    I'm breaking the trend, because I'm 21 and I'm a conservative.

    Same as me, although I wasn't very politically aware for a lot of years. I just voted what the church said.

    I took serious time and pondered my liberal sentiments in my own personal and immediate life. I became dissatisfied with them.

    Yup. I had the opposite happen.

    I used to be a moderate. Then I got older and Bush became President.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Yeah, pretty much, but I did change my beliefs from left to the right when I was 17-18. Before that I just supported what my parents supported.

    I'm quite moderate and I despise Bush so moderate liberals in the US have no problems with me. The ones who dislike me are the socialists.

    I just noticed, you're another Kiwi!

    I figure politically alert is what actually matters, regardless of leanings.

    Oh yeah. Neither of them are native Kiwis i don't think. Camlon just told me he's a Euro, Bodhi is an American.
