    I have no statistics but I would assume MOST people form it AFTER they leave school. What about you ?

    I hated Republicans in my teens. Then you have to find a job and start paying taxes. I turned fiscally conservative in my late 20's.

    I grew up in a household that frowned on Republicans, so I always voted for the Democrat.

    I'm now registered as an Independent, because I'm not in love with either major party

    I was a radical leftist during my early college years, now I'm agnostic in all things. Growing old kinda does that. One reason why I cant stand either hillary or trump. The world makes you lose your innocence.

    Your situation and environment will always dictate your politics.

    In reality, most people aren't full on Democrats or Republicans. They pick their one strongest issue and vote with that party that thinks the same way.

    Eh doubtful. My dad was a hardcore republican growing up and I certainly didnt share his views. He would occasionally say things that would be considered "racist" and I was like huh WTF ?

    'If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain.'

    My mom was a hard core liberal and I listened to liberal radio people growing up and they often seemed to excuse certain things and behaviors from different people. I felt people should be treated the same regardless of their background. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Agnostic? Let me post the definition of agnostic: a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God.

    Is that what you really meant?

    working a real job generally wakes you up that liberalism is a farce.

    I've found that most people are liberals when they have no skin in the game -- no possessions, no real estate, etc. When there's something to lose, that's when some become more aware of different issues that may impact their lives.
