Some 25 years ago, I changed my life.
A visit inside a church opened my eyes to the destructive life I was living, financed by welfare checks generously provided by American taxpayers.
I got off welfare, went to work, got politically active and became a Republican. I didn’t become a Republican because of what the party looked like. I became a Republican because of what the party stood for: individual freedom, traditional values, with a view that government’s role is to protect our freedom at home and abroad.
