    No, that's not what I mean.

    I mean, do people resist a sudden conservative impulse that may come with age because it makes them feel as though their youth is slipping away? Like I said, just a thought.

    Re: My age is

    I credit Clinton for turning me conservative. I voted for him in 92, the last time I voted dem. Before that I barely paid attention to politics but considered myself dem because of the dems are for working man reps are for rich line of crap. Clinton era got me paying attention to politics and it suddenly dawned on me that the DNC sucked. They were complete BS pack of lies con men. That era was when logging was number one lib scare tactic instead of today’s global warming thing and logging industry was getting decimated. Clinton came along and said “I’ll reduce the cut but you will have a cut you can count on and industry will stabilize. Instead he reduced cut 70% and did nothing to stop enviro appeals as he said he would. Things got worse not better. This got my attention and it became obvious everything dems do and say is a complete lie. As I said, I haven’t voted dem since.

    Because their minds are currently open. Most people get older, their minds close, et voila; conservatives.

    And I thought it was because my fellow student or graduate student might be easily shepherded into a liberal viewpoint.

    But you said with age comes wisdom so you're a liberal, but now you're telling me that when people get older they have closed minds and turn into conservatives.
    Also, I'm 23 and a conservative, does this mean I'm wise beyond my years?

    I think the starting premise of people "being liberal until they gain wisdom, then they're conservatives" is ludicrous. Apparently I can't joke about it (witness: smileys), and you want to keep it serious. It's not serious. It's a slam conservatives use, and it's bull****.

    I don't joke about the feckless college students.

    But at some point, don't we all have to make up our minds? Make a decision? Come to some conclusion?

    And why do libs get to claim their minds are "open" as if they are willing to change, when in fact they're every bit as firm in their positions as any decent con?
