Vigil 1Gabriella Vigil4thUS Gov10/18/2017My political socialization autobiographyEver since I can remember politics have been a topic of discussion not necessarily athome but everywhere else including school, the store and even on tv. My very first memory ofsomething big politically was the Obama election in 2008. During election time things started tochange, it went from being a conversation you heard every once in a while, to the only thing youheard people talking about. Every conversation started with an idea or opinion of Obama orMcCain. My parents try to keep me out of it and let me discover and create my own opinions.Though my parents tried to let me figure things out on my own there are things that theyinfluenced me on. Some views just can’t stay under wraps because their belief is so strong. Otherthings in my life like my close connection to the military and family members who live indifferent states who have some separate views from my parents also influence me and how I feel.
