I am also Latino and Conservative. I grew up in a family that is all democrats. I am also Catholic. I believe it was my Catholic upbringing that hepled shape my Conservative views.
I was in high school when I started questioning my family on their political views. I understood that I could not be Catholic and Democrat because of abortion. I also hated Jimmy Carter and beleived Ronald Reagan was our best hope.
Then I enlisted in the Marine Corps. My 22 years of service cemented my conservative beliefs.
Yes, the Marine Corps will do it! Congrats on your 22 years, I hope you’re doing well.
