About ABQ TEA
We are your friends, your family, your neighbors, and your coworkers.
We are Democrats, Republicans, and Independents ...we are you!
On April 15, 2009 (IRS Tax Day Rally), we came together for the first Time - 7,000 strong. We asked our elected representatives to listen.
On April 15, 2010, we came together again - over 10,000 strong; and asked them again to listen. We’re still asking. They’re still not listening!
Our beliefs are simple:
Americans consider themselves moderate to conservative on taxes, government spending and the regulation of private business. That means that America agrees, whether completely or mostly, with the principles that the ATP hold most dear.
It is our Congress and the media that are out of touch.
We are America’s grassroots – the mainstream who will no longer be silent. Our vote is our weapon. Vigilance is our strength.
Everything that makes America good and strong is under attack. Our private sector, the cornerstone of our capitalist system has given us the most powerful nation in the world. It is being strangled by regulation, pilloried in the press, and taken over and dismantled piece by piece by our government.
The most generous, most innovative, and most hard working people in the world are called “selfish”, “stupid”, and “radical”.
This is the atmosphere in which the ATP was born.
Thousands of New Mexicans answered a call to tell Congress and the Administration that we, not they, control our destiny. We, not they, are indispensable to the success of our Nation. And we, not they, will decide their political futures.
The ATP has many dedicated volunteers, working every day in their spare time to keep you informed on the issues that Congress is throwing at us with dizzying speed. Some are planning events. Others are publishing our newsletter, working in our Patriot Action Teams, and staying in touch with the media. We invite you to join us.
On the 3rd Tuesday of each month the Albuquerque Tea Party meets with fellow conservatives at the UNM Continuing Education Conference Centerfrom 7 to 8:30 PM. Come early and bring a friend or two!
