My Early Beginnings as A Conservative

“Someone wanted to know why I am a conservative and so I decided to take the time to explain to people how I came about to believe what I believe….As a young girl I grew up in a Pentecostal church where I found my faith. My parents were Democrats,  and as I matured,  I noticed something disturbing.  My religious beliefs were in major conflict with my parent’s political stance. My parents never really discussed politics, but just proclaimed they were Democrats.

One day I was talking on-line to a friend, and she told me that she had never met such a passionate conservative. I was baffled by this,  because I was told blacks were only Democrats.  To be associated with any other party was unheard of to me and foreign in concept.  I did some research and to my shock and pleasant surprise, there were other black conservatives…people who believed as I believed. When I revealed this to those around me, I was saddened and dismayed when I was called a self hater and sell out. I did not understand why being outside their political fold made me any of these things.  But then through prayer and through like-minded people, I was blessed to meet along my journey, I learned to accept who I was. I embraced my beliefs and to this day I continue to stand by them.

My grandmother use to tell me that if you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything. I believe that whole heartily.”

  1. It takes courage to come to a complete turn around one’s belief in something as close and personal as politics. Dear lady I hope that you will always remember that no political party is perfect. They have their good times and bad but what I have found is that the Democrat party has had a continuing run of denying others freedom from the days of the nation’s founding to present. If you would, I’d like to invite you to my blog site where I placed a rather intensive argument for how and what the Democrat party has been up to for over 200 years. I think you will find it explains a lot about them, that so many who still follow it should know but will never be exposed to by academia, and the liberal media.
