20. I never thought otherwise

As soon as I became politically aware when I was about 16-17, I was firmly on the Democratic/progressive side of the fence based on their stance for reproductive rights and LGBT rights and concern for all Americans, not just the privileged few. Plus, that was around the time that Republican Party began its decent into its xtian worshipping, hatred and vile nature under Gingrich/Limbaugh/Fox that was directed towards anybody that wasn't "one of them". Their constant vitriolic attacks on the Clintons disgusted me and turned me off to them too. George W. Bush's 8 year "Reign of Error" and scare-mongering further insured that I could never join their ranks.
