    In 1980. I was just old enough to vote for the first time and my husband and I were saving up to start a business. The Iranian hostage crisis is what got me too. I don’t remember the name of the mission, but I can clear as day still envision those burnt helicopters crippled on the ground. How it affected me. I can’t imagine how you were feeling. Republican since then. Just sold the business after 25 years. Still have the husband! God bless you and thank you for your service.

    My father taught Economic Geography at a major military institution, on of the Big 3.
    It was unavoidable!
    So I was about 7 when I became aware of world events…
    The recent events of Bush and 9/11 have re-kindled them
    Republican- but I like what you say. For now.
    If they don’t use footage of lies, lies, lies against Obama in the next campaign, I will consider anything else. I voted Perot and helped Clinton win, so I do not take this sort of thing lightly.

    The year was 2001 when Bush ran the first time. For some reason Bush scared the hell out of me so I began paying attention. I was working, paying off my student loans and paying taxes.
    I am a Democrat.

    I was about 20 years old. I became interested when I went to college, my roommate was a fan of Rush Limbaugh (this was when he had his TV program). I started watching the show and talking with my roommate about political issues and that is when my interest started.

    I started listening to talk radio around 2002 and I have been listening to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Mark Levin for a while now. I have learned a lot by listening to talk radio it is very informative and I agree with their conservative point of view.

    I am a Republican but I wish the Republicans would stand for conservative principles and stop trying to please those on the left.

    The first year I was able to vote, I think it was 79. Got a job as a canvasser for Paul Carpenter for assemblyman. In California. Yep! Signed up as a democrat. I was a democrat until Clinton’s second run in office. I did think hard and long about voting for him the second time but did it any way. I mainly voted with the abortion issue, misguidedly thinking is was my choice, and then with all the crap he did in his presidency I changed to Republican and have been happy ever since. I did vote for Reagan though.
