How the tea parties could change American politics.

I went to a Tea Party did YOU?

Tax Day Becomes Protest Day

Today American taxpayers in more than 300 locations in all 50 states will hold rallies — dubbed “tea parties” — to protest higher taxes and out-of-control government spending. There is no political party behind these rallies, no grand right-wing conspiracy, not even a 501(c) group like MoveOn.org.

So who’s behind the Tax Day tea parties? Ordinary folks who are using the power of the Internet to organize. For a number of years, techno-geeks have been organizing “flash crowds” — groups of people, coordinated by text or cellphone, who converge on a particular location and then do something silly, like the pillow fights that popped up in 50 cities earlier this month. This is part of a general phenomenon dubbed “Smart Mobs” by Howard Rheingold, author of a book by the same title, in which modern communications and social-networking technologies allow quick coordination among large numbers of people who don’t know each other.

  1. Dick Armey (whose organization FreedomWorks contributed heavily to the tea parties) and the rest of corporate America thanks you. The rest of us may not be comfortable with the bailouts, but at least they are an attempt to stimulate American labor again. This is in direct opposition to the Bush administration’s policy of spending trillions on the war in Iraq and giving a no-bid contract worth billions to Halliburton.

    I’d like to see a real Tea Party–like the original one, where we protested taxes designed solely for revenue for England and we protested the fact that we had no voice in Parliament.

    Get a real Tea Party and I’ll join you.
