    You seem to have got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?
    Are you being serious? You said it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooo true that "as they've gotten older, their actual positions are mostly conservative, not liberal at all."

    I'm sure Churchill, if that is his quote, wasn't talking about not believing in global warming, paying women equally, or other generally sane ideas.

    What's funny is in my early 20s I also considered myself a liberal Democrat. But once you are willing to think these things through to their end results, and be honest with yourself?? For me anyways I ended up on the right.

    Everyone's different I suppose. For instance, I found myself only being more educated as I got older.

    Maybe you should go back to post 53 and show me this quote which you contribute to me.. Actually what I really said was " not so much anymore" and for me to say my sister in-law doesn't hold any liberal positions, is kinda funny... anyways I'm done, enjoy your day, its been fun.

    Couldn't agree more! And if we all held the same views, who would we argue with?.

    You can pretend you weren't espousing the old ignorant view that liberalism is an affliction of the young that wears off with age, but it was clearly what you said.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It wasn't Churchill, there's no record he ever actually said that. It's a common misattribution.
