Are you a democrat, republican or independent?

And what is your education level and where are you from/where do you live?? What political party are/did your parents identify with? What do you do for a living?
Are you very political, as in are you passionate about your beliefs?

I'm curious as to what leads us to our political beliefs.
I know I tend to get passionate but this is really not to bash... I am really curious as to what leads to such different core values and beliefs.
BTW.. in case you don't already know... I'm a very left leaning Democrat with 3 (don't ask, it's complicated) conservative parents. I'm a single mom, an HR Director of a nonprofit and I'm currently seeking my master's degree. I was born and raised and currently live in Connecticut.

  • Very liberal democrat. Dad is a dem, mom doesn't belong to any party. I'm a single mom, working on my BS in child psych (a little late but better late than never, right?). I work for a non-profit organization as an advocate for children and adults with special needs.

  • I am a conservative productionist

    Have a bac hin Criminal justice

    Mother old school democrat (before the progressives took over) but she is 92 and doesn't quite realize her party was hijacked although she is figuring it out now.

    Father was a republican business owner.

    And I am VERY passionate about my beliefs. The social issues I pay little attention to. I don't care if gays marry. I don't like abortion but have enough sense to know it will never go away., It is a dead issue. I am not against gays in the military. these issues are not the issues that are going to take down the country.

    I'm a libertarian (small-l), I'm registered Republican so that I can vote in the primaries, but I won't hesitate to vote 3rd party in the general election. I voted for Chuck Baldwin for President.

    And what is your education level and where are you from/where do you live??
    Associates Degree and training from the US Air Force in medical lab technology. I live in NM.

    What political party are/did your parents identify with?
    Both are Republican - my moms side are Democrats, my Dad side is Republican.

    What do you do for a living?
    I'm a SAHM

    Are you very political, as in are you passionate about your beliefs?
    Yup. I reserve the right to despise both side and I often do. I'll go after the right just as quickly as I will go after the left.

  • I am a registered Republican but my beliefs tend to sway more Libertarian (for those who don't know that is not the same as Liberal) these days. I am VERY passionate about my views and beliefs. I completed 2 years of college at a University and then went on to get specialized medical certifications. I worked in Hospitals-more specifically in ER's until I had my son and I am now a SAHM I have been married for just about 5 years. I was born and raised in Montana and now live in South Dakota. My parents are both Republicans.
