I work with a lot of people over 65 in my business. I’m located in a fairly rural area in deep East Texas. I always keep my politics to myself with my customers as it is not relevant to my work. However, on occasion, a customer will straight out ask me or will offer their own thoughts to me for my comment.
I don’t know what is in the water today but every customer I spoke to had a political comment today and all were along the lines of “I don’t know what has happened to the Democrats, they have gone over the deep end!” Remember, this area has morphed into a Republican area, but this area once was the very definition of yellow-dog Democrat county just ten years ago.
One lady today told me how she was hired as a secretary in McAllen, TX, in 1964 in a government project to compile statistics on the number of illegal immigrants crossing the border and the number of the same carrying diseases such as tuberculosis, pneumonia, hepatitis, etc. She said she was shocked at the trainfuls of illegals then and that was years ago. She can’t comprehend the inaction on the current border issues knowing that it is exponentially worse now. (She said that she couldn’t get a job in McAllen back then until this government position opened up, because the illegal immigrants would work for next to nothing.)
When people who have voted Democrat for 70+ years think the current Dems are crazy, there is a problem!Published in
