Since, coming to DDO, what have you changed your political stances on?

Check my photo album to see my original stances. I used to be conservative.

I went from a liberal to a Leninist to an anarcho-communist to an anarcho-capitalist to an Objectivist.

I was stupid when I was 13, as you can see.

Disclaimer: I am not currently prepared to debate this issue with anyone, so please, don't argue with me right now.

I went from being pro-choice to being pro-life. That was the big switch.

My political views seem to have solidified, rather than changed. My views on morality seemed to have changed a lot, however.

I'll say one thing about Scientology: some of LRH's quotes sound like they're straight out of Rand. It's basically a mix of pseudo-Aristotelian and pseudo-Nietzschean garbage mixed with the absolute worst biology/"science" that I've ever seen.

Hubbard was a good writer at least.

JK, I just evolved a bit, and tried to learn more about the issues. I switched because it made more sense to me. Also some of the issues I just chose, because the majority supported it.

I was most notably very authoritarian, and was known to be a defender of Islamic theocracy, whereas I now am socially liberal. At one point I was interested in American politics at large and sympathized with the Republicans, which I strongly regret; but it thankfully was a short phase. :)

Yes. Mostly, I've solidified much of my believes, but I've changed a few.
