Poems For Conservatives
About the Book
Pat’s book “Poems For Conservatives” contains poems mostly in the political vein, most written the last couple of years as radicalism in Washington D. C. has shown it’s face in such a devastating manner. This type of Government is not what the people of America are about or what they stand for--the vote buying, back room deals, and lack of transparency. Pat's poems reveal her belief that this great country is being taken down a dangerous path, and needs to be stopped. It’s her opinion that if those presently in charge can get rid of the seniors through a Government run health care system that withholds valuable drugs and care and sends them to an early grave, they would have an open field to indoctrinate our youth who then would never know the great country previous generations have been privileged to know. Born into "humble beginnings" Pat has "always been proud of her country,” unlike Michele Obama who stated a number of times “for the first time in her adult life” she was “proud of her country.” The older generation is well aware of the price of freedom. They know about free enterprise, entrepreneurship, and dreaming big dreams. They know about failing. They know about determination. These things have made America great. Not the re-distribution of wealth, or big Government. Beliefs must be passed on about unlimited opportunities this country affords for those willing to work hard, pay their dues, and take advantage of the possibilities. Just get the Government out of the way. Pat feels we must pass on our Constitution, and values and pride in this country. We must pass on the America we have known. We can not allow any group to take away the rights our forefathers fought and died for and left in our care.
About the Author
Pat has been writing poems for over thirty five years. Most of her education came from the “School Of Hard Knocks.” Born in Texas, her birthplace was a small, modest home in the country with no inside bathroom, no electricity, or running water. From a very young age she lived by the belief that in America if you have determination, a burning desire, and are willing to sacrifice and work hard you can overcome poverty, and reach your goals. This was the journey she took. Her family moved to California and at age fourteen, she was working four hours a day, attending school four hours a day, graduating at age sixteen. She worked at various jobs including modeling in San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles. She worked in real estate over fifty one years. In spite of a number of different devastating losses, and in spite of all the ups and downs and struggles Pat has "always been proud of her country.” At voting age she registered as a Democrat but as she “matured” and her "eyes were opened," in 1972 she re-registered as a Republican. In following years she has been an active participant in the Republican Party. Some of her political poems written before the 2008 election were posted on the bulletin board at Habersham County Republican Headquarters. In 2008 her first poetry book called “The Climb Up Life’s Mountain” was published. She has written over eight hundred poems. Pat writes “Personalized Poetry.” She has had over twenty five poems read at memorial and funeral services. Published in www.poetry.com, she has had a number of articles and poems published in the “SACAR REALTOR GUIDE,” and the Real-Toro, her real estate board’s bulletin. Her poems have also been used in church bulletins and published in different news papers.
