Comment Last Three

Congrats to Glenn Beck and the thousands of loyal American citizens who attended or watched the "march on Washington". We need loyal Americans to stand up to the Obama liberals and the ACLU type organizations who want to "dumb-down" American values of personal responsibility, hard work, faith, saying the Pledge of Alligance, and limited federal government. It is time for American citizens to REVOLT against the liberal left and socialists and take back our country. We are fed up with Obama and his liberal left supporters--especially the liberal media who prompt him up.
We must vote out all Democrats who have hijacked their party as a mouth piece for the ultra left and bunch of Anti-Americans. We need God in our lives and limit the stay of professional politicians in Congress.
Conservative commentator Glenn Beck and tea party champion Sarah Palin appealed Saturday to a vast crowd on the National Mall to help restore traditional American values and honor Martin Luther King's message. Civil rights leaders who accused the group of hijacking King's legacy held their own rally and march.
While Beck billed his event as nonpolitical, activists from around the nation said their show of strength was a clear sign that they can make a difference in the country's future and that they want a government that will listen and unite.
Palin told the hundreds of thousands who stretched from the marble steps of the Lincoln Memorial to the grass of the Washington Monument that calls to transform the country weren't enough. "We must restore America and restore her honor," said the former Alaska governor, echoing the name of the rally, "Restoring Honor."
Palin, the GOP vice presidential nominee in 2008 and a potential White House contender in 2012, and Beck repeatedly cited King and made references to the Founding Fathers. Beck put a heavy religious cast on nearly all his remarks, sounding at times like an evangelical preacher.
"Something beyond imagination is happening," he said. "America today begins to turn back to God."
Beck exhorted the crowd to "recognize your place to the creator. Realize that he is our king. He is the one who guides and directs our life and protects us." He asked his audience to pray more. "I ask, not only if you would pray on your knees, but pray on your knees but with your door open for your children to see," he said.
A group of civil rights activists organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton held a counter rally at a high school, then embarked on a three-mile march to the site of a planned monument honoring King. The site, bordering the Tidal Basin, was not far from the Lincoln Memorial where Beck and the others spoke about two hours earlier. Sharpton is the nation's number 2 race-baiter, right behind Jesse Jackson.
