Tea Party website

The website I have looked at is that of the Tea Party Patriots. The website allows members to post comments and discuss governmental issues. The website is heavily critical of Obama with such slogans as 'Robama Hood' because they are against heavy taxation and see Obama as taking their money. The core values expressed on the website are:
  1. fiscal responsibility
  2. Constitutionally limited government
  3. free market
They are after a country where liberty and freedom are still of paramount importance. As the following philosophy implies, the tea party want to revert back to a time where the law was based heavily on the Constitution and the ideas of the founders. They use examples from the constitution and the declaration of independence to validate their own core values and to create a sense of old American idealism which encourages support.

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.
