Anyone else heard this? It was true for me. I didn't realize what the facts were untill I was about 25 (6 years ago).

I think it is because public school is rubbish and my Dad didn't force anything on me.
I remember saying one time to my Dad. "I like that guy" refering to Bill Clinton. He asked me why and I didn't have an answer.

I also remember hating Rush. Then a new friend started talking to me about politics and I started to listen to Rush. Then I couldn't figure out why I hated him. I realized after a while that I was brain washed by the insesant tv media.

From then on it has been 90% am radio and 10% of choking down tv news.

What age is young? I'm 26 and a registered Republican. That no heart mess is bullshit; I'm fairly certain that I would be dead if I didn't have one of those.

They can have my nerf guns when they pry them from my cold dead hands.

True for me too.  G. Gordon Liddy is the one who talked me out of my liberalism.  It was the summer of 1995, I was 25 years old.

I agree that it is bullshit. I think the saying is just a way to say that

"untill you mature mentally you will be a dem"

I've had no heart since as long as I can remember. My first vote went to Dole.  I'm 31.

Being into guns and hunting since I was a kid made me a politico nerd since I was 13.

Growing up in Socal, the liberals were always making fun things illegal.

I've been a republican forever, I'm 22 now. Everyone tells me I'm cold and heartless though. They also tell me I'm going to make a lot of money so it balances out.

I've been on the right since forever.
I guess growing up in New Jersey and seeing the failures first-hand can do that to you.
I don't understand how my friends and peers from there can remain to the left of Lenin.

I've always been a Republican.  I started listening to Rush in middle school.  I am 26 now.  I was 18 during the 2000 election and have voted Republican for the last 8 years.  Independent once for a senator.
Link Posted: 10/16/2008 7:38:29 PM EDT
I was 11 or 12 when I first read "Anthem" (Yes, I was a big Rush fan. ) and "Animal Farm".

By 14, I had read "1984". By 16, "The Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged".

There was never ANY chance of me being a Lib.

I guess I don't have a heart. I'm ok with that.

R since birth. Its what dad is/was and thats who I wanted to be like. After some self discovery and reading up on conservatism it only strengthened my beliefs and resolve.

My English teacher told me that my Senior year when I disagreed with the liberal books he made us read. I then went back to give him some Air Force crap and told him I never read one of his books the entire year...lol

I've never been a liberal that I can remember.  If anything I've become more socially liberal, and fiscally more conservative as I got older (I'm 23).

I never had a heart. Mostly brains.

Im only 24. I supported Bush in 2000, and I was able to vote for him in 2004.........and I will vote for Mccain.

I have been a republican since I was old enough to understand politics. I wouldnt call myself a "harcdore repub" though. I do disagree with a few things that most repubs stand for.
Link Posted: 10/16/2008 7:46:20 PM EDT
Conserv. since middle school.
Link Posted: 10/16/2008 7:53:14 PM EDT
I've been conservative for as long as I can remember politics.  I can barely remember Reagan (born Dec '82) and how much my parents loved him, so I did too.  I remember being very sad when HWBush lost in 92.  I remember passing around Clinton jokes in 4th grade.  And I used to argue with liberal teachers beginning in 8th grade (history teacher who was extremely PC and wouldn't shut up about her "work in Africa").

I know the saying your talking about, but I guess I was well educated in the realm of politics from a young age.  Helps that I loved history and read enough to get As in every history class (except ghey Music History--my mom told me this was a stupid class the school forced me to take and that I could get a C and it would be fine if I focused on the important subjects) from 6th grade through AP US in 11th grade.  I've been conscious of politics and the importance of them for as long as I can recall.  That means I've been conservative.

I'm 17, and I've been a Conservative for as long as i can remember; I think its because I've been around the military my whole life (and because I'm not a dumbass).

and no, i don't have a heart

I think Churchill used the terms "liberal" and "conservative", not Dem and Rep.

Besides, these days lots of mainstream republicans aren't conservative anymore. Neocons are friggin' socialists. Choosing between them and dems is like choosing between fascists and communists.

Flame away if you wish. It's still the truth.

I remember it liberal vs conservitive.
And it makes sense for that, not dem vs rep.

I always understood it different or wrong depending on how you look at it.

As a kid, you want everything to change. Basically nothing works in your favor, so you want to fix it.

When you get older, stuff is working for you so you want it to be the same, so no changes.

But it is funny, they use to give us the political tests in grade school. I always identified with the republicans, but depending on who gave the test, I showed up scored as a dem or libritarian(sp).

Yes he did, and I think just based on myself Churchill was right - I was a young conservative, and it's true I had no heart.
Still don't.

I've always been a heartless-conservative, though I toyed with being a leftist during 2007.

I must have never had a heart because my Father began raising me to be an (R) from day one.

I had teachers that glorified Communism and Socialism, so I leaned slightly D. That was until I realized that D's like to decide what freedoms the American people deserve, as if it wasn't already decided a few years ago (1787). Then I joined the military, and my love for freedom only grew. God bless America.
