I have seen this in many people I know, yet for me it was the opposite.
I was raised by a couple pretty staunch conservative Republicans. So I really had the idea that liberals were all a bunch of tree-hugging hippies.
I have grown so much personally over the years, I guess I find myself in a place where I am more of a centrist.
I wish I could talk politics with my dad, but after I told him what I felt about Sarah Palin, he kinda thinks I'm a hippie now and doesn't engage me
in political discussions. Probably for the best.
I sure hope people change with experience and age, otherwise you are missing the point.
Good Thread by the way. S&F.
