A mere three weeks after Glenn Beck’s successful “Restoring Honor" rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., hundreds of thousands more people are expected to come together at the National Mall for a four-day event. From Thursday September 9 through Sunday September 12, Americans will take part in “Unite in Action,” a march on D.C. designed to bring together “conservative grassroots patriots” for the purpose of “unifying constitutional patriots to preserve liberty and the [c]onstitutional principles upon which this nation was founded.”
In an attempt to rival the largely successful "Restoring Honor" rally and the upcoming “Unite in D.C.” weekend of patriotic events, liberals and Leftists across the nation have scheduled a rally of their own for October 2, 2010. Entitled “One Nation Working Together,” the rally is set to take place in the same location as Glenn Beck’s "Restoring Honor" rally, the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, from noon until 4:00 p.m.
