I rest my case.
Hey peeps,I've gathered from the "student clubs" at Chapman that it's quite a conservative school... Anyone know how conservative? I.e., is it socially conservative AND economically conservative? I went to a pretty Right school for my previous degree and as someone who staunchly believes that Liberal is NOT a "dirty word," I can't say I'm thrilled with the prospect of doing it again... And if it is so conservative, are there any fellow admits looking to help start the first Democratic Caucus? Also, what's this I hear about previous Chapman students suing the school? Is this true? What were the reasons, how was it resolved, etc?Any info would be appreciated! Thx.
I think everyone has a weird interpretation of what a California Republican is...I am born and bred in So Cal, being raised in LA, OC, and SD. I am also a Republican, and so are many of my friends in high school and college.We like to consider ourselves separate from other conservative Republicans in like...the south and the midwest. Sentors McCain, Hagel, Snow, and Mayors Riordan and Giuliani, and my governor. This is what a CA Republican looks like. We are usually convervative when it comes to economic issues and honestly don't give a sh*t about most controversial social issues; if gays want to have sex 'whatever' if a woman wants an abortion 'whatever'. CA Republicans may not agree with it, but we are not going to picket the local planned parenthood office cause we have better things to do.OC gets a rep as a conservative area, not because it has gun wielding antiMexican Nazis and hicks....but because it has $$$ and lots of it in the western and southern areas. MTV's Laguna Beach isn't that far off from the stereotype. The area around Chapman isnt exactly richie rich central.In fact...there really arent that many super conservatives nor are there many super liberals in the area that make up a HUGE clump of the population. To be honest, we (20 somethings in So Cal) are too busy, reps and dems alike, trying to be popular, make money, and look good, to care much about issues and be passionate about them. And if we are, its probably a fad.The honest truth.
