Her own Wikipedia page shows her career she wasn’t conservative. Until she was. She lacks credibility and only tweets conservative taking points. She is being used and will be tossed aside when she is no longer needed in my opinion. She has a right to her views and people have the right to listen to her or not. In my opinion her biggest qualification that makes her relative is that she’s black. Other than that she would be useless to the right.
I don't disagree with that, and neither does she. She admits she was a liberal and finally "woke up". Ronald Reagan was the same, was a democrat and switch when he realized things weren't right with the democratic party.
Shoot, my grandpa who just passed away last year at 86 years old. He voted democrat his whole life until just the last 2 POTUS elections, his own words were "they aren't about freedom of speech and helping the working people anymore, they are all about socialism and calling people who aren't with them racists".
So yes, people switch, that wasn't my point. My point was that she switched well before Turning Point. By asserting that she switched sides just for money is a little presumptuous. Do you believe Reagan switched sides for money? Power? Or can people switch sides just because they gain new information and change their minds?
I used to think libertarians were loons, then I actually read more information on them when Ron Paul actually made the most sense in the RNC debates. Once I looked into them I realized I was wrong and fell in line more with the libertarian view point than the Republican.
