Proclamation of the Strasbourg Tea Party

Proclamation of the Strasbourg Tea Party
15-16 December 2007

On December 16, 2007, Ron Paul supporters from the United States and seven European nations (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Slovakia, Switzerland, and United Kingdom) assembled in front of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, for the purpose demonstrating the broad base of international support that Dr. Ron Paul inspires by joining with their brothers and sisters in America celebrating the famous “Boston Tea Party” of 1773. On the previous day, many the participants attended a conference held to discuss ways to help Ron Paul’s campaign for president of the United States, and furthering the Ron Paul Revolution in Europe. The following statement was adopted by the participants:

We Proclaim:
  • Never before has a candidate for president of the United States inspired people around the world as Ron Paul has done.
  • Ron Paul has cured our apathy and inspired the enthusiasm of youth throughout Europe, just as he has in America. He has given us hope in limited government, and restored faith that democracy can work.
  • We thrill to his message of liberty and personal responsibility, which is so different from that of normal politicians, who see the people they are supposed to serve as little but helpless clients to be managed by the state.
  • We no longer wish to have our lives interfered with and controlled by bureaucrats.
  • We share Ron Paul’s concern for the stability of our financial system, and believe that sound money is essential for the economic health and financial stability of not only America but also of Europe and the rest of the world.
  • We share Ron Paul’s insight that our bloated governments and financial managers are controlled by special interests who are neither responsible nor responsive to the people.
  • We applaud Ron Paul for bringing these issues into the public consciousness, and dedicate ourselves to educating people about them.
  • We believe that Ron Paul’s call to return to the original principles of the United States Constitution, and of America’s Founders, is the best route to world peace and security.
  • We believe that Ron Paul’s foreign policy principles of respect for sovereignty and non-interventionism are as applicable to the European Union and to our own nations as they are to the United States.
  • Ron Paul has been called an “isolationist” by his opponents. We want Americans to know that Ron Paul is inspiring an international movement, and that he is the only candidate who is making friends for America and gathering broad-based international support.
  • We believe that Ron Paul has sparked a revolution of friendship between all those in Europe and America who share his values, and that this friendship and this Revolution will continue to grow in strength and depth.
  • We dedicate ourselves to supporting Ron Paul in his election campaign this year, supporting his goals when he is elected president, and bringing his message of liberty and personal responsibility to our own nations in Europe.

Adopted in Strasbourg by the participants of the Strasbourg Tea Party on the 15th and 16th days of December, Anno Domini 2007.

Why the Counterculture Should Support Ron Paul

Hippies, ravers, punk rockers, "goths", adherents of spiritualities outside the mainstream religions (New Age, pagans, Wiccans, Buddhists), so-called "sexual minorities" (gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals, transsexuals and transgendereds); all of these subcultures should unite around this man who respects your freedoms!

Ron Paul Revolution - European Style

Let me tell you, do not wish for more volunteers,
more money or more media attention.
Let those, who don't have the stomach for this revolution,
let them stay home, sitting on their couch.
Bring them something to drink before you leave,
'cause we will not have them in our campaign.
We will not stand in the cold and rain in that man's company,
that fears his fellowship to fight for liberty together with us.
This revolution is called the Ron Paul Revolution.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this Revolution is named.
He that shall triumph on this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on december 16th, tell his friends and neighbours,
I was there at the Tea Party,
Then he will show them the banners and the buttons,
the YouTube videos and countless pictures,
and say "these I was holding, I was there"
And he'll remember, what feats he did that day.
And we in it, we shall be remembered-
we few, we happy few, we band of brothers and sisters.
And all those people, now sitting on their couches,
shall think themselves accursed they did not join us.
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks,
That fought with us in the Ron Paul Revolution.

The New Model for Revolution

" As the Republican race comes down the home stretch before the first vote is cast in Iowa, the outcome is anything but certain. More clear than what the eventual voter totals will be is that the campaign of Ron Paul has built an underground infrastructure of funding, organizing and promoting that may very well mark a significant paradigm shift not only in political campaigns but in the organization of dissent against the United States government and governments around the world.

Ron Pauls Appeal to the Youth

One thing appears certain: What we see on campuses and online is the largest youth movement with a distinctive libertarian bent in many, many years, if not in our nation’s history.
