No I tend not to join groups.
Not physically but I enter political discussions with Liberals quite often. One is unlikely to persuade them of the errors in their thinking but it is important for them to hear ideas they may never have encountered.
I did a thorough study of history and politics in my early 30's after I had established myself in my career as an electronics engineer. I was amazed at how much I did not know and how much my immediate culture in college had misled me.
I am a long time Libertarian. I am an American from California but have lived in Bangkok now for 10 years.
