Wk 6 The Tea Party Movement

The following website - is an example of a website for the Tea Party movement as it encompasses all of the core values of its followers that inhabit the historic values of the republic. The website continuously goes on to repeat itself by saying that it is a 'grassroots movement' and focuses on the founders of the movement known as the Boston Tea Party which were the "brave souls" who dared to defy and challenge the government of 1773.

Its main core values and beliefs are listed below;

1. Illegal aliens are here illegally.
2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable.
3. A strong military is essential.
4. Special interests must be eliminated.
5. Gun ownership is sacred.
6. Government must be downsized.
7. The national budget must be balanced.
8. Deficit spending must end.
9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal.
10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must.
11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory.
12. Political offices must be available to average citizens.
13. Intrusive government must be stopped.
14. English as our core language is required.
15. Traditional family values are encouraged.

The followers of the Tea Party believe that the fate of its nation is in the hands of the true patriot and try to keep the initial Boston Tea Party's issues which challenges the security, sovereignty, or domestic tranquility of America and aim to tackle central government by limiting its control over its citizens. They fully believe in the statement of "we the people rule" and aim to keep alive the voice of freedom.
