My parents have never forced a religion on to me..possibly because they don't follow one...and as for politically..we discuss things but we tend to debate them as opposed to me being told i have to agree with them...

My school try to force us to be a good catholic and most people are like "OMGJESUSRAWKSMYSOCKS." but there's another bunch of people, including me, who think for ourselves.
As for the political stuff, nobody at my school really cares about politics anyway, and even if they did I still wouldn't care.

my mom and dad push christianity and homophobia on me.
the problem is that im the second most liberal person in my town. the most liberal person is a good friend of mine. hes a buddhist hippie. and i respect that. im atheist. when my dad says the word "liberal" he makes it sound so filthy. i had to work to keep from yelling at him for it.
my parents would prolly disown me if i told them i was atheist. but thats okay because my religion is my own business, and they dont need to know.
i think my parents have influnced me in some ways because they always encouraged me to do what was right by me. they didnt really say that we were a good christian family and we were all republicans and that was right, they encouraged me to discover that myself. my mom is a registered republican. in my county, its difficult to get a job where youre employer will take you seriously if you arent. but really, my mother is borderline democractic. and i yell at her for not voting and for voting based on her registration rather than her actual beliefs.
and thats funny and ironic, because parents should be preaching the importance of voting to their kids, not vice versa.

your own choice is based on a mixture of your parents beliefs, media and what type of environment you live in, so the whol idea of 'personal' choice is deabtable, because no one really has their own choice.

it's not really brainwashing, because everyones beliefs are based on this, so it's just life, if it was brainwashing then their would be a person organising it, but their isn't, but i understand what you mean.

I was influenced by my parents, they are Christians and I am Atheist. My parents showed me what happens when you label yourself to have a sertain religion and still manage to go against it every single day of your life.
As for politics.. I'm not very informed on the topic, the media hardly has any say considering that I hardly watch tv, and I don't listen to radio. Green Day got me to learn about politics but not to hate Bush. All that homosexual crap got me to study The Declaration Of Independence and I proved whoever wants to make it illegal wrong, which isn't even that hard... I guess I take it back then.. the media influenced my political choices aswell.
