Short story:

When I was 18, my father's family business was booming and we had more money than we could handle. My parents were big republicans and always voted for the party line. Because of that, I went to college as a republican conservative that just echoed the things I heard.

After taking political classes in college, meeting more intelligent and interesting people, I'm now the complete opposite. I consider myself overall democratic and liberal (even though I agree with the conservatives on immigration laws and such).

After the down economy was at its worst and the family business started to struggle, my family is far more left leaning than before.
