River Valley Tea Party Patriots
River Valley Tea Party Patriots are part of an all-volunteer group that is focused on three main areas for our government:
1. Fiscal Responsibility
2. Constitutionally Limited Government
3. Free Markets
River Valley Tea Party Patriots are not supported or financed by the Republican party or anyone else (in other words, the money comes out of our own pockets, so we are not beholding to anyone or any group).
We understand that we do not set the course for other member groups, as they have developed their own vision and plan for how to address the local and national challenges that they are facing.
Tea Party Patriots nationally is a grassroots organization that provides logistical, educational, networking and other types of support to over 2,800 (and growing hourly) community-based tea party groups around the country.
