By Michael D. HickeyPublished September 10, 2018 08:00:00More than five decades ago, the tea party was a fringe political movement in the U.S. and around the world.
It was not a political movement with a real agenda.
The movement was not even an ideological movement, and the name it came up with to describe itself—the tea party—was not a politically charged one at all.
Its leaders were not ideologically extreme; they were conservative in outlook.
They were moderate.
They did not advocate extreme political views.
In fact, some of the people they endorsed, such as former Rep. Michele Bachmann, are now leading presidential candidates in their respective parties.
The movement was a political group that had a certain level of success at the ballot box, and it was also an economic one.
But it was not an ideology, and neither was the Tea party.
The Tea Party began as an ideological group of anti-government activists, mostly from Southern states, who were concerned about the welfare state.
They had a clear agenda: the federal government should not be involved in all aspects of the economy, including health care, education and welfare.
It should not take any money from the federal treasury to pay for health care.
It shouldn’t allow anyone to benefit from a welfare program.
And the Tea parties members were very concerned about this.
They believed that the federal Government had become a corrupt force that was not working for the American people.
The Tea party did not endorse any specific candidate, but rather a broad array of candidates.
At the time, most Americans were either conservative or moderate.
Today, many Americans are either moderate or conservative, but the Tea movement is very different from the more radical fringe parties of today.
The tea party is different because it started as a political party.
Tea parties are not political organizations; they are not partisan organizations; and they are far more like other political movements, such in Europe, Canada and the U, than they are like any other political movement.
The tea party started out as a loose collection of activists and was not very organized.
But over time, the group became more and more organized.
The group began by having a very limited membership of people who wanted to oppose the government.
This allowed the group to expand rapidly.
By the end of the 1970s, the Tea Partiers had developed a substantial following.
As they gained more and the political winds shifted, the number of tea party supporters increased.
Today the Tea partiers are the largest political force in the country, and their popularity is growing.
But as a movement, the political movement has a very defined set of principles and a very specific set of objectives.
And those principles are not always the same.
The most common political principles of the tea partiers have always been:1.
The government should take care of the common good.2.
The federal government must be limited in its spending.3.
The tax system must be fair.
The most basic political principle is this: It’s up to us whether the government takes care of people or not.
The two most basic principles that the TeaPartiers have are 1.
The national debt must be reduced, and 2.
The Constitution must be amended to remove the federal role in health care and education.
As the Teapartiers have grown in number, they have also adopted a number of other political principles.
The two most important are:1) The right to protest.
This has always been the biggest political issue of the TeaParty.
In the 1980s, many tea partier leaders did not like to speak in public because they believed they were being labeled communists.
The first time they protested, they were arrested.
In 1989, they staged a massive walkout in front of the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The protest was so successful that it was a turning point in the tea parties popularity and ultimately led to its eventual defeat.2) The Tea Party should be a non-partisan organization.
As it has grown in size and influence, theTea Party has also adopted many other non-political principles.
One is: The tea parties focus on individual freedom and individual responsibility.
This is a central political principle of theTea Partiers focus on the individual is very much a hallmark of the movement.
This principle has been used by the Tea Parties to defend their position on abortion, same-sex marriage and even a variety of other social issues.
But the Tea PARTiers also use the principle of personal responsibility, which is why they often have a different stance on immigration than their conservative counterparts.
As far as the Constitution goes, the party has adopted a very narrow interpretation of the document.
In order to become a part of the federal Constitution, one must be a member of the Republican Party.
But this narrow interpretation has been criticized by the majority of tea partying members.
The party’s official position is that they are “not members of the Democratic Party.”
This is the position taken by most tea partied Republicans today
