56. I completely understand what the problem is
I was forced to register Repub when I was 18 because I still lived at home. I voted straight Dem anyway (my father couldn't control that once I was in the voting booth.) I was kicked out of their house soon after for non-voting reasons, and I ignored politics for awhile. I re registered to vote in the early '90s as a Dem and I proudly showed off my voter card to my parents at their house. That pissed them off, and they were meaner to me after that.

My advise would be to switch parties (because you don't want to be a fake), but don't mention it to your parents.
