Tea Party Task


The site I chose is the Tea Party Movement Platform.

It is a basic website that outlines the main aims and beliefs on the Tea Party:
Eliminate Excessive Taxes
Eliminate the National Debt
Eliminate Deficit Spending
Protect Free Markets
Abide by the Constitution of the United States
Promote Civic Responsibility
Reduce the Overall Size of Government
Believe in the People
Avoid the Pitfalls of Politics
Maintain Local Independence
It explains each of these in more details.

It also has a lot of quotes by famous figures in American history such as Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. These ties in to how the Tea Party believe that by looking back into their history and reverting to how the founding fathers believed Americans should be is the way that all their problems can be solved.
