The North Fulton and Friends Tea Party is a grassroots group of citizens who have joined fellow tea party patriots in 50 states across the nation to tell our elected officials that there is too much government waste and bureaucracy. It is time to get back to the basics designed by our Founding Fathers and the Constitution. We want politicians in Washington to listen to "We the People" who elected them. We want less government and more fiscal responsibility. People in 800 cities across the country appeared at rallies starting on tax day, April 15, and continue to rally. "We the People" unite in one voice to exercise our right to express our love for country, our love for freedom, and our love for liberty. We must restore the government of the people, by the people and for the people.
We agree with the Tea Party Patriots in their statement regarding creating a "third party" in the upcoming elections:
"Tea Party Patriots is issuing this statement in order to make
it clear that we are not associated with any attempts to form a third party.
Additionally, we believe that such efforts are unproductive and unwise at this
time. The history of third party movements in this country is one of division
and defeat. We believe that it is instead time for all Americans to rise up and
demand appropriate reform within their own parties. The mechanisms exist for
citizens to participate in their parties, and to drive their parties in the
The Tea Party Patriots encourage all citizens to get involved
in the party process, and to reshape their parties into something in which they
may once again believe. This country does not belong to any one party, nor does
it belong to the career politicians. This country belongs to the citizens. As
Benjamin Franklin once said, "We have given you a republic madam, if you can
keep it." The founders knew that it would be our sacred obligation as citizens
to get involved, and to work hard to hold on to this great nation. We have much
work to do, and future generations will look back in judgment. We hope you will
join us in preserving the republic."
We are "We the People."
