The personal blog of Teri Christoph, co-founder of Smart Girl Politics.

A conservative swimming in the increasingly red waters of Northern Virginia.

I was raised in a large Irish Catholic family of JFK Democrats.

Being raised Catholic, I tended to be a bleeding heart liberal in my younger years. Then I grew up.

I now lean strongly to the right. I believe in the sanctity of life, personal responsibility, family values, free markets, strong national defense, and limited government.

Please feel free to leave a comment. But I respectfully ask that you provide facts to back up your argument. Debates based on feelings tend to go nowhere, so let’s stick with the facts.
