Do you share the same political beliefs as your parents?

I don't, we are complete opposites. It's probably good that we live 900 miles apart, LOL.

  • Yes.My parents are deceased but they were also Democrats. We all were Democrats in the family and extended family. Everyone worked hard. My Uncle was a truck driver. My Aunt worked in a factory. My Dad was an accountant-- but when he was 16 in 1924 he quit school to help his Dad provide for the family.Then, in the 1930's, he went to night school and got his high school diploma, and to college to become an accountant. My Mom was a SAHM. Grandparents had their own farm. I don't know WHy people say that Democrats want the Government to give them everything....we never did.We took care of each other. We all worked. Never needed welfare.
    Okay, I will step off of my soap box now.

  • My parents are fiscally conservative, socially liberal and are Democrats who vote all over the board. I am very similar, although I am Indepen. My parents, their parents and all their sibs are/were  Democrats who have never taken a dime from anyone else. They all believe (d) in being independent, taking care of your own, working hard. Education stressed big time.
