DECLARATION OF TEA PARTY INDEPENDENCE
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.
