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 family comes from Wilkes county, which has been Republican since Sherman marched through the Carolinas. When I voted none of the above in 2004, I might be the only member of my family who didn't vote for a republican presidential candidate in the last 30 years. :)

mostly.. My mom is a school teacher so a bit jaded, but can't see how so much of what is taught at public schools is total crap. Just too close to it I guess... She thinks Ron Paul accomplished nothing b/c he didn't win so that annoys me but other than that she is pretty down

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.

No no no. Lycanthrope would be a werewolf. Misanthrope would be someone who turns into a woman in the full moon light.

Never really got to know their details, but I don't remember my parents being into anything but local politics because their friends would always ask them to support one campaign or another. It was more about the people than the positions.

Not really...

But that's not to say that they weren't major factors in my beliefs. A great number of my beliefs can be traced back to a stand I took that was in deliberate opposition to what I thought my parents wanted me to believe.
