When did you become a Republican and why? Always? Slow transition? Sudden 9/11 shift?

I went to Brandeis and thought that liberal and Jewish were the same thing. After 9/11, I saw that the Republicans took the Islamist agenda against America, Israel and western civilization seriously, and the Dems didn't. I really appreciated Bush's original tough stance and loathed the Dems' appeasement policies. As I became more open to Republican ideas, I noticed that the Dems' fiscal policies were disastrous and unsustainable.
