Let us know what you think, and let’s consider together whether this is a group with which to affiliate. What say you!??
On 4/8/10 formation of the National TEA Party Federation was announced. Link Here for the new website. Stay tuned – the National Federation Tea Party includes groups like the Tea Party Express, which is currently on a 42-city bus tour across the country, as well as Tea Party Nation, ResistNet, Constitutional TEA Party and American Grassroots Coalition. But the conservative movement, which has prided itself on its refusal to formally merge with the Republican Party, refuted claims that the tea party seeks to form its own political party. “That would be political suicide,” Mark Williams, chairman of Tea Party Express, told FoxNews.com. “America is a two party system and to create a third party is to reinvent the wheel. This federation was formed simply as a rapid response to put out brushfires in the mainstream media.” The federation also includes several conservative “affiliate groups” like Americans for Prosperity, American for Tax Reform, FreedomWorks and Citizens Unite
It will enable us to move quickly and in unison as conditions warrant.
This is a quote from Tea Party Nation: “The National Tea Party Federation is a broad coalition ofnational and regional Tea Party groups that have come together toallow for clarity of message, rapid response to media misinformation while continuing to build the brand equity of the Tea Party movement at the local and regional level. The NTPF will act in unison without a central leadership to collaborate to promote the movement’s core principles of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets.”
Thanks for your patience – we’re all learning about this new development!
