Same here. I'm completely conservative now, having been librul in my youth. -CC

IMHO, you ought to find that reassuring. It's a very real possibility that, in the long run, your son will take the same path as you did.--Andrew

Tends to be a pattern. Happens the other other way too. I learned last week that a network support guy in our office grew up in a conservative, Christian Catholic household. Now he is an extreme leftwinger and an athiest.

I'm pretty sure I've always been conservative oriented. But it really hit home when I was a Freshman and Sophomore. Being small and skinny, I was bullied by rednecks and minorities. Since I was semi abused by my dad, I had very low self-esteam and to a bully, it was like a target on my back.

After I mustered the courage to bust a bully in the mouth during football practice at the beginning of my Junior year, things turned around quickly for me. I became pretty aggressive against bullies. As I got into college, it eventually turned into a conservative mindset against liberal a$$holes that victimized criminals, allowing them back on the streets to hurt more people.
