The Brush Country Tea Party want to remind its members and the general public what the BCTP is and what it stands for politically. The core beliefs are simple and readily understandable: The U.S. Government should
1. Follow the U.S. Constitution,
2. Practice sound fiscal responsibility by living within its means,
3. Secure the borders and provide for the defense of the nation, always maintaining its sovereignty, and
4. Follow the free-market principles upon which this nation was founded and oppose government intervention into the operation of private business.
The members of BCTP are politically non-partisan, neither Democrat nor Republican, who will seek out and support any politically conservative candidate who pledges to follow and support the core beliefs of the BCTP as stated above. Thus, its members are politically conservative, everyday, hardworking (and tax-paying) persons who are the essence of good citizens, not the racial bigots as portrayed by radicals who believe that the bigger the government, the better government is, who believe that individual freedoms granted by the U.S. Constitution should be replaced by government control.
If you, the reader of this article, are politically conservative, please join us as a member. Membership dues are $10 per year and can be paid at our annual organizational meeting on Jan. 9.
It is being said by conservatives that the 2012 General Election will be the most important election in our lifetimes. You can be a part of this save-our-nation movement.
The next meeting is Jan. 9, at 7 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in Jourdanton.
