    Nope. I have eased back and forth on some issues but haven't really done a 180. I'm liberal on some issues and conservative on others. I don't believe in the Party system which is why I list myself as an Independant. People are just too varied to be subscribed to ONE party.

My views were almost parallel with those of the Calvinist theologion Rousas John Rushdoony, who I still regard as a rather interesting figure. My political apostasy was in many ways joined at the hip with my religious apostasy; I was a standard rightist "libertarian" as most people in the U.S. would define it, then was a social democrat, and eventually shifted into anarchism.

    Riiiight. Your willingness to engage in personal attacks tells everything that we need to know about how "reasonable" you are.

    Same here, although I started out a bit more to the right and have adjusted some of my social views after rejecting religion about 25 years ago. I'm still a somewhat right-leaning social moderate and a strong fiscal conservative, but I don't think I've ever done a 180 by any means. Maybe a 45.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I used to be an anarchocapitalist. My views softened somewhat as I neared adulthood and I considered the Libertarians an acceptable compromise solution.

    My views are now about as diametrically opposed to those ideologies as possible, even though I still have numerous agreements on individual positions.

    Re: Political 180

    I started out much more liberal when I first came to this board several years back. In time, my views have become hard right on some issues and moderately liberal on the others.

    It's all relative; Social democracy as you define it is not relatively moderate, considering that you consider Bernie Sanders, who is seen as something of an extremist, the only legitimate Social democrat in national American politics.

    But even that is certainly very moderate compared to both your original and current views.
