None  Political- We the people

The Cumberland County Tea Party meets on the first Tuesday each month, is not connected to any political party and no dues are collected.  It is a diverse movement of like-minded citizens who believe in limited government as ordained in the Constitution of the United States, particularly the first, second and tenth amendments.  Its purpose is to attract, educate, organize and mobilize fellow citizens to secure policies consistent with core values of fiscal responsibility and free markets.

The public is invited to hear Mr. Wayne Morrow present an explanation of the Deep State on Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 @ 6:00 pm at the Hiawatha Community Center, 125 Country Club Drive, Crossville, TN.  The Hiawatha Community Center is next to the R-Place Pub and Grill in Lake Tansi.  Hosted by the Tea Party of Cumberland County, the doors will open at 5:30 pm.  


A Warning from the Founders

the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, Samuel Adams, who is sometimes called the "father of the revolution," wrote to Richard Henry Lee:  "I thank God that I have lived to see my country independent and free. She may long enjoy her independence and freedom if she will. It depends on her virtue." (Wells, Life of Samuel Adams, 3:175.)

John Adams pointed out why the future of the United States depended upon the level of virtue and morality maintained among the people. He said:


"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." (Quoted in John R. Howe, Jr., The Changing Political Thought of John Adams, Princeton University Press, Princeton, N.J., 1966, p.

Samuel Adams knew the price of American survival under a Constitutional form of government when he wrote:
"The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy the gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people; then shall we both deserve and enjoy it. while, on the other hand, if we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of our Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves." (Wells, Life of Samuel Adams, 1:22-23.)nWhat is the Key to Preserving a Virtuous Nation?

Since the quality of virtue and morality in the character of a nation is the secret to its survival, one cannot help but wonder if there is some special ingredient which is fundamentally necessary to provide the greatest assurance that these qualities of our national life will be preserved. There is!

“…thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness [unjust gain]; and place such over them, to be rulers…"  – Exodus 18:21

THE MOST PROMISING METHOD OF SECURING A VIRTUOUS AND MORALLY STABLE PEOPLE IS TO ELECT VIRTUOUS LEADERS. I ask you America. Have we failed to elect such leaders?
