    So my question to you is: "Are You the Same Partisanship/ideology as Your Parents?"
    Such utter dogmatism as this runs against my nature.

    I think for myself instead of being so completely conformist that I align myself with a whole package of ready-made beliefs.

    Political views can be widely altered by personal experience, environment, social standards, and such.

    As for religious views, well, the reasons tend to vary, but being an ultra-religious parent and shoving their beliefs into every aspect of their children's lives might not be the best way to ensure they keep the faith.

    As for me, my dad is right libretarian, but with centrist leaning.

    My Mom is a Catholic, with social conservative views but more left leaning of fiscal views. (Finding a candidate she really likes is difficult)

    There's not really a yes/no answer for me, since you kind of asked two questions.
    The same partisanship? More or less.
    The same ideology? Not really.

    My parents are staunch Democrats, although my dad leans more Libertarian( He once told a poll worked when asked for party affiliation during a primary to "Kiss my ass. Put my down as Communist" ).

    My mom was whatever my dad was and my dad is a moron.
    He's a big government conservative, which means "boot everyone of welfare but don't touch my disability!!!"
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Im more similar to my dad on most things but economics and I agree with my Mom on very little, i would call my dad a liberal conservative and my mum conservative, however from what ia have gathered from my brother he is social liberal statist (no idea on economics). Both my parents have some libertarian sympathies but not many.
