Over the years I've discovered my own truths about religion and politics.

It took years to undo all the religious indoctrination I was subjected to when I was young—no one ever asked my my opinion on the nature of God and the purpose of God's more well-known prophets (Jesus).

It took quite a while to separate my thoughts of how the country should be run from other conservative thinkers. Fortunately, since the early part of the century I paid a lot of attention to what our national leaders were saying and doing, and it shifted my perspective completely.

But is there a separate "you" there other than that set of "beliefs"?

"You" are "your beliefs".

Great question!

Answer: probably not as many as I'd like to think.

Thanks for the powerful inquiry. :)
