    Re: Age vs Political Idilogy

    I like to think of myself as a fiscal conservative, I agree taxes are necessary,
    the government should agree to spend my money as carefully as I would spend it myself.
    I don't think anyone should live beyond their means, and our government should not ether.
    For Social issues, not a government role to restrict peoples freedoms, especially if it costs money!

    I'm 34 and libertarian. Was more of a conservative in my teens and early 20s, but eventually grew more liberal socially.

    I'll never be a liberal. Multiple business degrees will anchor that into place.

    Odd, there's only two choices, yet many different political ideologies.

    Re: Age vs Political Idilogy

    I think the reason many of us, myself included, get more socially liberal as we get older is because we gain more and more independence as we get older. We learn to think on our own, not follow the pack, and we stop caring what other's think. We realize that others are actually trying to tell us how to think and what we can believe after we've spent so many years going through tough times and many failures to learn where we stand. We don't want to spend that personal capital on what basically equates to growing up only to have some douche in a big building who's never met us think he can tell us he knows better for us that we do.

    Picking a political philosophy is a lot like picking tomatoes: You have to stoop or bend over to pick one.

    Re: Age vs Political Idilogy

    20s. I've noticed I've become less democratic and more elitist and authoritarian in some ways (in some limited ways, what late 18th and 19th century conservatives used to find as more comfortable), at the same time that I embrace a fair bit of late 20th century Left-wing thought without the socialist pretensions. So all of this mixes into a big ball with the mid-20th century liberalism I have....and out I come.

    None of the choices fit me, shame.
