I was born in New Jersey, I live in Texas. In between I lived on 3 Continents and traveled to 37 countries. So I don’t think where I was born influences my thoughts so much as my exposure to many cultures, religious beliefs and peoples around the globe.
In my youth I was Conservative Republican and now I would call myself a liberal Democrat except that I don’t agree with everything that the Democratic party represents. I think for myself. I watch the news, I read the papers, I listen to whichever president is in office, vote in local and national elections, and make up my own mind.
For reasons I fail to comprehend, I seem to take the opposite political view held by most of my neighbors and co-workers.
In fact my wife and I voted for different presidential candidates in the last election! Yet we’re happily married but see the political landscape differently.
