What are we about?We are a grassroots citizen empowerment movement.
The individuals that comprise the TEA Party Movement believe in many different views on many subjects.
Why the T.E.A. Party?
The Boston Tea party
was a people's uprising against the abuse of
government power against
its citizens in 1773.
Their motto was:
"NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION"
And while this was part of American history the sentiment is universal.
We have borrowed and modified this saying to reflect citizens frustration with government engorgement and our apparent powerlessness to reduce or even restrict it.
"NO TAXATION WITHOUT REAL REPRESENTATION"
Just as the Australian Flag partly recognises the fact of our British heritage, so too we are partly acknowledging the historical fact of this
This sentiment doesn't just
belong to the Americans,
it belongs to all of us:
We absolutely require all members and supporters to follow a strict code of zero tolerance for racism, and support the peaceful respect
for the opinions and
freedoms of others.
"Our individual freedoms depend on respecting
those of others"

Welcome to the Australian T.E.A. Party Movement
We are NOT a political party; indeed we are Non-Party-Political choosing to support or oppose whoever best helps the ideas and beliefs of our movement regardless of their party affiliation.
How do you know if you, like over 50 million people worldwide are a natural Tea Party Movement supporter?
Can the Tea Party Movement be of benefit to you?
It really is very simple.
We ask 2 basic questions.
What is, and what should be the role of government in the economy?
What is, and what should be the role of government in peoples lives?
If you think that the answers to what is versus what should be are very different- Then you are a natural Tea Party Movement supporter.
Do you feel that you have lost your voice?
Have government and entrenched elites become the master and not the servant?
Do you feel that members of these elites have too much control in both major political parties?
Do you think that real choices that would actually work —making life better— are never presented?
Do you feel that, every day, government gets bigger and your burden of paying for it grows heavier?
Are you searching for something to do about it?
The Tea Party Movement can help you do something about it!
