Just like there are many Republicans involved in the Tea Party there is also many Libertarians in the Tea Party. To both groups I state the following: If your political party comes before conservative principles you are not a member of the Tea Party.
When it comes to our Libertarian friends two issues jump out at me right away; Morals matter and Religion matters.
While we share many concerns with Libertarians, especially when it comes to the economy, what distinguishes Tea Party members is that it is not ONLY about the economy. Our Founding Fathers were clear, in order for this nation to survive it must by lead my moral people held accountable by moral people.
Character matters. Social issues such as abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research are important. What is taught to our children in schools about tolerance, sex and history are important. And maintaining a strong military is essential.
We cannot be scared away from acknowledging the fact that America is a great, prosperous, tolerant, generous, law-abiding nation because she was founded on Biblical principles. To the degree that we stray from that will erode our national character and benefits.
