American Tradition Partnership delivers more than 25,000 petition signatures to Secretary Clinton

Grassroots group, allies tally support from a total of 750,000 Americans

WASHINGTON – The nation’s largest grassroots advocate of rational energy policies stepped up pressure on the Obama administration Monday to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, dropping more than 25,000 signatures supporting the project in the office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“Our message is loud and clear.  More jobs, lower gas prices,” said American Tradition Partnership Executive Director Donald Ferguson.  “People are sick of environmentalists targeting jobs for elimination.   The safe, clean Keystone XL pipeline creates as many as 342,000 jobs and provides 700,000 barrels of oil a day.”

“The environmentalist movement is a false front funded and created by the multi-million dollar green lobby.  American Tradition Partnership is a real, and fast growing, nationwide grassroots movement.  We’re people-powered,” said Ferguson.

ATP organized and mobilized a nationwide grassroots movement in support of the Keystone pipeline through FuelingJobs.com, a cutting edge interactive website utilizing social media, grassroots networking and interactive voting.  FuelingJobs.com is a project of American Tradition Partnership (ATP,) the nation’s largest and fastest growing advocate of rational, pro-growth energy policies.  ATP is supported entirely by grassroots members.

“No one else is doing this,” said Ferguson. “Our cutting-edge technology is what makes American Tradition Partnership the nation’s most effective grassroots advocate of pro-jobs energy policies.”

“The Keystone pipeline creates jobs and lowers consumers prices, and it’s all privately funded,” said Ferguson. “We can create jobs without the illegal Solyndra scandals and other fake ‘green jobs’ scams.”

American Tradition Partnership and its allies collected signatures from 750,000 Americans urging the Obama administration to approve the pipeline.  That is just a fraction of the total number of signatures, comments and petitions in support of the project.

“Americans and Canadians are united in support of this safe, clean energy and jobs project,” said Ferguson. “President Obama would be smart to listen to the will of the people, not the extremist demands of the environmentalists who are growing wealthy off taxpayer bailouts.”
