Response to Diclotican (Reply #35)

58. Thank you

I am certain life experience, education and his ever-evolving mind will take care of this-- he works a minimum wage job. My son is vey inquisitive. He certainly has strong views on gun control which don't jibe with the libertarian stand. He is also pro equal/civil rights. I don't know how libertarian he will be once pot is legalized. I think all college students try on different philosophies as they develop. I know I went through a short period of conservatism, at least I thought it was--more along the lines of Teddy Roosevelt though (conservation of natural resources, not hating people because they don't pray to a cross). I think I went through that because of my strong feelings about keeping my family intact as I grew up in divorced homes and believing that people often don't try hard enough to keep things together or have unrealistic expectations. But I became quickly disenamored with what came to be popular conservative thought and behavior and I didn't care for the meanness and reflexive attitudes.
