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.

Dad was a believer, and a PO'd white trash conservative Republican.
Mom is a believer, and an aging hippie liberal douche.

I'm an Atheist and a Libertarian.

So nope, not really.

We didn't talk politics when I was a kid. But I always knew how the folks voted. I'd say my dad and I share a lot of political views, but mom isn't that savvy. As for my kids, put it like this: When small kids insult other kids with "poopie head, dum-dum...etc." My oldest son (who is six) will call you a "democrat"...Sometimes it will be "retarded democrat" but overall, to him, that's the worst thing he can call you...It makes his papa proud!
