Our Story

Tea Party Patriots is a grassroots organization made up of over a million Americans who are standing together to send a strong message to our leaders and the rest of our fellow citizens.  Tea Party Patriots is at its heart hundreds of local tea parties throughout the nation that work together and unify around the common themes of Fiscal Responsibility, Limited Government and Free Markets.

The national level organizers of Tea Party Patriots are local organizers themselves who have come together simply to help provide some unity and organization that we can get around as a nation and individual local parties.  All their ideas, plans, decisions and materials are created by and developed alongside hundreds and sometimes thousands of fellow organizers throughout the nation.

Be sure to visit the official home of the National Tea Party Patriots and register today.

The Tea Party Patriots mission is to bring together like-minded individuals, educate and inform others about the core values and to secure public policy and elected officials consistent with those values.

The official website of the nationwide Tea Party Patriots goes into more detail about the movement.  An important note this is not a top down organization but rather a bottom up organization where the direction, message and methodology are driven from the ground up.  The real leaders of the tea party are all the local organizers throughout the country as the most effective tea party work is done at the local level.

The state and national coordinators of Tea Party Patriots exist only to help the local organizers and to facilitate common messages and communication. The national organizers are also local tea party coordinators who were involved from the beginning with the coordination of a nation wide effort of locally organized groups of patriots coming together for a common cause.

The Tea Party Movement was created spontaneously by patriots across the nation who joined together to say “Enough!” and it is those patriots unified around a common message that will help keep the government of America limited and fiscally sound.  Thank you for joining us and we are excited to work together.

The first nationwide effort was on 2/27/09.  While there had been several single tea parties held in prior months, 2/27/2009 was the first nationally coordinated event.  It started in the Top Conservatives on Twitter Action Project Group.  Once everyone heard about Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC, they decided to cease this opportunity and so it begun on 2/20/2009.  Michael Patrick Leahy and a group of volunteers from the TCOT Action Project (including myself – Toni No Bologny) got to work! (Michelle Malkin’s post)

The original group became divided because some felt that the movement was becoming too commercialized.  They were the ones that created all the TCOT state groups (tcotmn.ning.com).  They have since created their own National site http://teapartygrassroots.com/.  Shelly Dawdy, one of the original team members writes about it here on page 24,  in Temerity Magazine.

April 15th would be the first time Minnesota participated in the nationally coordinated events.

more to come…
