Tea Party Patriot statement on violence & intimidation..

First and foremost, Tea Party Patriots has a zero tolerance policy against violence or bigotry from Democrats, Republicans or Independents, and expects this standard to be applied equally to all. The values of Tea Party Patriots are clearly opposed to those who choose this path. By the same token, public anger at Congress is legitimate and warranted. Congress is not listening to the American people and their complaints. Sadly today, the majority in Congress continue to ignore and downplay the clearly expressed feelings of the majority of the American people. According to a CBS poll on March 24th, a full 62% of the American public wants this bill challenged. It is time for Congress to listen to the American people and act accordingly. Meanwhile, Tea Party Patriots will continue to provide constructive means for the American people to make their voices heard.

March 16th to DC

To All Tea Party Groups, 9.12 Groups and other Organizations,

I am writing this email to all of you in the hopes we can all come together as one. United in the purpose of saving our country and make a final stand against the liberals in congress.
I have spoken to many people throughout the day, and the one tactic we have all agreed, and that is we must go to Washington. Not as a mass protest in the streets, but as a mass of citizens converging on every liberal congressional office. Lines upon lines of citizens waiting to see congressmen. Not patriots, not 9.12 people, not as an organization, but as Americans. Citizens of all walks of life, of all colors, from every corner of the country. Lines and lines of men and women, young and old standing shoulder to shoulder.

There has been much made about reconciliation, but the fight right now is in the House. If the Senate Bill passes without changes this battle is lost. Make no mistake about this simple fact. If we lose this battle, not only will our country lose, our children lose, and we will lose as a movement. It is time we put differences aside for one or two days and unite to defeat this bill.

I want your input and I want others to see your input. That is why all emails tonight are exposed. Most of the conversations today focused on March 16th as a good day as all members of congress will be in town. This will give us time to get emails to all members of our groups. Arrange buses if needed, book flights, and find hotel rooms. We can do this in one day or two. I need your input.

We can send emails, make phone calls, have candle light vigils, but nothing beats a face to face with thousands. Nothing would have an impact like every congressman and woman walking by long lines of Americans standing in their halls.

We need no signs, we need not wear a single group shirt. We just come, and come, and come. We come as Americans and we leave victorious.

Please let me know if you are willing to make this stand.

For much of its history, the United States has been a land of prosperity and liberty. Sound policies such as fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and a belief in the free market have safeguarded this condition.

In recent years, however, Congress, the White House, the Federal Reserve Board, and the court system have replaced those practices with profligate government spending and expansion of the government power beyond what is constitutionally permissible via government control of banks, the auto industry, and other large sectors of the economy.

This course, if not reversed, can only lead to economic collapse and tyranny.

Therefore, Individuals acting through the Tea Party movement seek to reinstate policies which are proven to safeguard liberty and prosperity for all. We will organize, demonstrate and vote until this restoration has been achieved. We will stay focused on this goal and remain INDEPENDENT from any persons or political parties who seek to distract us from this end.

And for the support of this Declaration, we the Undersigned mutually pledge to each other our tireless Effort, our sense of Urgency, and a trust in the power of our combined Voices.

More on this here, Matt has kindly adopted my idea of printing this out and having people sign it to display at events or in public places.
