Leaning To The Right

Anyone else finding their political leaningschanging as you get older? I've always been interested in why people changetheir ideology as they get older, now thatit's happening to me, I'm still not surewhy...

I was watching a discussion on Insight(SBS Tuesdays 7:30) about the level of debt inAustralia.

Five years ago I would be right there in thecamp of people saying that credit companiesand banks are bleeding people dry. Now I find myself with the other camp that saysthat people should take personal responsibilityfor their actions. I find myself saying "you got what you deserve"more and more...

So, what's causing this? Is cynicism unavoidable?Am I reading too much Ayn Rand?
