Dr.Angela Graham-West “I have lost nothing by evolving into a conservative and neither will you” The Journey from left to right

AW and AW 2013

Posted by  on September 8, 2013 – Dr. Angela Graham-West for Palm Beach County Tea Party

The Journey from Left to Right….

When Allen and I go out to parties, galas, and the like, people speak to him about conservative thinking. That is a given. He is deeply patriotic, deeply involved with the history of the country and very knowledgeable.

But….. after they speak with him, the conversation invariably turns to me. And…. it starts like this….”WHEN DID you BECOME conservative….” A girlfriend of mine who I have known since I was a child told me “its written all over your face…. people can tell..” OK, should I change my lipstick? (smile)

I was the quintessential student, loved school, fell in love with the university life — both in Europe and the US. It was intellectually stimulating and exciting. I truly understand when my daughter gives us 4 hours here and there during the school year. She is me — albeit with the “Conservative Chick” tee-shirt.

The University meant that I could be myself. The lover of documentaries, exhibitions and plays. I remember when Allen and I got married, the officer’s wives club had their meeting to welcome me. That was like fitting a round peg (me) into a square hole (them). You see, one faces a big penalty for non-conformance in such groups. I knew how to sew well because my grandmother owned a business which involved making high quality dresses for the top US stores so she taught me. BUT the officer’s wives were into “crafts” so I tried it. Let me tell you that cross stitch is not only boring, it is tedious. very….. One of the other Ph.D. students came from Utah where she told me that her mother was a whiz at embroidery and cross stitch. Her mother sent an 89 percent completed a piece and I finished the trim in front of my peers in the OWC. I still have the piece. It says “Officers’ Wives — the toughest job in the military”. It had all of the flourishes, my friend’s mother is a genious and I was accepted at least for a short while.

At that time — late 80′s to the 90′s the left pretty much solidified their dominance in University thought and hires. They replaced all of the stuffy professors in suits with conservative ways with “cool professors” who sat on the lawns, smoked weed and had many neurotic ticks. But they were creative and exciting. They also did not have preconceived notions about women, minorities, gays and so forth. Believe me, I was told by one “conservative” professor that “women can not write nor do arithmetic — much less BLACK women.” He was able to grade any paper I wrote, no matter how long, in a matter of 3 – 5 minutes. He gave me a “B” and wrote a note that he was being “generous”. Another, was the chair of one of the large departments, he was known to hire only attractive girls with his department budget, I felt “happy” that I was one of the chosen. Then, I came down with the flu, showed up to work looking pretty run down for a week and he jokingly said —- “If you don’t get your act together and stop dragging in here, I going to replace you.” And so on and so forth ….The “Stinkin’ Thinkin’” crew had to GO.

The Need for Boots on the Ground for Rep Allen West is NOW! We Need You TODAY!

Dear Friend,

We are in need of more and more volunteers to make phone calls and walk door to door.

This Thursday, Friday and Saturday we are looking to have shifts covered by volunteers from 9am-1pm, 1pm-5pm and 5pm-9pm.  This will include volunteers to make calls from the West Palm Beach Victory Office as well as walk door to door.  For door to door efforts, we are asking volunteers to meet at the West Palm Beach Victory Office to pick up walk books.

We are looking to continue this work on Sunday during 1PM-5PM

Monday we will again need volunteers 9am-1pm, 1pm-5pm and 5pm-9pm.

This will be one big push to increase the turnout in the primary election.  We need as many volunteers as we can possibly get.  My days will be filled with volunteer recruitment calls and it would be a tremendous help if you can contact the people you know as well.

If you are able to, please encourage people to help out with these efforts.  I will be at the West Palm Beach Office on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to help with these efforts.

We also want to have 4 yard signs at every single voting location in the district to be put out the night before the election.  If we can get people to help drive around and place them at polling locations in their area, I will deliver the signs to them as well as a list of polling places in their community.  The more the better.  I will be putting signs at every polling location the night before that we can not get covered by a volunteer, so the more help we can get the better.

Thank you for all of your help.
