Boiling Springs Tea Party Group Reacts to GOP “Republican Tea Parties” Announcement

BOILING SPRINGS, SC–Maria Brady, a founder of one of the largest Tea Parties in the country, and one of the original SC Tea Parties, today issued the following statement in response to the SCGOP announcement that it intends to establish “Republican Tea Parties” in every county to help SC Tea Parties vet candidates for office:

“It is a good thing if the GOP wants to adopt the Tea Party principles as its own, but I have to voice a little skepticism. We, in the Boiling Springs Tea Party group, make candidates prove they uphold our principles before we endorse them. Unfortunately, the Republican Party requires nothing of its candidates. In fact, a prominent Republican office holder and leading candidate running for Congress in Greenville/Spartanburg, Trey Gowdy, said that holding candidates to the Republican Platform is ‘sheer lunacy.’ He is opposing RINO Bob Inglis, but Gowdy is no better. Our Boiling Springs Tea Party candidate, Christina Jeffrey, is the alternative to both of these loose-principled men. If the SCGOP was capable of vetting candidates, she would have their support as well, because the Tea Party principles are basically the same as the GOP Party Platform. Both are in accord with the Constitution and the views of the Founding Fathers.”

    Well said. Christina Jeffery is a true conservative patriot. We must defeat Inglis but not at the expense of replacing him with more of the same. I hope voters in District 4 will take time to get to know the candidates and their core beliefs. Christina is someone who backs up her conservative beliefs with action. We need more like her.

    American liberty and prosperity began as a seed planted by about fifty people in New England almost 400 years ago. There were no government caretakers, so they had to do everything for themselves, think out of the bubble and live out of the box of Old World tyranny they left behind. All individuals were their own government. Each shared governance with others close to them for defense. Government was close, no more than a day’s horseback ride in counties so citizens could change it when needed, advise it in town hall meetings, vote to change it, and punish it by vigilance committees, as people ruled government. Today, government has moved far away, grown, become an organized crime, stealing from and harming its people. The Tea Party movement has come into being as is our tradition.
