Glenn Beck's Rally Panned by Civil Rights Leaders, Kicks Off Tea Party Rallies

Beck's rally kicks off a series of conservative rallies, most of them organized by grassroots Tea Party groups.

Freedomworks, which organized a rally last year in Washington, is hoping to its success this year on Sept. 12, with its "Taxpayer March."

The message of this year's march reads more like a warning -- "Remember in November!"

"Our idea is to focus on government intervention and free markets, and of course we want more fiscal responsibility from our elected officials," said Bryant, a member of Freedomworks. "That will always be the rallying cry of the grassroots movement."

Bryant said about 1.5 million people showed up last year and organizers are hoping to at least duplicate that figure, if not grow it.

Another Tea Party group called Unite in Action has planned a march on D.C. on Sept. 11.
