Tea Party Professors are uniting the intellectual wing of the Tea Party movement to invigorate the broader movement and increase the intellectuals’ representation in media and academia. All Tea Party Professors are prepared to comment on at least one of five themes: (1) fiscal responsibility, (2) limited government, (3) free markets, (4) the American Revolutionary era or (5) the modern Tea Party movement. Other topics of special interest to our professors are also welcome.
