On October 5th, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin let everyone know she would not seek the GOP nomination for the presidency at this time. She urged supporters to join her in continuing to fight to restore America’s “greatness, goodness, and our constitutional republic based on the rule of law.”
On Oct. 29th Palin supporters will gather for Grizzly Fest, an historic online summit to move ahead with a positive agenda of reform. Because we’ve still got our Grrrr on … Way ON!
Join your friends in the Palin grassroots movement including (Steve Bannon, Tammy Bruce, Jedidiah Bila, Peter Singleton, and representatives from C4P, O4P, Texans4Palin, and Team Sarah) to renew, reload and re-organize. The idea for Grizzly Fest sprang from Tammy Bruce’s suggestion for a Palinista “Meet-Up” to plot our next steps. It gathered steam during a recent Roderic Deane radio show. We’ve rounded-up an inspiring group of Grizzlies to discuss the success of the movement so far, the ongoing work of restoration, and what comes next as we rally around shared values and purpose.
We invite Palin supporters everywhere to listen in LIVE to this important discussion on Saturday, Oct. 29th from 10am to 1 p.m. AKST, and to share their own ideas in our dedicated forums. We will be announcing more details about this event in coming days, and launching a Grizzly Fest website.
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.
Sarah Palin has set the standard of public service — from her days as city council member, then as mayor, chairwoman of the Alaskan gas and oil commission, vice presidential candidate and governor of Alaska. She 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. And we remain UNDEFEATED.
Here’s the line-up for Saturday … You can listen live on your computer or to a recorded podcast and interact in our forums with fellow “Grizzlies.”
