On April 15, 2009, a grassroots contingency of Americans that would soon become known around the world as the Tea Party made front-page news.

What has driven hundreds of thousands of people to take to the streets in protest since late February, 2009? A cry of "enough" government expansion and interference and reassertion of individual liberty: a first principle that became a rallying cry behind a movement. A New American Tea Party presents the voices behind the growing discontent among every day citizens with increased government taxation, spending, and intervention.
Author John M. O'Hara - a rising star in the conservative/libertarian movement - played an integral role in starting the first modern day tea party in February of 2008, an effort that sparked off a nation wide movement. On tax day in April 2009, hundreds of thousands of citizens gathered in more than 800 cities to voice their opposition to out of control spending at all levels of government. In August, citizens in every state of the union made their voices heard at congressional town hall meetings. On September 12, 2009 over half a million people marched on the U.S. Capitol.
A New American Tea Party explains how these protests evolved and were organized, and distills the results-including the often bizarre media backlashes-of the movement, the philosophy behind the movement, and the road ahead. Written by one of the leading organizers behind the protests, this book shows you how the costs of bailouts and other excessive government interference today is philosophically incompatible with the founding principles of our nation and simply unsustainable for future generations.
If you're concerned with the growth of government, the state of the union we will pass on to the next generation, and you want to see a roadmap for a better way forward, then you need to read A New American Tea Party.
How to Brew a Tea Party
Amazon-exclusive content from author John M. O’Hara
The tea party movement has involved millions of Americans in the political process like never before. It has significantly changed the political landscape on issues ranging from bailouts and cap and trade to health care. Amidst an encroaching government and radical public policies, concerned patriots have taken to the streets at tea party rallies and town hall protests across the country. This historic movement has been defined by a rallying cry of "enough" government expansion and interference into citizens' lives. A New American Tea Party presents the voices behind the growing discontent among everyday citizens with increased government spending, taxation, and intervention into both the private sector and our private lives.
Author John M. O'Hara played an integral role in starting one of the first modern-day tea parties that sparked off a nationwide grassroots movement. Now, in A New American Tea Party, he explains how these protests evolved, the principles that drive them, and why they are necessary. O'Hara expertly distills the results of the movement, including the often bizarre media backlashes it produced, and offers insight for the road ahead.
Engaging, clever, and informative, A New American Tea Party shows you how the cost of bailouts, handouts, and other excessive government interference is philosophically incompatible with the founding principles of our nation and simply unsustainable for future generations. Throughout the book, O'Hara presents a detailed account of the movement from his perspective inside of it, and:
Sets the historic record straight on this critically important American movement
Makes the case that this is a philosophically sound movement that embodies the founding principles of our nation
Discusses the radical policies being advanced that make this movement more needed than ever
Exposes the phony activism of the Left and how politically powerful, well-funded organizations attempt to stifle the voices of concerned citizens and work against the best interests of our democracy
Discusses what it will take to turn the momentum of this movement into positive, lasting change in public policy
If you're concerned with the growth of government, the direction of our country, and the state of the union that we will pass on to the next generation and you want to see a road map for a better way forward, then you need to read A New American Tea Party.
