When former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin burst onto the national scene in 2008, she unleashed a tidal wave … People who never dreamed of getting involved in politics suddenly became engaged for the first time. Thousands of us turned out to rallies that fall and hung on every development in the campaign. We couldn’t believe we had found such a fearless champion for our values.
After the election, millions of conservatives continued to draw inspiration from the once little known governor: Palin-themed blogs and radio shows sprouted up all over the net. Thousands camped overnight for Going Rogue book signings in 2009 and to attend screenings of The Undefeated this summer. There are now by some counts more than 40 blogs devoted exclusively to news about Governor Palin, as well as four exclusive Palin-inspired blog radio programs.
That is why on Oct. 29th we will gather the Palin “tribes” for Grizzly Fest, a historic online summit to move ahead with a positive agenda of reform. We’re not going away!
We will hear from some of the heroes of the Palin grassroots movement including Stephen K. Bannon, Tammy Bruce, Jedediah Bila, Peter Singleton (Organize4Palin), Jackie Siciliano (Team Sarah), and representatives from Conservatives4Palin, Organize4Palin, Smart Girl Politics and Texans4Palin.
We will renew, reload and re-organize.
After the historic elections of 2010, the conservative movement is on the ascendancy.
Now more than ever we have an opportunity to unite alongside Governor Palin to actively and “aggressively” support true public servants who will stop runaway government debt and job-killing regulations. We have the unique opportunity to promote free markets and energy independence. We have the opportunity as a large grassroots movement to continue to hold our elected leaders accountable, and to dismantle the government crony system that stymies our entrepreneurial spirit and siphons away untold billions from our public treasury.
We must fight for leaner government at all levels. We must defeat the permanent political class.
Governor Palin gave us the VISION of what we wanted in a leader.
Now it’s still up to us as constitutional conservatives to make that vision a reality across the country, to advance her vision of reform, ethics, and fiscal responsibility, and to support leaders with the restoration agenda.
The battle awaits us. And we remain UNDEFEATED.
