Have you heard about the new resistance movement? It's a resistance movement against the not-yet-president Barack Obama.
Conservative Republicans have proven in the last eight years that they can't govern successfully on a federal level, and really don't want to anyway. The next eight years will be a clinic on what conservative Republicans do well.....obstruct progress. Block the people's will.
Barack Obama promised to end our occupation of Iraq, extend health care to virtually all Americans, end the disastrous trickle down, top-heavy economics of the past 28 years by investing in the middle class and ending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest, boldly confront global warming, restore America's status in the world, and close Guantanomo, among other promises.
The American voters elected Obama with 53% of the popular vote and 365 electoral votes. An inarguable mandate from voters to implement his campaign agenda.
So...if Americans want what Obama is offering....and they clearly do....then what of conservative Republicans who voted against Obama, who don't want anything to do with his mandated agenda?
Well, their job is to stop Obama from doing the will of the people.
The "resistance" is calling....
Welcome to Obama’s nation...
The “transformational” figure who will “change the world” is now in charge, and he’s on a mission. Emboldened by an overwhelming electoral victory and a near-supermajority in Congress, President-elect
Obama and his allies are preparing to implement his liberal, “post-American” agenda. Simply put, what President-elect Obama and the Pelosi-Reid Congress have in store has the potential to rapidly move America to the socialist Left.
1 million citizens resisting...
Who can stop the Obama agenda? Only an unprecedented idea-based Resistance from freedom-loving citizens can prevent the full implementation of Obama’s march to the Left. That’s why Grassfire.org is seeking to identify and mobilize grassroots citizens who will Join The Resistance— an alliance of patriotic, resilient and determined conservatives who will not forsake their principles. Our goal? One million citizens joining together by Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009.
The Resistance 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.
Specifically, I Resist:
Socialistic wealth redistribution including any and all tax increases and big-government welfare programs. Silencing conservatives through the Fairness Doctrine and other efforts that restrict free speech.
Open border anarchy including amnesty for illegal aliens and promotion of multi-nation “unions”. Government-run health care that weakens our system and imposes more tax burdens on citizens.
Weakening of our military through rapid pullback from Iraq, defunding our troops and overall disarmament. Social liberalism including radical pro-abortion agenda, the end of marriage and the homosexual agenda.
Liberal court activism that undermines faith, family and liberties while expanding government control. Post-American globalismthat diminishes our global role and threatens our national sovereignty.
Environmental extremism, the CO2 tax, undermining coal and nuclear, and bans on exploration. Weakening the 2nd Amendment through unconstitutional gun laws that take away or penalize us for owning firearms and our right to defend our family, our property, and ourselves. Link
The "resistance" has signed up about a quarter million "patriotic, resilient, conservatives" thus far, the goal is one million.
The part I like the best is this..... "Only an unprecedented idea-based Resistance from freedom-loving citizens can prevent the full implementation of Obama’s march to the Left."
If the right had any good ideas, Americans would have voted for them. They don't and we didn't. The fact that conservative "ideas" have gone down in flames during Bush-Cheney....umm....hasn't helped much either. The "freedom-loving" spin is amusing as well. Freedom of conscience to deny the rights of others? Freedom of government to torture? Freedom for the executive branch to violate law?
Freedom to be intolerant? I have no idea what freedom these obstructionist wannabes are referring to.
Even the arch-conservative freak, Pat Robertson, has said that Obama has chosen a centrist cabinet which Robertson is "pleased" with....but to the "resistance" freaks, Obama will "march" us to the left.
Naturally, all this was to be expected. The only question remaining is whether or not the corrupt main media will assist the resistors by repeatedly echoing the objections of this "idea-based Resistance."
Smart money says they will.
