The Tea Party Express hit the road on Sunday, kicking off a nationwide tour with plans to hold rallies in 38 cities in 19 days.

The Tea Party Express departed from San Diego yesterday and will traverse the nation, coast-to-cast, before ending up in Orlando, Florida on Veteran’s day.

The Tea Party Express calls for less government spending, and opposes increased government involvement in health care, corporate bailouts and deficit spending.

Gary Tuchman reports tonight on 360° on the people who are taking part in the protests and looks into why they're frustrated, worried and angry. He'll be live from a protest in Fresno, Calif. tonight.

These images were taken at a protest in Los Angeles on Sunday.

An anti-Tea Party protest set up in the same park as the Tea Party rally but behind police tape. While approximately 350 to 500 people gathered at the Tea Party rally, the anti-Tea Party protesters numbered around 50.

    Protest while we can, Obama hasn't been able to take that away from us............yet! TEA parties are our way to protest the out of control spending, taxation and socialist agenda being forced on us. People who pay NO income tax can't possibly understand why those of us who pay and pay dearly are fed up.
