    Have Any of Your Views Changed Since Being a Member of DP?

    Have any of your political views changed since being a member of Debate Politics? If so, what views have changed and in what way have they changed?

    For me it would be the 2nd Amendment. Believe it or not, I'm a much bigger proponent of the 2nd Amendment and the right to bear arms than I was before.

    Mine haven't at all. In fact, I keep finding less of a need to change them, as no one here has been able to sufficiently challenge them

    No, it hasn't changed mine at all. In fact, since it is has forced me to research more and more in different areas making up my viewpoint, I am even more strongly supportive of that viewpoint. While it hasn't really changed by views, it has made me strengthen my views in some areas where I previously only had minor interest.

    Yes, but not because of anything that I've read on here.


    This forum has way too many personal attacks.

    In several ways:


    • One, I've become ProLife with limits (on my own sensibilities). And that it's stupid to argue for or against since it is the law.
    • I have also come to the conclusion that it makes not one little twit who is President of the United States. The only important thing is that we don't have a President and both chambers of the same party.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Yes, but not really as a result of anything that has been said here.

    some of my views have evolved. for example, i see the economic malaise in terms of a global progression to a more technology dependent post labor economy rather than just as an outsourcing problem.

    Yes very little. Very little about how to implement socialism in AMerica.

    My opinions havent changed but I'm still new, and I am always open to different opinions. Over seven years I went from Republican to anti-neocon Republican to libertarian to geolibertarian/left libertarian.

    My views toward liberals have changed from dislike to despise.
