Our Philosophy

“We The People” Tea Party is a southern Iowa group of non-partisan American Citizens uniting to work to return our constitutional government to the principles and values of our founding fathers. We invite Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and other parties that support the U.S. Constitution to join us. We understand that the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are inseparable. We believe in the freedom of religion. We are proud of our Christian heritage and its vital role in forming our government. We believe in lawful, respectful, and non-violent gatherings and demonstrations to support constitutional government. We welcome all United States citizens without regard to educational level, race, color, culture, or creed. We accept responsibility for allowing corruption in all levels of our government. We believe it is absolutely necessary that “We the People” raise our voices and get involved as we remember Abraham Lincoln’s words, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
