Americans-For-LibertyOur name is Americans for Liberty...a Tea Party Initiative. You might well ask what that signifies.
The inspiration for our founding was born in the thousands of Tea Party events that sprung up during the 2009 April tax season.
These events occurred spontaneously across America in response to the turmoil of the initial days of the Obama Administration when radical change was imposed upon us the citizens of this country without permitting us any chance to engage in dialogue about this change or to seek redress against the current administration and the statist philosophy that is the clear motivation behind this change.
The Tea Parties were part protest, part social gathering and yet were all inspired by the common sentiment that enough is enough. The tea parties sprouted, grew, modified, re-formed, split into two, sent out shoots, combined into one and cross-bred many times forming numerous combination and hybrids. Many original tea party groups changed their name, or members of these groups formed new groups with different names and different emphases. These combination yielded many permutations, many groups, and a great variety of efforts. We and most likely they still, however take the Tea Party movement as the original inspiration for this unprecedented phenomenon.
Tea Party Initiative means we do things in the spirit of the tea parties. While it is fashionable for citizens to complain about their government, it is not until recent times that average citizens have taken to assembling in public places with complete strangers in order to protest the current state of affairs and alter the dangerous and frightening course our government has embarked upon.
It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds~Samuel Adams
While these efforts have been slow to develop, the growth of the Tea Party movement has had a historic and profound effect upon the American policy. While Enough is Enough might have been the sentiment of those participants in the nascent tea party movement, it might well be said that the new sentiment is We are here to stay. No longer will we American citizens eschew the important business of governing our republic; nor will we continue to yield our civic responsibility to others. To do so will only encourage and permit men and women of lesser character to violate our freedoms.
As a tea party initiative, we will utilize the democratic methods of organizing, educating, campaigning, and balloting in order to effect the changes we believe in. There are those in public life whom we believe are scoundrels seeking to domineer the honest and hardworking members of our government.
We reject those beliefs not in harmony with the basic principles which
form the foundation of our American republic and we strive to restore
our nation to these founding principles.
mission of Americans for Liberty... a Tea Party Initiative, is to
protect and defend the Declaration of Independence, the
all Founding Documents.
We maintain that these
timeless principles ensure *Individual Rights * Limited
Fiscal Responsibility and * Free Markets.
We are dedicated to promoting these principles through outreach, education and political activism.
With a Firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes & our Sacred Honor.
