To preserve freedom through restoring virtue to our culture. Promoting, preserving, and protecting the inalienable rights endowed by the Creator and expressly written and implied in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, and the Wisconsin Constitution. We will cooperate and network with like-minded groups throughout the State of Wisconsin and the United States of America regarding principles and values which we have in common for the purpose of achieving common goals. We will seek out and elect honorable leaders to defend the Constitution: limiting government so that citizens may follow the dictates of their conscience before God.
The following statement was a recommendation by Karen Mueller – Constitutional Lawyer. While this statement was to drawn-out for our official mission statement, it does expresses in more detail the ideals of the TEA Party. Our constitutional platform and how we stand before the God of the Universe, not under the strong arm of man.
It is our Mission to protect, preserve and uphold the core principles and natural rights expressed in the Declaration of Independence, the U. S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights which the founding fathers believed to be inspired by the Creator and God of the Universe, who authored free will and liberty for all mankind. These documents, together, became the foundational pillars of this Republic and reserved all rights not enumerated by the federal constitution unto the individual states; therefore, we believe in and will work towards a limited federal government as was envisioned by the founders.
We adhere to the principles of Federalism which support and defend states rights. We affirm the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 which was created immediately after the ratification of the U. S. Constitution and provided the basis for the formation of five future states, the State of Wisconsin being one of them and gave rights secured to the original citizens of the United States, to the future citizens of Wisconsin, for all time. From this Northwest Ordinance, the Wisconsin Constitution was legally and constitutionally derived. Therefore, we will protect, preserve and uphold the Wisconsin Constitution which also acknowledges God, as the author of our liberty and also secures our individual natural rights. We will seek to modify the Wisconsin Constitution, when deemed necessary, to secure more rights unto the citizens of the State of Wisconsin than re preserved by the U. S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
We will stand and take actions necessary to preserve and protect the rights proclaimed and secured by the 1st Amendment of the U. S. Constitution and Article 1, section 18 of the Wisconsin Constitution. This includes each individual’s right of conscience to freely worship God or to reject Him and His truths and each individual’s right to freely express their faith or lack of faith without fear of censorship or punishment by the government or by private citizens through unconstitutional laws enacted by the government.
We will stand and take actions necessary to also preserve and protect the other rights secured by the 1st Amendment including freedom of speech and the right to assemble without being accosted or arrested by any arm of the government.
We will stand and take actions necessary to preserve and protect the rights proclaimed and secured by the 2nd Amendment to the U. S. Constitution and Article 1, section 25 of the Wisconsin Constitution which includes the right to bear arms. We will not allow the right to bear arms to be infringed because this right of self-defense protects the individual’s rights found in the 1st Amendment. The Founding Fathers secured this right in the Bill of rights because they understood the process of tyranny and sought to protect future generations from mass disarmament of its people through guile and false promises of peace and safety. The 2nd Amendment also serves as a reminder to future generations that all other individual rights are at risk of being taken away by a tyrannical government if its citizens are disarmed.
We will stand and take actions necessary to preserve and protect the rights proclaimed and secured by the 4th Amendment.
We define “actions necessary” to include, but not limited to, the education and promotion of these principles to fellow citizens of all ages residing within the borders of the State of Wisconsin. We will also seek out and put forth candidates for public office who will uphold these principles. Finally, “actions necessary” will always include holding governmental servants accountable at the ballot box for their failure to uphold their oaths of office to uphold the U. S. Constitution and the Wisconsin State Constitution. When necessary, we will seek removal of government servants at all levels of government whose actions by clear and convincing evidence have subverted the principles found in the U. S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, or the Wisconsin State Constitution.
We will cooperate and network with like-minded groups throughout the State of Wisconsin and the United States of America regarding principles and values which we have in common for the purpose of achieving common goals.
Nothing in this Mission Statement is intended to limit the scope of our interest in preserving all rights expressly written and implied in the Declaration of Independence, the U. S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Wisconsin State Constitution.
