Several thousand neopatriots – some shouting “Give me liberty or give me death!” – took to the streets in over 30 US cities Friday, representing what some of them call the beginning of a new conservative counterculture in America.

“The spark has been lit,” says Ben Mihalski, a “house husband” from Cobb County, Ga., one of at least 300 protesters who gathered in a hefty downpour outside the Georgia Capitol on Friday to protest what they see as profligate spending by Washington.

Protesters with sign-slogans like “Pillage and plunder: At least the Vikings did it openly” fanned out across capitols and courthouses in cities from Nashville, Tenn., to Los Angeles, objecting to bailouts and policy changes since the inauguration of President Obama.

The Tea Party USA movement also added some symbolic flourish, vowing to gather tens of thousands of tea bags to be dumped on the floor of the US Congress. In Atlanta, the brand was Luzianne.

But the largely grassroots show of force hints at a sharpening thorn for Democrats and a potential powder keg that could threaten to blow ahead of the 2010 congressional elections.

“It’s worth remembering that the rise of the New Right and the Christian Right, one after the other, were both spurred by tax issues, the whole idea of paying for things they don’t believe in,” says sociologist Eugenia Deerman at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston who studies conservative social movements.

Only in America Baby! How amazing is it that despite all our diversity, we have a tight cohesive bond based on our very own, very clear , very certain sense of what is and what is not the American Way. We KNOW who we are and we LOVE who we are, unlike some of our political representatives sad to say.

Clearly we gave not forgotten who we are despite what some may say…

And we are passionate in our belief in America and our ability to be self sufficient and entrepeneurial and overcome ANY obstacle. We THRIVE on challenge. We do not want handouts or bailouts or a new system of governance or ideology or cultural collective and subservience to some politician’s idea of a ‘greater good’. Millions of us do have that belief and we live it in our daily lives and our faith, whatever it may be, and we do NOT want the government putting their big feet into our American Way of Life. /editorial off :0)

    The direction attemted policys are headed are beyond shear stupidity. As in business “listen to your people” The goverment works for us. I move we do away with presidents day and replace it with “WE THE PEOPLE DAY” with intended purpose of voicing our opinion so often left censored or simply unheard due to buracratic red tape. LetS change the way the media reports what government wants us to hear. LET THE PEOPLE BE HEARD NOW! Mike Arizona

    What a great turnout, especially considering that people on the right typically HAVE JOBS that they need to be at. Unlike the brainwashed unemployed college student types on the left.
