Tea Party Movement Cliffnotes
Short info on TPM
The Tea Party Movement is nothing new for those who didn't know. It similarly derived from the Boston Tea Party of 1773 with basically similar issues just with out the technology and mass media. The current TPM also existed before its official naming. As of 2008, the end of Bush's term in office by Libertarian supporters of Ron Paul. It was officially proclaimed to be founded by Dale Robertson, a military man of the Marines then Navy, and he is the current president. There were unofficial "Tea Party" protest by Trevor Leach with Young Americans for Liberty in New York late January 2009. In response to Gov. Paterson taxes. Then in Seattle,WA by Keli Carender on Presidents Day 2009 when President Obama was going to sign the Stimulus Bill into law. The first official and national Tea Party protest was in February 27, 2009. It was a reply towards the new economic changes from Obama. This was called on by news media and organizers.
The TPM is Populist and has mostly Libertarian beliefs. It also wants to restore Christian and traditional values of the settlers of this nation. Most of the members and followers are Conservative. There are also absolute doctrines according to the founder Dale Robertson: Illegal aliens are here illegally, keep jobs in the US, pro-2nd Amendment, smaller government, English (standard) as main language, traditional family structures, political offices available for average citizens not just the rich and connected, privacy and stop using the people to help big businesses.
Some say the TPM is racist and filled with radical fundamentalist. Most Teabaggers are white and middle class but its in its early stages. Of course like most other organizations and groups there will be some bad apples so this isn't a surprise. The main theme for the TPM is to restore America.
