    Re: Are You the Same Partisanship/ideology as Your Parents?

    these days, i'm pretty close. when i was in my right wing libertarian phase, i definitely wasn't.

    we're still not identical, but we agree on most issues. i feel like my own views are honed by following all of it so closely. they are probably smarter about it; they know everything that is going on, but they don't waste as much time as i do finding out everything as it happens. their way is probably healthier.

    That might just be because of his personal observations, Henrin.

    Completely agree with this. While the OP's question is a valid and interesting question, only asking in a somewhat isolated collection of "political groupies" isn't a realistic cross-section of society at large.

    Now, where would they ever get that idea?

    Anyway, as for me: I used to be more conservative and closer to my dad. As I have grown older, I have refined my ideals. Some conservative ideals I retain, some I have adjusted. For example, if he were still alive he would be a staunch supporter of the drug war, while I am a staunch opponent. My mom is non-political.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    There are times that that is good advice. As a blanket statement, it shouldn't apply. There's a time and a place for everything.

    Father was a hard core biggoted Republican, even though he was atheist.
    Mom was particularly political, but voted the way Dad told her to vote.

    I am what I am, mostly likely because of the way they were. I'm sure they don't appreciate it.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
