The tea party is not a political party. It is more of a grassroots activist group that holds rallies around causes and often supports Republicans to office. This is different than the Constitution Party. We are a real, actual political party acknowledged and registered with both the national FEC and the state election board. We hold conventions and can nominate and elect candidates to office. In regards to total national registered voters nationwide, we are the third-largest political party in the U.S. and were officially established as a political party in 1992.
One of the first questions people ask us is why do we need the Constitution Party if we already have two parties? An overwhelming majority of our elected officials have routinely ignored constitutional limits placed on their power. As a result, there are now very few areas where government is not involved in our lives. Both major parties, in spite of their rhetoric, have routinely ignored the limits put in place by our Founding Fathers in the U.S. Constitution.
This has been evident in the voting records of both major parties. Neither has stopped the funding of unconstitutional agencies and programs. Neither has stopped the unconstitutional wars and foreign aid. And neither has closed our borders and ended the government handouts to illegal immigrants.
A recently Gall up poll reported that 52 percent of Republicans are ready for a third party. So yes, Brian, it is time for a third party that will turn this country back around to the principals of our Founding Fathers! But that party is not the tea party, which will more than likely lead you right back to the Republican Party. It is time for the Constitution Party!
