Tea Party Declaration of Independence

It's been said by many, incorrectly, that the Tea Party movement is a pawn of the Republican Party. Those who have said this, and think this - ordinary folks, pundits and politicians - could not be more mistaken. We've said this all along, we Tea Partiers: We're sick of Big Government and Big Spending, regardless of which party perpetuates those evils. The Tea Party movement, still fractured, still trying to find a stable point on which to orbit, may have moved a step closer to a codified manifesto with this "Declaration of Tea Party Independence." Some excerpts, below, and related articles following the excerpts. I. As the course of human events winds its way through History, it has found some paths lead to Tyranny and some to Liberty. In seeking a path to Liberty, a great and powerful movement is now rising from every corner of our land. Created by the Will of the American People, it rejects unconstitutional domination by the Government that is supposed to be its servant. This movement has arisen, in large part, because our elected officials have failed us. Another excerpt: Therefore, Individuals acting through the Tea Party Movement, seek to restore the 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.
