I think most Southerners start or Republican/Conservative because everyone copies their parent's/communities' views and values until they get a little older and start to think for themselves. Then the idealist kicks in and with it often comes progressivism. I know I was much more conservative when I was 16 than I was at 26. I wonder if I'll come full circle by the time i'm 60?

I disagree...most folks tend to be much more liberal when they're younger...heck, just look at the polls...unmarried people tend to vote Democrat and married tend to vote Republican.

I know when I was younger...college years...I was much-much more liberal in thinking.  It wasn't until I graduated from college...worked my ass off for several years...got married and had a child did I realize how absolutely flawed the liberal way of thinking truly is...and it's not just my opinion, I've had this talk with several close friends and we all see it this way.  My profession does nothing but bolster my views...seeing how entitlements have hamstrung so many people into a life of dependence is troubling.  

In a nutshell, younger folks, especially college students, living carefree...chasing poon non-stop (I do miss those days :) could care less, so...they're typically liberal...when they get out of school...get married...get mortgages...have children...they tend to care a little more about morals, society, the economy...hence, they tend to be more conservative in thinking.

no no man, we're talking younger as in early adolescent. Jacobp mentioned 12 and I mentioned 16. Yes I agree with you by college the liberalism and idealism kicks in, but I meant that we start conservative assuming that our surroundings as conservatives at those ages
