Response to radical noodle (Reply #9)

11. Thanks

Yeah..growing up Dad was pretty Libertarian-leaning and used to say "How did I get two such liberal kids?" to which we always used to reply, "You taught us to think!"

That was the truth. At dinner, he used to ask us our opinions about current events. He never told us whether they were "right" or "wrong" but he did expect us to tell us "why" we thought what we did. He wanted us to defend how we reached our decision.

Once he retired and had more time to listen to and process news he became more liberal in his views. When he voted for Kerry I was shocked. He was a proud supporter of Pres. Obama and still is. Thinks he is one of our greatest presidents.
