1. What are the goals of your Tea Party or Group?
2. Have you met any of those goals?
3. What will it take to meet those goals?
4. Are you in this for our Republic or a wage or self status?
5. What are your true desires for our republic?
6. Ask questions you have of OUR grassroots movement.
7. What does Conservatism mean to you?
8. What does our constitution mean to you?
If the Tea Party really do believe that the Constitution is the backbone of our Republic and the FEDS and State governements should have to obey both the letter and spirit of the document, then they would be staunchly supporting and defending the following portion against all enemies foreign and domestic by requiring that the President prove his Constitutional eligibility to serve in the office of President of the United States and as Commannder-in-Chief of America's Armed Forces.
Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution requires that:
No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;
Note the conjunction "or" there... this suggests that only a "natural born Citizen" shall be eligible for the Office of President, while a "Citizen of the United States", at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution can also be eligible to the office of President.
However, a "Citizen of the United States" born after the adoption of the Constitution, would not be eligible to the Office of the President.
Therefore, all "natural born Citizens" are eligible to the Office of the President, while only "Citizens of the United States" who are "natural born Citizens" are eligible to the Office of the President.
Social conservatism is as important as fiscal conservatism, the Tea Party needs to be both
Please excuse me, I see someone is misinformed.
Let us start at the beginning, the founding of the State and this Nation.
James Kent on American law 1832, Of the Rights of Person, “The inhabitance of Massachusetts, in their infancy of their establishments, declared by law that the free enjoyment of the liberties which humanity, civility, and Christianity called for, was due to every man in his place and proportion, and ever had been, and ever would be, the tranquility and stability of the commonwealth.”
Everyone, each individual in his or her place and proportion is the tranquility and stability of the commonwealth, to the big government types this would seem to be an absurdity. The big government types will tell you it is the job of government to put the people in their place or we would have anarchy. That would be true if you follow the doctrine we declared independence from, this is American Exceptionalism. We are not them, we absolved all allegiance and all political connection from that system, so stated in the Declaration of Independence.
Now what, we kicked out the ruling class, heck that’s not working so lets do the opposite, but how. It is declared by law in our State Constitution as a “duty of all” “to worship the Supreme Being, the great Creator and Preserver of the universe.” That the “order and preservation of civil government, essentially depend upon piety, religion and morality.” President George Washington, “No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States…. His divine blessing may be equally conspicuous in the enlarged views, the temperate consultations, and the wise measures on which the success of this Government must depend.” President Lincoln, Gettysburg address, “This nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
Hold on, I know what comes next is some diatribe over Christianity, perversion of some narrow scripture and ridicule, and they are all wrong. The Constitution has a broad definition of religion as any moral code, “Individual Conscience,” the protection thereof and not any specific. The courts have ruled that atheism is the same as a religion under the broad scope of religion as defined by our Constitution, as any moral sense of right and wrong. John Jay rejoiced, "Security under our constitution is given to the rights of conscience." Thomas Jefferson, "It is inconsistent with the spirit of our laws and Constitution to force tender consciences." James Madison affirmed, "Government is instituted to protect property of every sort - conscience is the most sacred of all property."
Social Conservative, some would like you to believe that social values are not that important. I hear it all the time in the Tea Party that we should be Fiscal Conservatives and not Social Conservative, it is too divisive. Simply stated, you cannot and must not separate the two because the two are interdependent. Liberties, humanity, civility, tranquility and stability create fiscal determination, which is dependent on Social Conservatism.
What are the goals you have met?
How have we made a difference?
How are we a Conservative Constitutionalist?
What are the results of the attempts to clean up the Rep. Party?
Have we 'killed' the unconstitutional bills?
1- To open a dialog with like-minded activist citizens and to be actively engaged in the battlefield of ideas.
2- It's a never ending process.
3- Prayer, persistance, dedication, education, patience.
4- For our childrens future and the preservation of the Republic.
5- That it be populated with peace-loving citizens devoted to its founding principles.
6- Are YOU seeking alliances with like-minded groups in every State and community?
7- To have a lifestyle and personal belief system in harmony the Creator God, and the best interests of my fellow man.
8- It is the only system of government ever devised by God-fearing men intended to curtail man's lust for power and maximize individual liberty.
1. Has it happened and what is the results so far?
2. "it's a never ending process" - Does that give us no hope?
3. Any results yet?If so, what?
4. Thank you!
5. Thank you Patriot!
8. Amen - True Liberty
1. The Tea Party is a new force.
2. It represents the average person no matter what political party they have been with.
3. We have gotten people elected who know what they must get done. That in it's self is a great accomplishment.
4. Until we get more people in public offices, we will have to do our best to undermine the radical judges and slowly lever them out of office.
5. Our ultimate goal is full restoration of the Constitution, balanced budgets and secure borders!
Every election we win with new blood, the closer we get to the goal.
Well said KIM
if this agenda 21 is pushed down our throats we can say good bye to this country, This president has already said in one of his speeches that the constitution was meant for times long past and that it should be rewritten and many things things left out (like the 2nd amendment) none of the dems want the 2nd around and they figure the only way to get rid of it is to rewrite the constitution in their image and for what they want for the people.
