/PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the $150 million inauguration only days away, Grassfire.org is announcing that a record 350,000 grassroots conservatives have pledged a patriotic, resilient and determined resistance-against an Obama ideology that could have devastating consequences on our nation.
"This is not a personal attack on Barack Obama," says Grassfire.org founder Steve Elliott. "On the contrary, this is a call to action for conservatives who profess love for our country and respect for our institutions. Our disagreements with the President are based in ideology and public policy only. From this firm foundation we are mounting a patriotic, resilient, conservative resistance to Obama's agenda."
Elliott says he is thrilled by the early response, and anticipates meteoric growth within the first 100 Days of the Obama Presidency. "The President's first one hundred days will give citizens a digitally clear snapshot of where he intends to take us as a nation. This is where we will begin to see the depth of his socialist agenda for America."
The Resistance petition states:As an American citizen, while I will show respect to President-elect Obama, I oppose the far-Left and socialistic elements that comprise the centerpiece of his agenda. I recognize that it will take a patriotic and resilient Citizen Resistance to block implementation of this agenda and I join with others who oppose these threats to our liberties.
Launched shortly after the election, Grassfire's Resistance petition gives conservatives a place to join together around a common goal, and provides web-based structures and strategies that truly equip conservatives to resist any attempt to undermine or erode our liberties. "We believe the very foundation stones of our nation are being threatened, that's why this growing effort is needed. We are taking a stand on a variety of specific issues including wealth redistribution, higher taxes, amnesty and a persistent weakening of our uniquely American culture," says Elliott.
Through the Resistance, Elliott believes conservatives can begin to Rebuild and Restore - "developing new models that inform, equip and prepare conservatives for a return to political prominence."
