I am just going to use the same questions but change one of course.

Do you consider yourself more open minded than the people around you?
(You conceded on the polling part where Greyparrot didn't concede. I think you can be a soc dem in no time but I don't really have too much to gain if I do convert you. You can still talk to me about it if you actually open minded and/or willing to hear why I think it is a better position. Detail for the yes or no would be useful.)

Do you think you have confirmation bias?
(Just search up the last two words you'll understand eventually.)

Why aren't you a social democrat/neoliberal?
(You better have a good reason or I'll have nothing to work with)

What is your favorite game of all time? 
(There is a wrong answer and lynching will be involved)

What is worse living a mundane 80 year life or living happily for 20 years of your life?
(These are set in stone you can't change that)

That is all for now. I'll ask more if I can think of more.

My father and mother are right wing so I was raised in that perspective... then I took the red pill and even after that I still found myself on the right wing.

Red pill is a right wing thing. If you don't think it is tell me who uses it and isn't right wing.

The “ red pill” is a reference to The Matrix in which Neo takes the pill and opens his mind to the idea that everything he knows might be wrong. He then goes on a search for the truth.

It has nothing to do with partisanship.

I always cheer for the in-state/local team. I decided to chose the Cubs over the White Sox and Tigers after my dad started watching their games.

Tell me a left winger who uses the word red pill. 
Then tell me the countless examples of right wingers using it.

It is used to pretty much state some kind of wrongthink on the left then they took the red pill and became a right winger.

In my case I was always a right winger, before and after researching and pondering things.

That wasn't what I asked.
Tell me the people on the left who use the world red pill to mean they had some sort of wrong think on the right which they eventually knew was wrong?

There is an entire channel dedicated to red pill and guess what? It is a right wing channel. 

Here is a video of his outlining what he actually is:

Just watch 15 seconds and you'll understand he makes the same points as the right. Dave Rubin, Ben Shapiro, Steven Crowder etc makes similar points.
