, our website (TEALIBERTY.COM), or an ad in the Estes Park website.we pass a hat. Most everyone throws $20 or so. We don’t take money from any other group or organization. We then decide why, when, where we need to meet. We set up the chairs and clean up after ourselves. We feel it is our responsibility to act. This is our town, our state, and our country.
Other solutions we talk about are getting rid of the entitlement mentality, encouraging others to be actors (not spectators) in our towns, state and country, because We the People are responsible for our government. We must choose carefully who we want to run for our legislatures. We ask them to come and tell us what are their values and goals.. We, the Tea Party, cannot support any candidate, but we can sure investigate their standards and then support them individually if we approve of them.
Each one of us makes it his duty to vote . We don’t want to be victims of circumstances. We also pass out flyers to alert our neighbors to pending problems in the townat the same time we urge everyone to go out and vote his own conscience. We are very aware that the present administration is intent on getting rid of not only the U.S., but entire Western Civilization.
We don’t want to leave our children a country without liberty run by a lot of Harvard Elitists. We want our children and grand children to have the same advantages that we have had.
