My name is Nancy and I am one of twelve children. I am number six. I am fifth generation Hispanic American. I grew up in a little town called Belen, south of Albuquerque, NM.
My father worked for the railroad and we lived from paycheck to paycheck. My Parents were very hard working. We raised animals, grew our own vegetables, made our own clothes and lived modestly. My father traded vegetables for rice and beans and other commodities.
He was a very proud man and refused to get help from the government. As soon as we were able, we, the children had to carry our own weight. We were all put to work at an early age and all contributed to the family.
We were raised in a very traditional and conservative family. We were proud Democrats and we were brought up Catholic. I don’t believe I knew one Republican in our little town.
My childhood was very typical. I started working after high school. I worked for Federal Housing Administration, almost everyone I knew worked for the government. When I became a flight attendant my life took quite a turn. That is when my education began.
I married and held different jobs. We had two sons, I finished college and worked as a volunteer for many years.
I have truly been blessed in my life. I have a great husband, two fantastic sons, beautiful daughters-in-law and six incredible grandchildren. They are the light of our lives. For these things I thank the Lord.
I don’t know when my politics started to change, I made a concerted effort to be educated about current events in the United States and the world. My husband is a Republican, and never made an effort to change my thinking.
My conversion to the conservative Republican party has been gradual. I knew that my Christian values aligned more with the Republican party. I do believe that the Democratic party has lost all credibility. They have lost their way. I want the same opportunities for my grandchildren that were available to me. I don’t see that happening with the current state of our country.
During the last presidential election, while watching all the ‘fake news’, I knew I could do my small part to help educate Americans on the Red Counties in every state of the union. I came up with the idea of Red Patriot. Red being a symbol for the Republican party.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
God Bless You,
Nancy Founder of Red Patriot
