    Thousands of taxpayers from across the nation are planning to descend on Washington, D.C., to take their fight against excessive spending, bailouts, growth of big government and soaring deficits to the front door of the U.S. Capitol – and they say lawmakers can't hide from their loud and clear message.

    Fox News' Glenn Beck has been promoting the 9-12 Project to bring citizens back "to the place we were on September 12, 2001."

    "The day after America was attacked we were not obsessed with Red States, Blue States or political parties," the 9-12 Project website states. "We were united as Americans, standing together to protect the values and principles of the greatest nation ever created."

    On his show, Beck called Americans to forget about party politics and fight for the return to basic principles upon which the nation was founded.

    "Our economy is tanking. It doesn't show signs of improving," Beck said. "There are people losing jobs, and it doesn't look like there is more help on the way there; there are more cuts on the way. People around the world are taking to the streets. Our government responds with bailouts, and when you call them up and say 'What are you doing?' you don't get any response. They're not listening to you."
