Do you follow the same political beliefs as your parents/family or have you come to your own thoughts and ideas as an adult? Does this make things awkward if your beliefs are different than your parents/siblings/close family?
Good lord, no.
I grew up in a conservative Republican Christian family. The older members in my family are beyond help, they're set in their ways and won't budge. The younger (I'm talking under 30) people in my family are mostly apathetic, but a few of them can be quite abrasive in their opinions of me. I try to consider the source, especially when the cousins younger than me start spouting off.

Definitely not. In fact, my dad placed an urgent call and an email to beg me not to open the latest Obama-trashing email that he is so fond of, and erroneously sent to me. We have had so many disagreements over politics, are at such opposite ends that I've demanded that we never discuss politics, and I've admonished him for sending me those ridiculous emails. He sent one by mistake yesterday, and was in a panic that I might read it.

I would say yes. My parents are pretty liberal. I am probably the most liberal of all of my family.. We disagree on a few issues. Were on the same page for the most part.
