That’s right. All of my friends, my family, and my teachers think I’m a conservative.
Many of you know me as the punk left-wing kid… but apparently you’ve converted me. I argue for the free market, I decry carbon taxes and the Kyoto treaty, and I am now opposed to moving towards socialist policy.
I’m still a social liberal, and I still believe the Iraq War was unjust and we were wrong to invade, and I still hate Fox News. And, unlike many of you, I don’t believe ‘liberals’ are control freaks who want to control us all. I see where they’re coming from, especially because my ENTIRE family and group of friends (with VERY little exception) are all very, very liberal, to the point of socialist thought.
I can’t help but think so many of the things I used to think about Republicans are ridiculous and shallow. However, I still don’t consider myself a Republican… however I’m no where near being a Democrat anymore.
Now, when me and my parents talk politics, I can’t help but FACEPALM about their misconceived notions about government, the economy, and especially their view of the GOP as compared to the Democrats.
Thanks T-Nation. You’ve destroyed by political identity -_-;[/quote]
Actually, it just shows you have a brain. That thoughts can evolve. You rise above the muckity-muck who don’t even think about what they believe they just walk around like zombies.
For example, We have friends of ours, she’s from Boston. In her family tradition, you’re from Boston so you would die for the sanctity of the Red Sox and you vote democrat. That’s it. Forget the fact that he democratic party is diametrically opposed to much of the things she actually believes in, as she states in casual conversation. It doesn’t matter she votes democrat because that’s what her family does. Yes, it is idiotic, but that is the end all and be all. No thinking, just nodding like a bobble-head and fulfilling the duty to her family crest.
I am neither republican or democrat or libertarian for that matter (to restrictive). I am just Pat(pbum), I have liberal views I have conservative views and I views that are neither.
My advice, don’t subscribe to a party or ideology they will only hold you down.
My Favorite president: Thomas Jefferson. Look him up, he is a liberty guy to the extreme…You’ll like him. I’d make him king.
Hey, maybe we should start the Jeffersonian Party. We’ll have middle finger as our symbol instead of a donkey or elephant; I think Jefferson would have liked that.
