you still haven't hit it yet. you are in limbo. in accumulation stage. and sure i'm talking mostly fiscally, but the relationship between fiscal and social conservatism is a interesting balance. I'm slightly left of center socially. but i'm bit farther right fiscally (I don't mind safety nets for the bottom of wage earners). If i was more socially conservative, i'd be much farther right fiscally.
Post accumulation we begin to preserve our capital and lessening our tax burden. I have stuff i want to keep my stuff is more steeped in aging than it is necessarily some decision we make. Sometime in our 40's our brains begin to lessen our curiosity and "progressivism". We react slower and begin to hold onto familiarity, routine, and are more likely to accept and want to preserve the norms they are used to (conservative).
You also were likely raised as i was in a UBER conservative household. I rebelled really my SR of highschool and the lion share of my friends and I were rah rah RATM type of guys and gals. Most of us now in our stages of life are most certainly way more conservative than we were in HS and College and even in our 20's. We've had this discussion at work, many of my late 20's-30's cohorts can feel the peel back of the far left they gravitated too in youth. That doesn't mean they listen to rush limbaugh and share ben shapiro articles amongst each other, they are just more closer to the center then they are to one side.
