    Basically, this.
    My dad is probably the main reason why I'm even into politics.
    My mom has mostly the same views as him, but is mostly apolitical.

    My own parents were conservatives who turned liberal due to personal circumstances they experienced with our family. I started making the opposite track, moving liberal to more conservative. With regard to specific political positions and cultural issues, for the most part we are quite similar, but there are issues that spring up that show our different outlooks.
