I would like to better understand this movement. Right now I relate more to the tea party than any other party/group. I have reviewed your top issues and other than #9, 12, 15, (no vote) I had 5 yes and 5 no votes. So it is worth learning more about your movement.
One thing I totally disagree is forgiveness of student loan payments. You signed up and should be responsible enough to step up and pay what you borrowed. Plain and simple, if free education should be available that has to be established first. It's not give take loans then say I shouldn't have to pay them. Other that this I may be able to support your movement.
I have modified the Tea Party values to some I can relate too and want to share and see if we are closely related.
Here it is-
Tea Party patriots are normal, everyday, working people who are fed up with having to balance their family budgets while Congress and the lawyers in Washington, D.C., cook up ways to “tax the living daylights out of us”. Politicians must be held accountable for their actions.
We also believe in American sovereignty — not being ruled by the United Nations.
I’m not convinced that globalism is great; we want our military airplanes made here in the USA. (I personally believe globalism is part of the problem. America was strong when we were self sufficient.)
The Tea Party could care less of someones race, creed, religious beliefs, etc. They are extremely concerned about the way politicians are leading this great Nation.
I am here to learn, we have differences but I am open to see if I can support your movement.
