I definitely was. I'm not sure what sparked the change within me, maybe just life experience and growing up. I think moving away from a liberal mindset is the natural evolution of a maturing adult with some life experience.
I look at liberals now as people unwilling to accept reality and see the true nature of the world and society. They are sad little people who suppress their true nature in many cases. They believe the world to be as they want it to be, not as it is.
