Why Young Americans Under 30 Should Look to the Tea Party as Their Answer for a Bright Future

This is a post I wrote that ran today on Broadside Books.

Limited Government – to preserve and protect

“We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain, unalienable rights.” When those words were written, there were certain things  that everyone knew were rights because they were obvious. But today everything is being called a “right” and, as time goes on, more and more [...]

Then, if that’s the case, our critics contend it’s only logical that the more [...]

Limited Government – what does that mean?

When the Tea Parties say they want limited or smaller government, many of our critics try to make it sound like we are against any form of government control. If that was true then the Tea party would be advocating anarchy. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. What we want is Constitutional government. [...]

Worth Savoring

Yesterday's victory was tremendous, and one we should savor. The hard work is still ahead of us, of course. But I think all of the supporters of the Richmond Tea Party and supporters of Tea Party / Patriot / 9/12 groups across Virginia truly earned the following comments taken from this morning's Richmond Times-Dispatch editorial: [...]

Five Things the New Republican Majority Must Do…and Won’t

1. Implement Constitutional Adherence. The list of possibilities here in endless, isn't it? 2. Implement Limited Government. For starters, someone can show me where in the Constitution it says that taxpayers are supposed to bail out banks. If no one can, then maybe we can consider NOT BAILING THEM OUT. 3. Implement Fiscal Restraint. Refuse [...]

It depends who you ask. If you ask the GOP leadership, "we're all the Tea Party..." Read about it here. To excerpt: House Republican leader John Boehner says: "There really is no difference between what Republicans believe in and what the Tea Party activists believe in." Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele says: "If I [...]
