TPP Statement on Tea Party Political Party

TPP Statement on Tea Party Political Party

Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriots,

There is much talk of the formation of a third political party based on the tea party movement. In Florida, a Democratic operative with absolutely no connection to the tea party movement has filed papers to form a third party called the Florida Tea Party. He has issued legal threats against local tea parties demanding that they cease using the name "Florida Tea Party."

Tea Party Patriots is issuing this statement in order to make it clear that we are not associated with this, or any attempts to form a third party. Additionally, we believe that such efforts are unproductive and unwise at this time. The history of third party movements in this country is one of division and defeat. We believe that it is instead time for all Americans to rise up and demand appropriate reform within their own parties. The mechanisms exist for citizens to participate in their parties, and to drive their parties in the right direction.


The Tea Party Patriots encourage all citizens to get involved in the party process, and to reshape their parties into something in which they may once again believe. This country does not belong to any one party, nor does it belong to the career politicians. This country belongs to the citizens. As Benjamin Franklin once said, "We have given you a republic madam, if you can keep it." The founders knew that it would be our sacred obligation as citizens to get involved, and to work hard to hold on to this great nation. We have much work to do, and future generations will look back in judgment. We hope you will join us in preserving the republic.




You are the heart and soul of the Tea Party Movement. Thank you for promoting the causes of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets with us!

Your Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Team,
Debbie Dooley, Mike Gaske, Kellen Giuda, Ryan Hecker, Jenny Beth Martin, Mark Meckler, Sally Oljar, Diana Reimer, Billie Tucker, and Dawn Wildman

RAT Party playing more political games. Third party needs to take back the Grand Old Party and dispense with ALL RINOS. Do not hand the Presidency to another RAT like we did in 1992.

Exactly! That's the plan!

I suspect some of the posts I've seen in this forum trying to keep conservatives distant from the Republican Party have been posted by disrupters.

Dems playing games again as usual, trying to split the tea-partiers and the GOP too if they can do it.

“I suspect some of the posts I’ve seen in this forum trying to keep conservatives distant from the Republican Party have been posted by disrupters.”

Paid to:

1. Adopt a strong personna, and enocurage divisive themes, and

2. Watch for and report extremes, of racism, threats of violence, etc.

EXACTLY!

Splitting the conservative small government vote in 1992 with the “Reform Party” gave us 8 years of Bill Clinton.

If we are divided, as the left wing socialists want us to be we lose.

If we unite and take back the GOP..we win!

Not all of “us” have either an interest in forming a new political party nor taking over an existing one. I can’t nor wouldn’t ever speak for others, but I am interested in ending all influence any political party has on our political process. To my way of thinking it is political party’s that have brought us to the brink of totally loosing what is left of our Republic in the first place.

A check of profiles and length of time here at FR should explain who is and who isn't a disruptor. Personally, and I stress personally, I find nearly as much fault with the Republican Party as I do the Democrat Party.

Until we, the citizens of this once great Republic, can find a way to return to what our Founding Fathers intended we won't have a hope. As long as Political Party's dictate for whom we can vote into office they (the party) will control our destiny!

Good luck with taking back the GOP from wherever it went! Seriously, I am not on a crusade. I simply have over time and with study came to the conclusion, as George Washington tried to warn us about, that the Party system in this Republic is destroying it and I won't play their games any longer.

Like it or not we’ve had a two party system since even Washington’s time and it’s not going to change. I think what we conservatives need to to is take back the party from the leaders who got way to cozy in Washington and once again make it a Reaganite party. That’s the only way we can reach our policy goals and take the country back from the moonbats in charge now.
