The Tea Party Movement–Purpose and Symbols

Written by James Ostrowski on April 7, 2009 – 9:53 am -

In my view, the purpose of the tea party movement is to restore the old Republic.

Any other goal would not be worth my effort nor yours and would fail anyway.

And we need our own symbols.

How does flying the 50-star flag symbolize our movement? It doesn’t. That’s why we propose the Betsy Ross flag as our symbol.

How does singing the national anthem symbolize our movement? It doesn’t. That’s why we propose we use My Country Tis of Thee as the Republican Anthem.

And let’s pledge allegiance to principles, not cloth.

The Founders did not create an indivisible union, Lincoln did, and that act led directly to the big government we suffer under today.

Let’s pledge allegiance to the ideas that Jefferson and Washington fought for.

I pledge allegiance to the principles of the American Revolution, stated by Jefferson, and for which the Minute Men and Washington’s Army fought: that government’s only purpose is to protect our natural rights to life, liberty, and property; that any government that does “more” than protect our natural rights must thereby violate those same rights and become a tyranny that the people have the right to alter or abolish. I pledge to resist that tyranny by peaceful means if at all possible.

    Why, since it’s inception, has the tea party had revolving goals? It’s because they really don’t have a purpose. They just want to bitch that a Democrat is in office. The Tea Party Movement is
    hypocracy at it’s finest.
    Reps and Dems – same shit different pile

    Wrong, it’s because there is no one leader and various people try to superimpose their vision on the rest. It started under Bush, BTW.

    All I can do is state my own view of what it’s all about which I did in the book Direct Ciizen Action.
