Welcome to the New Mississippi Tea Party Website! This space will feature news that is current and speaking to the issues of the Day.
Happy Independence Day is celebrated on July 4th every year in America!
In my Catholic Church, Independence Day mass is celebrated for thanksgiving of religious freedom in these United States -- just one precious liberty we enjoy in this country. And it is the First liberty mentioned in our Bill of Rights.
Independence Day is honoring the conservatism that our Founders learned from the Great Thinkers of recent past (to them) and of antiquity. Excerpt from the piece below from the Washington Examiner:
In contrast (to the French Revolution), American independence and the revolution that put it in place were necessary not because the revolutionaries and their leaders wanted everything to change, but the revolution here was about upholding timeless ideals. America itself was a new idea, but the unalienable rights we fought for of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are those with which we have been endowed by our Creator since the dawn of time.
Just ask Jefferson himself. "This was the object of the Declaration of Independence," he wrote in a letter to Henry Lee in May 1825. "Not to find out new principles, or new arguments, never before thought of, not merely to say things which had never been said before; but to place before mankind the common sense of the subject, in terms so plain and firm as to command their assent, and to justify ourselves in the independent stand we are compelled to take." In that vein, the "revolution" was conservative and indeed conforms to Edmund Burke's original use of the word with its common meaning of something revolving. A full revolution returns affairs to an original condition.
Read the whole article from the Washington Examiner.
I hope all will enjoy a peaceful and joyous day -- of thanksgiving to those who came before us to make us all aware of our many blessings of liberty that we have enjoyed some 241 years after their sacrifice. May God bless America!

WHAT IS THE MISSISSIPPI TEA PARTY?
The Mississippi Tea Party is part of the grassroots political movement support by patriots across America. It was formed in 2009 to include local chapters organized together within our state to encourage a citizen voice in governing. The Mississippi Tea Party is the nonprofit statewide organization.
The Mississippi Tea Party is not a political party, instead, members support candidates whose beliefs and actions support the core beliefs of the Tea Party Movement:
The State wide organization:
The goals of the Mississippi Tea Party are:
The Tea Party and social issues:
Social issues in America can be strongly polarizing. While Tea Party members may have strong beliefs on certain matters it is important not to let those issues distract from The Tea Party's core beliefs of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets. The Tea Party does not take a position on social issues. Members are encouraged to involve themselves with other organizations to more appropriately get involved in these issues.
