of these five, which would you consider the one that has the most influence..
Wouldn't it depend on the individual, how connected to family, or peers, or organizations he was?
Lyndon Johnson once listed his political allegencies this way...
First, I am a child of God
Second, I am a free man
Third, I am a family man.
Fourth, I am an American.
Fifth, I am a Democrat.
So we all have our own influences, and of course, it varies with circumstance and events. We will be happy to comment on your thoughts.
I agree with BobPursley that it depends upon the individual.
For me, it was a combination of my own experiences plus learning about the world from college teachers that shaped my political socialization.
