    Hello all,

    Is this possible, or a real misnomer? I'm 20, and come from a very conservative / military background.

    There's a liberal backlash where I live. Young conservatives are seen as freaks. Everyone's entitled to their point of view, of course!

    Texas-based, though I'm in the military.

    Texas is obviously Bush territory, but there's a localised backlash against the establishement at the moment. It's difficult to not be affected by it. Also, military service tends to predispose someone towards conservatism -maybe?

    well they are in for a big disappointment if they think Hillary will be much different than McCain on any issue of substance be it the war, immigration,or the economy ..the style will be different a few pet projects will be different but ultimately the same puppet masters will pull the strings

    Im 25 and very conservative politically. I was the only outspoken conservative in my college classes. They were dominated by liberals and the ones that werent were getting brainwashed by liberal America-hating professors.
