accounting major - no change as I was just as conservative when I graduated
Although......after college 2000-2006 made me a libertarian due to the pubs expansion of intervention.
Then I went to grad school for MPA (not OU) and still am libertarian leaning even after studying how to provide efficient and effective intervention.
F the pubs/dems.
Do you know why the debt increased, and what the effects were? Was it Reagan that increased it, was it broken Congressional promises or was it broken promises coupled with winning the Cold War?
Was he an active apartheid supporter? Is Constructive Engagement, encouraging change, the same as support?
Why did he back Sadaam? What was the Mid East situation at the time? Do you think less of FDR bc he was allies with Stalin? Obama because he's chumming up with Morsi?
How did he crush worker rights? Is this referencing the Controller strike?
Was Star Wars a waste of money, or did that push have effects that are ignored because of the agenda being pushed? Did anything positive come from the SW program?
Why were we involved in Central America?
He was confused on foreign policy? I guess his foreign policy was a failure then?
Arms for hostages? Kennedy gave up missiles to appease Kruschev and allow him to save face. Was there a reason? If you way to criticize Reagan or JFK here, what would you have done differently (eye lasers don't count.)
OU made me more liberal, but after graduation I moved more to the center. I am a left leaning centrist. Definitely not a republican of any sort.
Dr. Fears' class was one vehicle that helped guided me to a more moderate libertarian view point. I used to be a lost, confused neocon.
I went into OU leaning conservative, and came out leaning conservative. Probably more libertarian by the end, but I can't say I attribute too much of that to OU.
I took a sociology class in school called Social Problems. It might as well have been called Socialist Indoctrination. Seeing the effect that it had on some of the other students was almost scary.
