What do you think of people whose political views change? Do you think it is because they are realizing more about the world around them or do you think it is because they realized they were wrong in some way? Have your views changed over time and if so how did they change?
When I was 18 I was a Republican through and through. But that is because of the way I was raised. That was what the "right" thing to do was. Democrats were villified. After I left home and stared to build my own identity seperate from how I was raised I took a severely left slant. This was more because I was rebelling. In the past year my views have taken another turn and have switched to a more moderate libertarian view. With the current administration and the mindset of our current politicans I can't, with a clear mind, take sides anymore. I can't stand behind an ideology that has become very detached from how I identify myself as a citizen of this country. I see that Republican ideologies and the Republican platform has a lot to offer just as the Democratic platform does. There are also issues with both sides that I feel Libertarianism can fix.
So what about you? I am curious to know what some here have to say on a more personal level.
