Native Mississippian,born in Vicksburg but lived in Biloxi most of my life.

The first time I voted, I'm so ashamed to say that it was for Clinton in his first term. I was pretty apolitical then, and just doing what the people I was around a lot then did. It didn't take long for me to realise my mistake-first, once I began really thinking about things (that always helps,duh:)), I realised I didn't really agree with him on anything. Why did I vote for him then, you may well ask? Good question, I'll have to think more to give a rational answer, LOL, because I don't think that there is one. All I can say is that while I was uninformed, I voted for him-once I became more informed, I realised my mistake. Growing up helps a lot too.

The Lewinsky/impeachment mess just put it all into stark relief for me, I was converted (or maybe not converted, I would say finally understood myself, having finally actually given things some thought) by the time that came about.

So the moral of my story is, when you are uninformed either in honest ignorance or willfully, there is much chance that you may vote for a liberal. Once you're informed, if you're honest about things, there is no choice but to vote for conservatism. I'm ashamed to say that I came to the realisation later than I should have, considering that I was never a socially liberal person.

But all's well that ends well, and the more I learn, the more I am reinforced in the rightness of true conservatism, and the more I abhor liberalism. To know it is to despise it and its most prominent proponents of present times. For the leading lights of present liberalism, I don't believe that THEY even believe in it. Most seem to have no TRUE convictions of ANY kind, other than what serves their own purposes of ambition, greed, or ego.

More on everything else later...
