How is she not “right-wing”? She is a Republican and believes in our rights. That certainly sounds like a Conservative. Color of skin or ethnicity is irrelevant to one’s personal views, or should be anyway. People can and do grow and learn. My wife was not raised in a “Conservative” home, but she has learned through life experience and has moved politically to the Right.
My views on social issues have changed since I was young, but mostly have become more grounded in individual freedoms and limiting government and government programs that only continue the crisis and do nothing to help people become self-sufficient. Our Constitution does not guarantee equal results; it only espouses a belief that all men (people) are created equal. Neither does it grant pension benefits, health care, food and housing allotments, etc. We are a classless society and we have the ability and opportunity to work hard and become better-off.
