A mom, a double E and a witch walk into a bar…

So, my husband and I, while waiting for our dinner table in Northern California, decided to have a drink at the bar. A gentleman sat down next to us and started up a conversation. He asked me what I did for a living, and I let him know that after spending nearly 20 years in Silicon Valley, I had decided to take time off to raise my children. Now that my girls are both in college at fine institutions, I have decided to get more involved in politics because I am concerned about our nation. I have been volunteering for local conservatives running for office and have been active on this and other conservative websites while I decide what my next step will be. I asked him what he did, and he told me that he is a witch. Ok… so this is Northern California.

The conversation turned to religion and the witch asked me if I believed in God. He does, in fact, believe in a God, and, I told him so do I, though, frankly, that wasn’t always the case. He asked me why, and I responded that I believe in God because if I didn’t, then I wouldn’t believe in the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. I recently read the Patriots History of the US and quoted to him the beginning of the Declaration of Independence and let him know that if I didn’t believe in God, then I wouldn’t believe in the founding of our country and our liberties. The interesting part is that the other folks at this Northern California bar at first looked a little stunned, and then agreed with me. If we were, in fact, free people, then we were free because we were free UNDER GOD. I talked about how health care couldn’t be a right, since it meant, then, that somehow we would have to have healthcare magically given to us for free by doctors ( I used the stranded on a desert island example.) There were many nodding heads and smiles in this restaurant in one of the most progressive parts of our country.

Some of us are not active in politics, but we still make a difference by voting and encouraging others to vote for conservatives or conservative principles. Some of us help others to win office, and some of us actually run. Each of us on RedState, in our own way, across this great nation, are taking us back to our founding principles, to where we need to be as a nation. God bless us all and God Bless America, even the witches.
