Glenn Beck has begun to promote a march on the National Mall in Washington DC, timed to coincide with the anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

Except Beck wants to steer America back in time, before the progressive movement began.

"I am drafting plans now to bring us back to an America that our founders would understand," he told a crowd in Florida saturday, at a book-sales event.

Beck has been "doing a lot of reading on history in the last few years" and announced that he is crafting a 100 year plan for the nation.

Beck told the crowd he wants them to come to a march at the foot of the Abraham Lincoln statue next summer for its unveiling. His next book will be called The Plan.

The crowd surrounding Beck at his masterful book-selling event in a Florida retirement community seemed unresponsive to his comment that "we need to start thinking like the Chinese."
