About Us - Our Mission

The Shelby 912 Tea Party Group is a grassroots, non-partisan organization of private citizens united by our shared values and opposed to wasteful government spending. We believe in fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets. Our mission is to organize like-minded individuals, educate and inform others based on our core values, to secure public policy consistent with those values, and to positively affect the outcome of elections.

The Shelby 912 Tea Party Group was founded in December 2009 by a local group of citizens.  

What we stand for: 

1.     Limited Government – As our Founding Fathers recognized, restraint of government is necessary to protect the liberties of the people.

2.     Fiscal Responsibility – Government at all levels must learn to live within its means. To saddle future generations with the crushing burden of our excess spending is unconscionable.

3.     Personal ResponsibilityLiberty is unsustainable without responsibility. Each citizen must take responsibility for the consequences of his or her own actions while respecting the rights and dignity of others.

4.     The Rule of Law – Consistent, independent and uniform application of the law is critical to a free and prosperous society.

5.     National Sovereignty – We must maintain a strong national defense, effective security for our borders, and sole control over our land and our laws.

What we won’t stand for: 

1.     Personal Attacks – We’re debating positions and policies, not demonizing people or groups.

2.     Unfounded Rumors – The easily verifiable facts are bad enough. Don’t weaken our position by stretching the truth.
