Ordinary Citizens Reclaiming America's Founding Principles.
As part of the grassroots America movement,
Philadelphia Tea Party Patriots mission is three fold: 1) Attract and
Organize. 2) Inform and Educate. 3) Motivate and Mobilize. In doing so, we encourage fellow citizens to press toward the mark of securing public policy consistent with our core values; Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government; Free Market Economics. As individuals
of like-mind, we will unify and we will exercise, through all peaceful and legal means
available to us, our civic responsibility to effect the election of local, state, and
federal candidates who espouse our core values.
FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY means not overspending, and not burdening our children and grandchildren with our bills. In the words of Thomas Jefferson: “the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity [is] swindling futurity on a large scale.” A more fiscally responsible government will take fewer taxes from our paychecks.
CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED GOVERNMENT means power resides with the people and not with the government. Governing should be done at the most local level possible where it can be held accountable. America’s founders believed that government power should be limited, enumerated, and constrained by our Constitution. Philadelphia Tea Party Patriots agree. The American people make this country great, not our government.
