My mother is a liberal hippie. My father is as conservative as they come. I was raised listening to both sides of the political debate through the years.
Overall my values are more conservative than liberal. Especially in values dealing with the economy and business. I believe in a free market, capitalistic, fiscally conservative economy.

For me there are a lot of influences, I grew up in California the San Francisco bay area. That area tends to be more liberal and therefor follows the Democratic party more closely. I also grew up in a family of strong Democrats. As an adult I studied both parties and felt that my own personal political philosophy also feel more in the range of Democrat. I now live in an area of California that is far more conservative and much stronger Republican. I also am a Christian and many in the Christian community are conservative Republicans. So my present voting has been influenced by those factors too. I still tend to vote and am registered Democrat, but it isn't automatic. I vote for the person I feel is most suited for the job.
