Author’s note: Occassionally, I “borrow” a feature from Sykes Writes that Charlie Sykes calls the “Hot Read”. It is something that I honestly believe deserves to be read in full.
I cannot say enough how honored I am to have met Anita MonCrief, first at RightOnline in Pittsburgh in August, then again at the Defending the American Dream Summit last weekend. She is as down-to-earth as can be even after she became a main target of the Left for abandoning them and blowing one of the first whistles on ACORN.
She wrote down a brief history of her journey from being a liberal to a self-thinking person. The close:
Putting political ideology aside for a moment, I will tell anyone that there has been a certain amount of inner peace that I have never had before and I have noticed more harmony in my family. For the first time in my adult life I can honestly say that I am not at war with myself or the world. I never knew that by changing my political beliefs that I would find my faith, change the course of my life and end a self destructive pattern of victimhood.
