Montgomery County Tea Party Pac
The mission of MCTP PAC is to organize, educate and empower present and future generations to better convey our opinions and encourage the adoption of our Core Values. We will promote our Core Values in the hearts and minds of our members, elected officials and fellow citizens. We will support candidates at the local, state and federal levels who espouse our Core Values. We will monitor the actions of our elected officials for consistency with our Core Values and will take action to influence them should they deviate from our Core Values.
Acknowledgement of our Creator: The same Lord and Creator that is mentioned throughout our country’s founding document, “The Declaration of Independence”, is omnipresent today. MCTP acknowledges that God is the creator of all things and without God our efforts are insignificant.
Uphold the Founding Documents: We are inspired by The Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. We regard the US Constitution to be the supreme law of the land.
Uphold the Free Markets: A free market is the economic consequence of personal liberty. The founders believed that personal and economic freedom were indivisible, as do we. Government interference with the free market, whether it originates from federal, state, or local government, is punitive, unwelcomed and disruptive, thereby inhibiting individual pursuit of happiness and economic liberty.
Uphold Limited Government: We believe that “government is best … which governs the least”. The federal government is limited to actions authorized by the US Constitution. We support individual liberty and individual responsibility, thus the states or the people should act in all other matters.
Uphold Fiscal Responsibility: A limited government, designed to protect the blessings of liberty, must be fiscally responsible. Increased spending, taxation and debt, unjustly restricts the very individual liberty that limited government is designed to protect; abrogates the rights the US Constitution is designed to secure; and threatens our national sovereignty.
Uphold Ethics: We believe in honesty, transparency and ethical practices. The end does not justify the means. Our principles are important, and the methods we use to achieve them are also important. We want our government to be an ethical government, so we must be ethical, as well.
