    What is some political position you have changed your mind about because of a discussion you had with someone else?

    For me, I would say stimulus spending. I used to think that it was ok, but I have come to realize that stimulus spending can't be used because our government has shown they will not use it properly or responsibly.

      CPR is wrong because somebody who did not know what they were doing killed somebody!

      Oh my goodness, I think this is such a great premise for a thread, but does it have to be political only?

      A poster on these forums (who has since deleted his account) was very pro-gun. I was very anti-gun. While I still lean towards gun-control, I am far more moderate. He made good points... when he wasn't being a defensive arse.

      I miss him muchly.

    Wait, never mind. My answer is political. When I was very young I would have thought voting republican was the best choice, but now I am much more open minded to voting for the best person for the job as opposed to their affiliation. It's a very simple notion, I know, but as we age, we mature... hopefully. smile

      I was a lot more liberal when I was younger following family tradition. But I have become more conservative as I get older and as I watch this country spiral out of control. It's not just politics either, look at the entertain world, the sub-standard schools. We have more tech than we can teach people how to use it...But that's just me.

        That's why I love the idea for this thread. In time, we usually change for the better (hopefully) and personal growth is such an interesting topic... especially b/c it takes humility to say, "I was wrong, but I'm learning."
