WELCOME TO THE JACKSON HOLE TEA PARTY WEBSITE. WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US TO KEEP AMERICA FREE AND PROSPEROUS!

WHO WE ARE

The Jackson Hole Tea Party is a grass roots movement dedicated to preserving the values and principles entrusted to United States citizens by our Founding Fathers through the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. We are not a "political party" which fields a slate of candidates for election, and we are not affiliated with any political party. We do try to achieve the election of candidates, of any political party, whose positions and values are consistent with our Core Values (defined below). Our membership is open to all citizens who share our Mission and Core Values. We believe in America and the American people. We are your neighbors, friends, and people in your congregation who work hard, sacrifice and try to play by the rules. We come from every walk of life. Most are parents and many are veterans who have fought to give other people in faraway lands what our government is rapidly taking away from us - our freedoms, our opportunities, our pursuit of happiness. We are frustrated with our government and we have been quiet too long. Please, STAND WITH US. Together our voices will be heard! The fight for FREEDOM starts with YOUR PERSONAL COMMITTMENT TO DO SOMETHING!

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three Core Values. Education is of special interest to us, because we believe an informed public will embrace and support these Core Values.

CORE VALUES

CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED GOVERNMENT

The basic role of the federal government is to preserve and protect the freedom and security of our citizenry. As our Founding Fathers recognized, restraint of government is necessary to protect the liberties of the people. American government derives its powers from the governed and must remain fully compliant with the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, as written.

FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY

Government at all levels must learn to live within its means and be structured and staffed efficiently in order to achieve its constitutionally sanctioned role and responsibilities. Budgets and spending must reflect prudent fiscal responsibility and they must not encumber future generations with current financial obligations. Tax decisions should primarily promote economic stability, growth and prosperity. Tax policy should be clear and simple. Individual initiative and entrepreneurial spirit should be encouraged.

FREE MARKETS

The Founding Fathers believed that personal and economic freedom were indivisible, as do we. People must be free to succeed or fail based on their own merit and performance. In this light, government policy must be guided by free market principles and avoid intrusive intervention and regulation, including action specifically intended to confiscate and redistribute citizens' wealth.
