Common sense conservatives have been joined together by common principles, among which are a respect for life, love of country, commitment to the Constitution, and belief in fiscal restraint. Those of us who support Governor Palin have found ourselves united also by a determination to defend her record and character against the onslaught of personal attacks, false narratives, and outright lies. Since 2008, a core of supporters have fought back against every attempt to trivialize her influence and remove her from the forefront of American political life. Many have risen to the occasion to set the record straight. Citizen journalists have led the charge, debunking fiction while disseminating fact.
Chuck Heath, Sr. and Chuck Heath, Jr. have given us something that will help in our goal to spread the truth of who Governor Palin really is. The Governor's father and brother wrote Our Sarah: Made in Alaska, a book that allows us to better understand her upbringing, her work ethic, and her political career. They share the adventures of an ordinary family whose life experiences helped produce someone doing extraordinary things.
Our Sarah serves, not only as an entertaining account of a family forging their way in the Last Frontier, but as a tool to aid in putting the truth front and center. Unfortunately, haters are hell-bent on hating, a fact which is not likely to change. They not only take to social media like Twitter and Facebook to spew their vile, or write books citing unnamed sources to cast aspersions, they go about seeking ways to override every vestige of positive news about Governor Palin. Since the Heaths released their book, some have written reviews of it for the purpose of continuing their anti-Palin campaign.
Here's a sample:
* EW. EW. EW. EW. EW. EW. EW. EW. EW. EW. EWWWWWWW!
Yuckity yuck yuck.
I'd rather watch my mom beg for mercy than read this book.
This just exemplifies the nature of the Palin/Heath family. Do or say anything to make money. Sarah did and got millions, why shouldn't Daddy and big brother? Sure beats having integrity. Her star has not only faded but is burning out, what better way to attempt to re-ignite it? She has nothing else to say that, when put in book form, would sell, most especially considering what a failure her "America By Heart" was. The apple doesn't...well you know the rest
Why are you given this 5 stars when you haven't read it yet? Duh! Just the type of person I would expect to be a Sarah fan. No one is interested in the Palin's anymore & haven't been in a few years except for the occassional laugh factor, that's why this new release is ranked at #3,800.
There are also many positive comments out there. Here are a couple from Amazon:
I read the entire book in one sitting and wanted more. This book is not just setting the record straight, but has great Alaskan stories that bring home why Alaska is called " The Last Frontier". Sarah's brother, and dad especially seem to be characters, the type of folks that you could sit and listen to tell stories for hours. I laughed out loud at some of these stories and was touched by others. Really, a well-written book- the only downside that it wasn't longer.
With down home folksiness that epitomizes the parents of Governor Palin , Chuck Heath tells the story of an incredible state ; an unforgettable family and a remarkable daughter---Governor Sarah Palin.
The only review on Barnes & Noble is the one I submitted.
We need more of these positive, truthful comments to push back against the negative ones.
In the interest of our ongoing effort to fight the smears and right the wrongs, would you consider going to these sites, signing up, and posting your comments about Our Sarah: Made in Alaska? You can also rate the book.
I've heard many people praise this new book, and it's enjoying success on Amazon.com. Let's not just read the book, go to our favorite website, and talk amongst "our own," however. Won't you consider leaving your mark for all to see? This is yet another way to help Governor Palin and to stand up for the truth. The critics, most of whom, I'd venture to say, have not even read the book, are counting on us to remain silent while they loudly proclaim falsehoods and discourage others from reading the true account of Governor Palin's life and character. Let's meet them where they are.
Please go to the Our Sarah: Made in Alaska page at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and any other place you find that allows a comment or review. I've already done the same.
Standing up for Governor Palin is what we do, and this is just another way to accomplish that. Our work continues. Can the Palins and Heaths count on you?
