“I was raised a Democrat. The only thing more evil than Satan was a Republican in my home. There were no choices to be made in voting … straight Democrat Party line was the only choice.”
KrisAnne Hall, a former Democrat and pro-choice advocate, now travels across the nation to teach the foundational principles of liberty and our constitutional republic.
In her op-ed feature posted in the Western Journal, Hall talks about her past decisions and the eye-opening liberation she felt when she walked away from a libertarian lifestyle.
“I was not born a constitutionalist. I did not live my life with an inherent understanding of liberty and what is necessary to defend it. I was not raised a Christian.
“I believed government’s duty and purpose was to be a provider for the people. I supported programs that would give the government more control over the people. I even believed a ‘One World Government’ was the best way to go to ensure ‘global peace.’”
“I supported abortion and often openly condemned others for being pro-life. I have argued with abortion protesters on street corners and called them names that I am not proud of.
“I was not born with the knowledge that I have now. I did not wake up one morning with a divine epiphany. I traveled a long road. I learned some hard and painful lessons. My beliefs were challenged, and I came to know the truth.”
Hall talks about her life before she realized the “truth,” and became a Christian and a believer in good.
“I am able to stand firm on what I believe because I have discovered the difference between truth and lies. I am able to defend the truth because I walked the path.
“I can show you my path of discovery, and to be guaranteed it is not tied to any political motivation or personal gain … unless you call the liberation that comes from knowing the truth in the face of lies, a personal gain.”
She discusses the importance of holding on to those who are “hostile to the truth” and not giving up, for it is our “obligation to bring the truth.”
“When truth is the enemy or the cause of a hostile response, you know for sure that someone is afraid they are believing lies! Their foundation is being rocked, so keep on rocking! Keep shining that light. Keep walking a consistent walk.
“Remember, we all had to wake up somehow. All you have to do is take the first step to truth — and then walk away from the lies.”
