Standing against big government and for the people!
Patriot Action Network (formerly Patriotic Resistance/Resistnet.com) is the official social network of Grassfire Nation. PAN is a place where citizens can resist — in a peaceful, patriotic way — the efforts to move our nation away from our heritage of individual liberties toward “brave new world” of collectivism. PAN is designed to give citizens a new level of networking resources to organize the Tea Party/Conservative Movement.
Steve Elliott leads Grassfire Nation and is a nationally recognized internet communications specialist and conservative grassroots leader. Steve launched the concept of Grassfire in 2000 and today heads up Grassfire Nation, one of the nation's largest growing online grassroots citizen networks with over one million active team members.
Now the legacy of Grassfire continues through Grassfire Nation, a division of Grassfire Action, a privately held internet activism services organization that provides news, information and grassroots activism services to individuals and organizations. We seek to provide a wide array of services to the Grassfire Nation so YOU can take action.
These services include petitions, information, resources and practical ways for you to take a stand on key issues and help expand your impact in the political arena. Through Grassfire Nation our central focus is YOU, the grassroots conservative.
PAN is designed to be the social networking platform for Grassfire Nation and citizens who oppose the rising tide of socialism. This platform is designed to provide a place for grassroots conservative citizen-patriots to network and develop strategies and action items to restore nation to limited government.
WHAT IS THE “NO TOLERANCE” POLICY?
Every PAN member is required to consent to a "No Tolerance" policy which states:
I affirm that Patriot Action Network is for principled, patriotic resistance to Barack Obama's ideology and agenda and is not a forum for personal attacks, lewd or profane language, or militancy against Barack Obama or others. As such, I accept Patriot Action Network's strict No Tolerance policy and will not make inappropriate postings. I understand that such postings will be removed and members responsible will be banned without further notice. I also will report such postings to the site Administrator.
WHAT IS THE SPECIFIC PLAN FOR PAN?
We believe our plan to "Resist, Rebuild, Restore" provides the broad framework around which to build a Patriotic Resistance that can, in the long term, turn back the move toward statism. This broad structure is like an endoskeleton (an internal structure) which will allow the Patriotic Resistance to grow and develop organically as opposed to an exoskeleton which would limit growth. Thus, we are currently focusing on Resisting because we believe a firm patriotic resistance will cause a broad coalition of grassroots Americans to unite around a common goal of stopping the statist agenda. From this new found unity, we will rebuild and restore. The Resistance, if done properly, will create the structure and foundation for rebuilding the conservative movement and restoring constitutional leadership to our society.
Here on PAN our goal is to give concerned citizens both a forum for ideas and a practical way to get involved. Ideally, anyone who is willing to invest their time in advancing this patriotic, idea-based resistance to this new wave of socialism would be able to contribute through PAN.
Already, the Resistance is developing. Hundreds of thousands are signing the Patriotic Resistance petition. Tens of thousands are joining together on Patriot Action Network. Let’s keep working together to restore our great country to the basic foundation upon which our country was framed.
PAN desires to be a platform for any and all patriotic conservatives to network, share information and mobilize. Thus, the network is in no way limited to those who are part of Grassfire Nation. In fact, we often feature the efforts of other organizations who are working to turn back the tide of statism.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY FOR MEMBERS TO HELP?
PAN is organized around State Groups. These groups are the structural frame around which we can communicate and take action. Each State Group page is organized like its own mini social network with the ability to provide custom resources and social networking tools. Step One is to join your State Group. Network within this group and you can even become one of the Administrators for your state group.

PAN is operated by grassroots action. We will provide opportunities for those who want to financially support this website.
