the la & santa monica tea party - What we stand for
The LA and Santa Monica Tea Party is fighting to restore the Founding Fathers’ view of the proper role of government: that the purpose of government is not to exercise control over our lives for the “public good,” but to protect our rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness.
We are fighting for a return to Constitutional government; for the rediscovery of individual responsibility and an end to the entitlement culture. We are protesting a government that is rapidly strangling freedom, with endless bailouts, mounting regulations, reckless spending, and crippling taxes.
We believe that the only economic system consistent with freedom is capitalism. It was massive government intervention, not capitalism, that led to today’s economic crisis. We believe that only by embracing the free market system can we truly resist the government’s assault on freedom, and return the country to liberty and prosperity.
