Who are Tea Party Patriots?


Ottumwa Courier

---- — First and foremost, if you love God, you may be a Tea Party Patriot.

Second, if you love this country we call the United States of America, you may be a Tea Party Patriot.

Third, if you value freedom and all the people in our past and present who have sacrificed to give us this gift, you may be a Tea Party Patriot.

Fourth, if you value the contents of our Constitution, you may be a Tea Party Patriot.

Fifth, if you believe in the dignity of working to support yourself (if able) and your family is far superior than government handouts, you may be a Tea Party Patriot.

Sixth, if you believe that truth, no matter how much some people may not appreciate it, is our salvation, you may be a Tea Party Patriot.

Seventh, if you believe everyone should abide by the laws of this country, then you may be a Tea Party Patriot.

Eighth, if you are willing to stand up for other points of view and even people who name-call us, you may be a Tea Party Patriot.
