Do you share similar beliefs to your parent(s)?

So what about you? Do your beliefs mirror your parents and/or the mature influences in your life? Or are you a self-made image of individuality? Is this a case of nature versus nurture?

i don't even share the beliefs of the woman that i chose to marry. just goes to show that people with opposing view points can get along.

I'm probably closer in opinion to my dad than I know. But I'll never know for sure because he barely talks seriously about some subjects.

My dad has come much further than my mom on alot of things. From forgiving his dad and his brother to understanding people that disagree with him in a much more sane way.
My mom is on a different orbit on things at times.
I have a lil of both but have cut my own path to some things.
Great question BTW

All in all this thread is really supposed to make you think about why you think a certain way, and where those beliefs came from. Not nearly enough people do that.

up until this past election i had never paid attention to politics of any kind, never had any kind of conversation with parentals about it, just wasnt a priority to me. this election, my mom rode me about registering to vote so i could "partake in this historical election". i registered on the last day possible, and had started paying a lil more attention to the debates and crap so when election rolled around i voted. mom called me later on to talk about it and thats when i found out she had just assumed that i voted republican. i was like "ma, i voted obama." Dead silence. "beth, are you joking". that was when i realized i was the black sheep. and i dont consider myself a "democrat" or really an anything. i just happened to like the democrat better. ANYWAYS. now, politics is def. a heated discussion with my WHOLE REPUBLICAN family always calling with every press conference, sending emails, blahblahblah. politics shmolitics.
So it's YOUR fault...

My dad and I have almost exact same view points. I remember back in the day he was very against NAFTA and being a young kid just watching the news I thought he was a moron. I now realize I was the moron and respect his ability to see through the lies.
I turned him on to Ron Paul and after getting over the neocon war hawk propaganda he is all about classical conservatism.
He is anti-france, where I am not, that is about all I can think of.

....LOL. uh okay. you cant blame the condition the "nation" is in on any one presidency just like you cant expect it to be cleaned up with any one presidency. i claim no fault. and i would revote obama again JUST to piss my momma off AGAIN. gets me outta alot more phone conversations now.
