Sarah Palin again was in the national news for accepting an invitation to be the headline speaker at the National Tea Party convention which is set to begin February 4 to 6th in Nashville, Tennessee. The convention is expected to draw around one-thousand participants. Palin earlier rejected an invitation to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) which is expected to have over 9,000 members in attendance and is linked to the main stream Republicans. Palin’s spokesman stated that the rejection came because the CPAC puts special interests over core beliefs and has lost touch with their values.

Tea Party Convention people are working to develop further activism against ObamaCare and the out-of-control Federal spending including bailouts, Cap and Trade, Global warming fallacies and the upcoming increases in taxes for middle class Americans. Democrats have been dismissing Tea Party rallies as insignificant and the Republican has been citing their rallies as proof that voters are sick of the status quo. Republicans also dismiss the Tea Party from ever becoming a political force in American politics and have been ignoring their potential for influence in 2010.

Personally, I believe both the Democrats and Republicans may see the day when they will have regrets about not taking the Tea party message seriously as they appear to be developing momentum. What the political parties aren’t taking into account is the fact that a majority of people in the USA are sick of both the Democrat and Republican Parties. The Tea Party is filling the void for this demographic of voters. Tea Party activists are organizing in each of the 50 States to promote applying the brakes to a Government run amuck.  Tea Party Patriots Mission Statement and Core Values

The impetus for the Tea Party movement is excessive government spending and taxation. Our mission is to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.
