Raised on a cattle ranch with a rebellious spirit

Have you ever thought about the saying 'the government we elect is the government we deserve'? Well, Kerry McQuisten, a staunch conservative and a resident of eastern Oregon, certainly did. Coming from a cattle ranch background, Kerry always had the thought, 'Well, I sure don’t deserve what we have now!' In 2021, Oregon had experienced almost four decades of Democrat rule with no separation of powers, and Governor Kate Brown's response to Covid only highlighted this fact.

Kerry decided to take matters into her own hands and ran for local office. To her surprise, she was elected as the Mayor of Baker City, a small town in the northeastern part of Oregon. Her unique stand as mayor brought her, her fellow councilors, and Baker City into the national spotlight, with coverage on Fox News.

A grassroots candidate for Governor

After receiving a groundswell of requests from around the state, Kerry decided to run as a true grassroots candidate on the Republican ticket for Governor of Oregon in the 2022 Primary Election. As a small-business owner and single mom, her campaign took her to all 36 counties in Oregon, bringing her into contact with influential figures such as NRA's Vice President Willes Lee, Dr. Kelli Ward, David Bossie, Eric Trump, and more!

But despite her efforts, Oregon's Republicans lost their best chance in decades to win back the governor's seat. In her book, 'The Government We Deserve,' Kerry shares the hard truths she learned from behind the political curtain. She aims to educate and prevent future losses like this from happening again. The question is, will people listen?

Exploring the swamp and its fighters

'The Government We Deserve' takes readers on a captivating ride through Oregon's political landscape. Kerry unveils the workings of the swamp, dirty lobbyists, corrupt media, push polls, pseudo patriots who aid the left, a voting infrastructure built for fraud, and voter apathy.

But the book isn't just about exposing the negatives; it also highlights some of the best, salt-of-the-Earth fighters Kerry had the privilege of meeting. These individuals are dedicated to making a difference and standing up against the status quo.

Written by Kerry McQuisten and published by Black Lyon Publishing, 'The Government We Deserve' offers an insider's perspective on Oregon politics and serves as a call to action for those who want to see real change in their government.
