Sarah Palin's New Book--"America By Heart"Posted Friday, January 7, 2011, at 12:57 PM
Going Back To The Foundation For Which This Country Was Created
Below is some information from her new book that I feel, really hits home and sums it up.
"I mention to the crowd that, this year, the Tax Day that matters isn't April 15, but April 9. That's the day the average American worker finally earns enough to pay his or her federal and state taxes, which means that the average American spends the first ninety-nine days of the year working for the government." (Page xi)
So, do the math MH blog readers. Most of us spend nearly 1/3 of the year working to PAY TAXES and support a Government that does NOT support us, as Americans! Are we nuts????????
"What I've learned from all this traveling and meeting and talking and reading is this: the spark of patriotic indignation that inspired the Americans who fought for our freedom and independence has been ignited once again! Americans are reawakening to the ideas, the principles, the habits of the heart, and disciplines of the mind that made America great. This isn't a political awakening. It's an AMERICAN (my emphasis) awakening. It's coming from real people---not politicos or inside the-Beltway types. These are the Americans who grow our food, teach our children, run our small businesses, help out those less fortunate, and fight our wars. They've seen what is happening in America, so they've decided to get involved. They feel like they're losing something good and fundamental about their country, so they've decided to take it back, because they love this country and are proud to be Americans!" (Page xiii)
"I knew it was time to ask: Who are these participants? And I realized that the Tea Partiers ARE my uncle Ron and Aunt Kate: normal Americans who haven't necessarily been involved in national politics before but are turned on to this movement because they love America and they don't like what they see happening to her. They're so concerned about the path we're on that they've decided to get involved. And believe me; they may not have done this two years ago. But they're doing it today."
"But here is what you'll learn if you'll take the time to go out and see this big, beautiful country: Americans still "cling" (to use a word that's been used before) to our founding values. We don't want a fundamental transformation. America has real problems---real ones. People are hurting and out of work. Families are struggling to pay their bills and save for their future. But what's wrong with America isn't that we're America. Our country doesn't need to change to get us back on track. It's our leadership and political focus that need to change." (Page xv)
I have not read the entire book yet, however, in my opinion, Sarah's second book is better than her first. It gives more insight to the fact that Sarah Palin is a thinker---a smart, American woman! She is strong and could care less what the folks in DC think of her.
Many want to knock her because she left her office in Alaska in the middle of her term. Well, she had her reasons---right or wrong and not for any of us to judge. Had she remained in office, people would be knocking her for collecting a pay check while she was on the road (just like most of our elected folks do while they are in office). Sarah Palin, in my opinion, wants to be more than "Alaska's Sarah"---she wants to be "America's Sarah!" The voice of reason and common sense when this country is going right down the tubes with the help of our President. Why is it wrong to have spirit in America?
The folks who speak so harshly of Sarah may not admit it but she makes more sense than our President at this point (IMHO). Those of you who voted for the other guy are starting to see the light...YOU SHOULD HAVE VOTED FOR THE OTHER GUY!
Just my two cents. I hope some of you will take the time to read her book. She may see Russia from her window but I see the next election from mine (taken from her book---it was from a sign at a rally).
As always, enjoy.

I have lived in Mountain Home for over 11 years now. I love to be outdoors in wide open spaces (as long as it does not involve camping...in a tent and an out house). I dislike Government waste/abuse of tax dollars and "sky is the limit" spending by those that we elect to represent "us." I value free speech when what is stated is factual (as opposed to lies, gossip and un-truths). I love the Chicago White Sox (I never said I was perfect) and the Broncos are okay too! I am 38 years old and married to a guy who is active duty USAF (and a Cubs fan...he is the "perfect" one). I am anti-nuclear and against further desecration of our planet with waste that we can do little to nothing with. If you dislike blunt, this is not the blog for you. Enjoy!
