    I changed it to Moderate because I don't buy into many of our conservative politicians' mindsets. I think many of them have gone to the extreme.

    No. My parents' ideology is the same as mine.

    I voted yes because we are now but when I was growing up they were both die hard, hard core union democrats. They changed their registration about 11-12 years ago. I mother actually feels guilt for the collective bargaining that took place on her behalf for the taxpayer dime.

    oh, noooooo. My parents thought Bush was the best President ever. I never heard them talk politics until the Bush Administration.

    As far as the rest of the ideology, I am similar but only in that I am a Christian. They are an extremely hard-core religion where the women only wear dresses and wear no makeup, and the men have no facial hair. I believe in God, the Father, but believe that I don't have to go through what they are going through just to be able to be a Christian.
