50 years ago or so, it was as if things were flip-flopped from what they are today, because 50 years ago, the Democrats were more like the Republicans are today. But, it was not the Republicans who changed. It was the Democrats, and they have not changed for the better.
My family had voted Democrat for over a century, and I still lean in the direction that I was taught by my parents and grandparents, but that party's agenda and ideology changed so much that I had to jump ship. How my mother and brother cannot see the damage that the DNC has done to themselves and to America is beyond me.
