The mission of The Bryan/College Station Tea Party is: Teach. Empower. Act. The end result of this mission will be a community, state, and nation experiencing the the benefits of a return to constitutional principles as well as the republican foundation of the rule of law and separation of powers.
Therefore, we as a local Tea Party advocate the application of constitutional principles to better vet candidates.
