2012, IT'S NOW OR NEVER!  Donate Now! 


February 16, 2012

Dear Tea Party Patriot!

In the past 4 years, how many times have you shook your head in disgust at the direction our country is heading? How many times have you pounded your fist on the coffee table while watching the local or national news? We're sure it has been too many times to count!

This year, 2012, isn't just a leap year! It's an Election Year so Critical to the American Way of Life that it could land us right into the Progressive's Statist Abyss if we do not fight it with all that we have! We can either leap forward into liberty and prosperity, or heave backward, further, into Obama's Tyranny.

Obama's latest dismantling of our Constitution is evident in the contraception controversy involving the Catholic Church. This administration is effectively trying to dictate to a religious organization to violate their most basic beliefs. After the assault on Catholics, who is next? This is an attack on our Constitutional rights and is the most recent example of government overreach, intruding upon our lives and our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!

How can we allow this to continue? 


Are you ready for the fight of your life? We can't sit back on our heels and wait to see what unfolds. We must STAND UP against the Progressive agenda. Will you help the Tea Party Accomplish this?  Please help us realize our goals:

Recruit & Educate new candidates in 2012 
Elect a majority of Fiscal Conservatives into the NM Legislature 
Elect Fiscal Conservative Candidates to the US Congress 
Assist in holding Elections with Integrity

John Boehner Needs a Wakeup Call   


Albuquerque Tea Party Media Contact: 
Rick Harbaugh, 1709 Indiana NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110 
Date of Release: Thursday, February 16, 2012

According to the February 13th issue of Godfather Politics, John Boehner appears to be predisposed to compromising with the Liberal Progressives on a wide variety of issues - contrary (or at least partially so...) to his promises in 2010 to reduce taxes and the Federal debt.

The Albuquerque Tea Party mission is to preserve the Constitutional rights of the citizens by limiting government, constraining government spending and taxation, and advancing a free market economy.  We need to ask Speaker Boehner what has he accomplished to further us along on our mission.

Since he took office after the 2010 elections, the Speaker has not been able to turn this Nation around. We are still headed in the wrong direction.

He will cite a litany of bills that have been stalled in the Senate but, not one single bill that would slow the Obama express has been passed. The Speaker has been unsuccessful in slowing the advance of the liberal progressive agenda, let alone stopping or reversing their accomplishments.
  • He will cite compromises with the liberals on debt ceilings.
  • He will cite compromises on appropriations.
  • He will cite compromises on taxes.
  • He will refuse to hold the executive branch to its Constitutionally limited activities. What about the Cordray appointment and Fast and Furious?
  • He will not mention the thousands of pages of new Federal regulations that are choking our economy with devastating results.
All to the benefit of the liberal, progressive regime.  Each compromise is a total capitulation to liberal principles and a snub not only to the Tea Party Mission, but conservative principles in general.  What is he thinking?  Who is he colluding with, President Obama?

Tea Party members need to tell Speaker Boehner that enough is enough.  Please tell the Speaker that it is time to start acting like a conservative and derail this liberal progressive freight train.

Contact Speaker Boehner and tell him that we are not happy with his record and that we need to not just pass bills, but stop the Obama express:

We hope that you can play a big part in helping us realize our goals:


Recruit and Educate New Candidates for 2012

Elect a majority of Fiscal Conservatives in 2012 into the NM Legislature

Influence the NM legislative process to result in Limited Government Spending and encourage Transparency in that Legislative Process

Elect another Fiscally Conservative US Congressman and Senator

Influence APS and Albuquerque City Council Policy

Hold Elections with Integrity

Continue to Host our Signature April 15th Event


We made some in-roads in the 2010 election by electing 8 new members to the NM House of Representatives. However, we must continue our fight against progressives and elect even more fiscal conservatives in 2012. We are asking for your support in the way of funding and volunteer work, to completely turn the tide in our state and help our new governor 


"Take Back New Mexico!"


The Albuquerque Tea Party is planning and building for 2012 and we have to start now!


We cannot afford to sit back on our heels in an off-election year and have the forward momentum of 2010 be reduced to inaction!   


We have many goals for the upcoming year and into 2012.
