The Tulsa Tea Party, is in the process of incorporating as a non-profit organization. As such, we have written a Mission Statement, outlining who we are, and what we stand for. Comments are welcome.








Mission



We are a non-partisan, non-profit, issues based organization united by our shared core values to preserve the Constitutional Rights of WE THE PEOPLE of the United States of America, by limiting government; constraining government spending and taxation; and advancing a free market economy.



Our Core Values --What We Stand For:



  • Limited Government – As our Founding Fathers recognized, restraint of government is necessary to protect the liberties of the people.


  • Fiscal Responsibility – Government at all levels must learn to live within its means. To saddle future generations with the crushing burden of our excess spending is unconscionable.

  • States Rights – The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respective, or to the People.


  • National Sovereignty – We must maintain a strong national defense, effective security for our borders, and sole control over our land and our laws.

  • Personal Responsibility – Liberty is unsustainable without responsibility. Each citizen must take responsibility for the consequences of his or her own actions while respecting the rights and dignity of others.

  • The Rule of Law – Consistent, independent and uniform application of the law is critical to a free and prosperous society.


Code of Conduct -- What We Won’t Stand For:




  • Personal Attacks – We’re debating positions and policies, not demonizing people or groups.


  • Unfounded Rumors – The easily verifiable facts are bad enough. Don’t weaken our position by stretching the truth.

Objective and Goals:



Objective:



  • Educate, motivate, equip and mobilize the citizens for informed participation in public debate and the electoral process

Goals:



  • Conduct public events to allow citizens to gather and speak out on our Core Values

  • Educate the public on our Core Values
