Yes, America was calling all everyday people that believe in Freedom and the Constitution of the United States to travel across the country to go to the Restoring Honor rally at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial on 8/28/10. And now, America is calling those same people, plus many more, to vote on November 2, 2010.
What Henry's column is saying to us is that the socialists believe that they can transform America, but that they don't really understand that most Americans are becoming aware of their objectives. And as more Americans become aware, they will make sure that they are at the polls on November 2. There will be some surprises for the progressives, a.k.a. socialists, when they see their candidates go down in defeat. Just sayin'...
UPDATE September 20, 2010
I just found this video that I want to include with this post:
Restoring Honor (Song)

The purpose of the demonstration on Oct. 2 is to convince America, and the world, that there are more people in American who prefer a socialist agenda than there are people who prefer the principles of freedom set forth in the U.S. Constitution.Dueling demonstrations
Regardless of the number of people who show up at the Lincoln Memorial on Oct. 2, it will prove only that the socialists have more money and are better organized than plain, old, everyday Americans. What really matters, however, is not the number of socialists who go to Washington on Oct. 2, but the number of everyday Americans who go to the polls on Nov. 2.
Glenn Beck did not awaken everyday Americans nearly as much as did Barack Hussein Obama. Beck just helped everyday Americans see the socialists Obama brought into the administration and the socialist agenda Obama is imposing.
The socialists' Oct. 2 rally is calling for an even more radical transformation of America; the Nov. 2 rally at election booths across the nation will echo Beck's call to restore honor to America by returning to God and to the principles of freedom enshrined in the U. S. Constitution.

The progressive world was shocked by the throngs of people who gathered at the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28 in response to Glenn Beck's call to attend his "Restoring Honor" rally. Crowd estimates ranged from 87,000 to more than 500,000, which liberal media talking heads discounted as little more than the number of tourists in Washington on any given day.
Across town, Rev. Al Sharpton complained about Beck's attempt to hijack Martin Luther King's dream – to a few hundred of his faithful followers.
Within hours of Beck's event, the progressive world announced its bigger and better demonstration to be held at the Lincoln Memorial on Oct. 2, one month before Election Day. Their event is called "One World Working Together." More than 150 organizations are promoting this event. Even a casual review of the mission statement of these groups, and the "what we stand for" statements, reveal that these organizations are the people who are promoting a socialist agenda in this country.
Rarely has there been an opportunity to see so vividly the political and philosophical division in this nation.
Glenn Beck's rally called for a return to God and the principles of freedom set forth in the Constitution.
The "One Nation" rally, according to their website, will call for government to adopt a socialist agenda to control the work force, to control education and to achieve social equality.
Compare what the "One Nation" organizations advocate with the Socialist Party USA platform.
Socialists in America have made great gains in recent years because they are far better organized than are non-socialists. Socialists have re-labeled themselves as "progressives," rather than the socialists they are. Americans are discovering that even though it may be politically correct to call a skunk a mustelidae, when it begins to spew, there is no question about what it really is. There can be no question that the groups aligned with "One Nation" are working to implement a socialist agenda.
