The Tea Party

Our Philosophy
Tea Party Patriots as an organization believes in the Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets. Tea Party Patriots, Inc. is a non-partisan grassroots organization of individuals united by our core values derived from the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill Of Rights as explained in the Federalist Papers. We recognize and support the strength of grassroots organization powered by activism and civic responsibility at a local level. We hold that the United States is a republic conceived by its architects as a nation whose people were granted "unalienable rights" by our Creator. Chiefly among these are the rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The Tea Party Patriots stand with our founders, as heirs to the republic, to claim our rights and duties which preserve their legacy and our own. We hold, as did the founders, that there exists an inherent benefit to our country when private property and prosperity are secured by natural law and the rights of the individual.

I found this on the Official Home of the American Tea Party Movement and too me it shows how obsessed they are with returning America to how it was to begin with. It talks of the ‘architects’ and ‘founders’ of America in a way that almost suggests they would agree with The Tea Party’s beliefs. They also mention God or the ‘creator’ in the Philosophy. Obviously with America being so religiously orientated this holds sway there, were in other countries it would not. God, Immigration and the Government are bought up frequently in the news articles and forum posts that swamp their home page. This heavy use of media is in my opinion used to provide the impression that there are many, many people in America with the same beliefs, thereby making it more popular then it necessarily is. And therefore attracting more followers.
