What is the Tea Party?
Simply stated, the Tea Party is people like you and me . . . who are individually responsible and don’t expect our ride to be free! We utilize the vast opportunities protected under our Constitutional Republic. We have a strong work ethic and are not quitters; we can surely take a lick! We recognize that no one owes us anything.
Secondly, we believe in and sanction free markets—healthy capitalism! We
embrace ground up entrepreneurship and industriousness. We applaud the
economic progress made since independence. We support economic growth, but
not at the expense of lives and livelihood. We support fair, ethical and non-political regulations regarding the free market.
Thirdly, we believe that fiscal responsibility is a considerable factor in a stable society. We believe that government must make cuts and reset its spending priority. We believe government spending is guided by lobbyists and not the citizenry. We believe there is constantly vast waste and abuse of tax payer money. We believe spending should be constitutionally sanctioned and include more citizen input.
Lastly, and most importantly, we believe there must be Constitutionally limited government. We believe government is unconstitutionally large and has out grown its authority. We believe that much more transparency is greatly needed. We believe that unelected bureaucrats have far too much power and that there is gross corruption in our government that must be addressed.
If you agree with the above, you are “the Tea Party” . . . and may not realize it. There is no formal membership, just your participation in and supporting activities/events. Those activities center on educating people regarding:
Fiscal Responsibility • Free Markets • Limited Government
. . . . and exercising Individual Responsibility
Do you really think there are many America-loving citizens that would not agree with the statements above?
Boston was the hotbed of revolution in the colonies. In 1773, the Sons of Liberty boarded a British tea vessel and dumped the contents into Boston Harbor in protest of the tax on tea.

Monumental: The Movie
At our last NCTP meeting we screened this landmark film telling the powerful story of our nation's tumultuous founding. Fully documented with footage from historical sites and time period original source records, you will relive the footsteps and events of our forbearers through the quest of one man looking for the answers to questions left unanswered by traditional education. This is a must see for all those with a love of country craving a better understanding of the gift of this nation given to us from those with a multigenerational view.
"MONUMENTAL is an ambitious documentary about actor Kirk Cameron’s quest to understand why America is falling apart and what made it a great country in the first place. He’s asking these questions because he has young children and wants them to have a better future. Kirk’s search for answers takes him to England to find out more about the Pilgrims, who created the first representative government when they landed in Plymouth. Massachusetts. Using interviews with historians and experts such as Marshall Foster and David Barton, he finds out more and more about the Christian roots of the American experiment.
"MONUMENTAL is a very important movie. It reveals the truth about America’s past. It also sets the record straight on much of the misinformation and disinformation that’s crept its way into our popular culture. The movie’s content is excellent and clean. The documentary realization of it could have been better, however. For example, there’s very little done to involve the audience in the story. That said, MONUMENTAL is highly commended for the excellence of the information it communicates." ~ Movie Guide

WE'RE HERE TO ENGAGE OUR COMMUNITY
ENGAGING OUR COMMUNITY THROUCH EDUCATION
Constitution Classes * Duty of the Jury * Liberty Camp
Do you know your rights?
Do you know them well enough to recite them?
Well enough to teach them to the ones you love?
Well enough to defend them?
We the People have the duty to restrain a government operating outside Constitutional boundaries. The Institute on the Constitution invites you to learn how, by discovering your American heritage and birthright.
Next class Spring 2023
What is the job of the jury?
If a jury result makes the media or most of the population mad, does that mean it is not just?
What is the standard for justice?
Where does it come from and how do we know if it is applied properly?
By studying the history and purpose of juries and jury duty, we all become better, more informed, citizens and, consequently our rights become more secure and our communities become better places to live and to raise our children.
Annual LIBERTY CAMP for kids!
An unforgettable experience! Children ages 8 to 12 will learn about the founding of our country through crafts, games, and food.
