I am political, and I am Conservative, because in 2001 I was a scared 17 year old two hundred miles from home when terrorist flew planes into buildings and killed innocent people. After that, as the various news stories flashed, I saw suddenly a grown man, who wept for the lives lost. Prior to that I knew nothing about George Bush, only that he wouldn't damage the country as much as Gore would have. After that I saw a man who made me feel safe, when the rest of the world didn't make me feel that way. While Bush might not be the man I thought he was in 2001, he is the reason that I got involved in Politics, and the reason that I felt so strongly that the Conservatives had the right ideas, and not so much the liberals.
