Have you ever changed your political stance? What changed your mind? What would change your mind?


I find that usually people are stuck to the political side they have chosen. Is it possible to change sides? What might be inspiring to one to go from republican to libertarian? Extreme left to the extreme right?

    I'm in the same boat with you - this sounds exactly like our story.

    It doesn't matter who you vote for, you always end up with some damn politician.

    I used to lean toward Democrats for "looking out for the little guys," but then I found that, in practice, it ends up hurting the little guys and more. Compassion never comes from the group -- the collective. Just look at Communist Russia

    I supported Obama, too, because of his silver-tongued rhetoric. But found him to be more of the same and accelerating toward nightmarish debt and destruction of America and Constitutional liberties.

    It's amazing how moving to a new country can change one's view of the world. I found the same when I lived in Wales for several years.
