Our story starts off with a group of high school students from Glen. A Wilson High School here in California hoping to not only make a difference in our youth but to make a difference in America . My name is Caleb Yee and I am part of the A-Team. We proud and humbled to say that we are the first high school Tea Party club in the country and our mission is to spread our youth movement across America like wildfire. Our main purpose is to inform, protect, and lead the American youth into a brighter future.
With a committed advisor and a group of conservative students we decided to tackle the problems facing America and show the youth that we need to get involved now in order to change it. We truly wondered on how our future would be like thirty, ten, or even a few years from now. With the gracious encouragement from the Tea Party Patriots and a group of other wonderful supporters across America , we felt confident enough to step into the realm of political activism.
We were clearly tired of students basing the GOP, the Tea Party Movement and conservative ideals off of liberally biased media stereotypes. We know that what is happening to country now would not only affect us, but also our future children and grandchildren as well. We wanted to bring back the cherished idea that American values are important and should be something we are proud of but also return to the ideals the Founding Fathers implemented in the Constitution.
We are still a fresh movement, the first of its kind and we still have a long and exciting journey ahead of us. Our vision is clear: We believe in fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets like America was intended to have. We believe these principles are necessary in order for our country to be strong in the future.We have a vision, a dream, a goal, and a mission to protect those ideals and the rights of Americans even though we cannot vote as minors. As we took the steps from making our dream become a reality, I realized that if a group of young adults in a Californian public high school can start this movement, then anybody can do the same anywhere in the United States of America.
We do not know yet the conflicts or opposition we may run into sooner or later, but we will carry on with the love, support, dreams, inspiration, and encouragement from Americans. We do not fear any attack from any critics because we know the truth and when you stand in the light of the truth nothing can tear you down.
I send this message out not only to the adults of America , but to the young patriots of America . You are not alone! Take a stand! Stand Up and carry on the torch of truth and courage. I humbly ask all Americans to help support this movement by informing their children and grandchildren of our country’s history. To encourage them to educate themselves about what needs to be done in order to preserve the work our founding fathers laid out in order to secure our future. Like Ronald Reagan once said, “We'll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we'll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”
We are waiting. Together we will win because victory is inevitable.Because we know that our states are united by a history being forgotten and a future we shall face together. We are the A-Team, and we send this message so that our nation’s past will always be remembered. For in these memories, we will strive towards Life, Liberty , and the Pursuit of Happiness.
