"We have been meeting/planning since late November, and our inaugural meeting is January 18th.

She is of course invited."

Our primary objective is to break the cycles of dependency and decay that continue to anesthetize and hold captive too many Black families and neighborhoods. We provide continuing series of speakers, seminars, training and practical business support services designed to help Blacks fully assimilate into and be competitive in American society. Our objective is to teach Americans the fullness of the history of Blacks in America and to help Blacks gain control of their lives and the destiny of their children. Only
by understanding our full and true history will we all be liberated.
The Crispus Attucks Tea Party rapidly growing Tea Party movement. It is a nonpartisan, neighborhood movement. It provides a base for who realize that welfare checks and government dependency are key elements of their destruction. The corresponding destructive cycles have destroyed lives, families and their neighborhoods. Government dependency holds Blacks hostage. It precludes true liberty and forever blocks full assimilation. Our mission includes building strong neighborhood bases made of business people, elected officials, Constituents and Voters, living and working in hostile areaa. Intellectually honest Constituents living in Black neighborhoods want them to be safe and to thrive while becoming less dependent on the tax dollars of others. These Constituents want disciplined classrooms and globally competitive educations for their children. They want full control of the schools, stores and businesses within their neighborhoods. These things will come only when Constituents living in these neighborhoods feel that they are worthy of them.
The Crispus Attucks Tea Party provides a way for Constituents to organize themselves around specific economic and political issues. It works to insure that Constituents have the benefit of divergent and truly competitive political ideas, points of view and debates so that they may truly vote their values; and know that their vote will be counted honestly. We provide viable means for those living outside such areas to get directly involved, share their skills and resources and make a difference. We focus on education and removing the remaining psychological shackles of poor education, hate, fear, suspicion, superstition and insecurity. These shackles are constantly used to isolate and manipulate Blacks and minimize the value of their ballots.
Developing positive values and identities are critical if America is to break demeaning cycle of dependency. Too many of, have given up, remain locked in self defeating rituals and an unrelenting fear of the responsibilities that come with learning. Psychologically, many of is critical. These are both very personal concepts. Thus, this work must be done by working, respectfully, within Black neighborhoods. Blacks guidance and tangible support provided by Americans who have escaped, and other Americans who are eager to support them. We will pray for the rest who are not able to join us at this point in time; we will be ready for them when they are ready for us.
The Crispus Attucks Tea Party promotes and fights for the founding principles originally defined by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Our core principles are personal responsibility, education, constrained and transparent government, a balanced budget, self sufficiency, full assimilation and the development of viable Black businesses that create jobs. We identify & vet viable Conservative candidates that are willing to fight for our mission, our principles and the issues we embrace. Candidates and elected officials that support our efforts and embrace our issues may join our efforts
