At the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., earlier this month, WND Editor Joseph Farah explained that every government concern is a moral issue.
In an interview with CSPAN’s BookTV, Farah said he had “a very specific message for the tea-party movement” when he wrote “The Tea Party Manifesto: A Vision for an American Rebirth.”
“I noticed a trend with the tea-party movement where some people were starting to give the tea-party movement advice limiting their scope of interest,” he said. “The biggest thing was the tea-party should only be about economics. … Mainly what I explore in ‘The Tea Party Manifesto’ is the idea that there’s no distinction between economics and other issues.”

Farah continued, “My contention in this book is that economics is a moral issue. Everything that government deals with is a moral issue – whether it’s a speed limit or whether it’s a tax hike or whether it’s dealing with something like abortion – everything’s a moral issue. What government is about is trying to find that moral consensus that they can work with. I just wanted the very important tea-party movement, that’s been so spectacularly successful in some ways in changing the direction of the country, to hear that different point of view.”

Farah also noted that the tea-party movement’s job didn’t simply end after a successful election.
“2010 was a spectacular showing. I don’t think anybody would dispute that the tea-party movement made its presence felt in that election,” he said. “My gut tells me that, for a lot of the tea-party activists, maybe they thought their job was finished after the election and they went home and figured, ‘Well, we’ve taken care of business because we’ve elected the right people.’”
He said the movement’s difficult work was only beginning after the 2010 election.
“But, to me, that’s just where the work begins, because then you have the issue of holding your elected officials accountable while they’re in office,” Farah said. “That’s a much bigger job and it never ends.”
