At the origin of America, our Founding Fathers built this country on 28 powerful principles. These principles were culled from all over the world and from centuries of great thinkers. The original 28 principles are in print in The Five Thousand Year Leap. These principles have been distilled down to the 9 basic principles.
The formation of Constitutional TEA Party is based on these principles. The TEA parties held from coast-to-coast are based on these principles of our Founding Fathers.
So, how do we show America what’s really behind the curtain? Read The 9 Principles. If you believe in at least seven of them, then we have something in common. Join with us at Constitutional TEA Party to spread these principles, one person at a time.
1. America Is Good.
2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”
from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
Honesty“I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.”
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.”
5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.”
6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.”
7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.”
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.”
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.”

Who "WE THE PEOPLE" Are
We created this website for "We The People". For those of us who have given up the sofa, for taking up a voice. For "We The People" asking ourselves, What is happening to America? Maybe your even asking yourself, Is this America?
Tell me, are you going to speak up for the principles that our Founding Fathers have given us, or will you be couch-potato?
Ask yourself, "What if Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Paine and on and on would have let others do the fighting for freedom, where would we be today?".
We are here to educate, organize and support others who believe the same as we do. For those who want to be "Americans". There is no longer room for partisan politics.
We are not going to share all the same principles, or even vote the same polititians in office. That's OK! We are not all of one political party, that's OK too. We are ALL AMERICANS.
We believe in God, Country, Family and we apologize to nobody for being Americans. We are giving to others because we want to give. We were founded on christian principles, and no man should force God out of our lives or country.
We are here to SHARE our thoughts, and if you share our feelings then please tell others how you feel and talk with them about what is going on in the country. Will they all agree with you? NO! But it will make them think about being partison or American. Remind them of how they felt the day after 9/11 and I'll bet they felt American and a proud one at that.
Basically, here is what we want to see for America. Do you remember how you felt on September 12, 2001? Were you a Republican or a Democrat? I'll bet you were an American, and you didn't even think about being a Republican or Democrat. It felt great - didn't it?
That's what we want to recreate today and every day henceforth.
Lets together, inform Washington that we hired them to represent us, and we will fire them if they don't.
