What is the Tea Party Militia?


I have had some concerned requests to Define what the Tea Party Militia stands for... So here it is...

I came up with the Tea Party Militia in Response to the Reports that keep coming out of Government that say if you are a Christian, Defender of the Constitution, "Right Wing Extremest", Tea Partier, Own anything with the Words "Don't Tread on Me" and "Liberty or Death" on it then YOU are either a Militia Member or a Domestic Terrorist and a Threat to the Country.

Now being the S**T disturber that I am...the First time I read these Reports I immediately went out and bought Don't Tread on Me Decals for all of my Vehicles. I didn't do this because I am a "Domestic Terrorist" but because We Live in a Free Country and I have the Right to Own, Wear, Drive, Think, Talk, Believe Anything, Live anywhere That I Damn Well Please. And if Our Country is turning into a Place where just being a Person who owns a Flag or wants to Defend the Constitution for Future Generations is Considered a Threat to a FREE NATION then I want to know now.....Not later.

The Idea that a Militia Group that is created out of Law Abiding Citizens is a Danger is Nuts. There will always be crazy people calling themselves any number of names....But to take a Great American Tradition like the Militia...and to Vilify it in a Broad General Sense is Wrong.. Heck Without the Militia we would have never defeated the British...

The Definition of Militia is:

A group of private citizens who train for military duty in order to be ready to defend their state or country in times of emergency. A militia is distinct from regular military forces, which are units of professional soldiers maintained both in war and peace by the federal government.

Now a Militia is not only Legal but protected under the Constitution as the Second Amendment States:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

A Militia is not the National Guard. It is a Group of Citizens that voluntarily joins with other like minded Citizens to come to the Aid of the City, State and Country in Times of Emergency to help keep order and Protect the Constitution.

So does that mean that the Tea Party Militia is a Group that wants to Take Up Arms and Take over the Country...um No.

The Idea behind Joining the Tea Party Militia is so that other Tea Partiers will know that You Get it. That by Joining you are Answering the Call in a Time of Emergency to Defend the Constitution by Standing Up and Being Counted. That is all.....

If someone buys the Shirts and makes it More than that.......well that's on them.

But if you want to Create your own Tea Party Militia Please Feel Free. If you wish to Buy the Shirts I created Please Do and it will Help to Fund not only this Blog but the St. Louis Tea Party Protests as well.

But Remember if you do decide to Be apart of the Tea Party Militia, do so With these Principles in mind.

Duty

Honor

Country

And if you Need an Oath Here is one that I Put together from a Few other Militia Oaths.

I "State Your Name" Swear that:

I am an American Citizen, serving with the Tea Party Militia which guards my homeland, state, and the Constitutions thereof.

I am prepared to give my Life in their Defense and in the Defense of My Fellow Tea Partiers.

I will March in Peaceful Protest Always, Come what may.

In all cases, I will endeavor to instruct and inform other Citizens, seeking to persuade them to join the Patriot struggle; urging them for justice and conscience sake to return America to the Constitutional Republic our forefathers envisioned.

I will never forget that I am an American, a citizen of the greatest nation on Earth, Standing Up for Freedom, Responsible for my Actions, and Dedicated to the Principles which made this Country Free.

I will place my trust in God, the Constitution of United States of America, and the loyalty of her people.

So Help Me God

Congratulations..You are Now Apart of the Tea Party Militia.....

Protest in Peace...and Make Your Country Proud.


If you take the Oath and Join the Tea Party Militia Please Leave your initials in the Comments Section.

Well this Blog should Screw with Government...don't you think?

RTG MO said...

JPbtlfld No it's not quite time for that. Besides the Tea Party Militia isn't that type of Militia.

But to arm yourself is your Constitutional Right, but the way we have to take back our Country is to work from the local to the States and up....through elections.

Violence will only happen in the United States when they start to put people in concentration camps and execute them. Or the Government tries to disarm the Citizens, That will probably not happen in our lifetime and it will not be started by the people.

Militia is a Civilian defensive force that can be called up for the defense of the Country, State or Town. It is not an offensive Assault force, but is a great American Tradition.

Protest in Peace

I have been known to swear at something on a fairly regular basis, it has been a long time since I swore to something.
As for giving my life for something, I don't think that is going to happen. I know I will loose it eventually but it will be have to be taken because it's not going to be given.
Except for that little detail, I do so solemnly swear.
In order to help Claire with her fiscal responsibility project, that she emails me about a couple times a week, I have already turned myself in to save the government the time and expense of ferreting me out.

"No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country". -- George S. Patton

It will take more than a few election cycles to fix this mess if it can be fixed.

It's time to stop hunkering down for the apocalypse and to start thinking Normandy.

You say you are an American who is legitimately alarmed about the power and presence of the federal government in people's lives. If you bothered to actually be informed, and do things like "research" and "reading" (you know, those difficult 'r' words) you would find that most of the super-dee-duper scary Obama initiatives are just scare tactics radical conservatives wildly embellish upon to substantiate their hatred of a black President. You know what's driving this country into the ground? Ignorant people who have nothing better to do with their time than villify the greatest President we've had in decades.

This President is a centrist. Any political analyst, journalist, or generally EDUCATED person who is capable of OBJECTIVE observation of reality (that aforementioned 'reading stuff you haven't read before to inform yourself' stuff) knows this and has known it for several years. The real people fueling the political turmoil, the division, and distrust in this country are people like you. They attack a President who has given comprehensive health care to the poor, driving down costs and standardizing the system, pulled out most of our troops from the most disastrous conflict we've ever been involved in, and now, has eliminated the acting commander of the radical movement we've been obsessed with fighting these many years (which doesn't even really exist anymore, save for a few hundred disgruntled mountain fighters in Pakistan).

This President is saving America from the turmoil we endured under the real despot - that sorry excuse for American (or human being, for that matter)who used one of our greatest national tragedies as a means to further our material interests in probably the most volatile region on Earth (killing 4,000 of our fellow countrymen and hundreds of thousands of the indigenous population in the process).

I'm clearly ranting, but it's only because there's so much to rant about - the economic crisis, Katrina, the Patriot Act???? You want a murdering, dictatorial, freedom-stealing, deficit creating leader to hate? Hate our last President. This one's trying to save all of us (including YOU, ignorant conservative) from what HE did.

So keep spreading unsubstantiated hatred about our commander-in-chief. Because he's working to keep you safe and your nation strong every day. Let the haters keep hating. We'll call you out on it until the sky falls down. The truth never fails.
