Lifelong, older white AZ repubs protest and will vote for Biden

snip/

"I think the last three to six weeks have been a turning point," says Tom Rawles, 70. "We can always fight over the issues. But we need to cut out the cancer that is infecting the body politic of America."
That cancer to their party, the couple says, is Trump.
"We'll support Biden not because we agree with him on issues," Linda Rawles says, "but he's a decent, kind, sane man.
I've considered myself a Republican since I was 13. We're not at home in our party. We're not Democrats. We don't have anywhere to go."

1. In a way I feel for them

At the risk of offending these forumsí Democrats-Since-Diaper-Days, itís a horrible thing to realize that the party you once supported has turned away from the values you affirm and towards bullying, lying, and corruption.

I was once in their shoes back in the Eighties. I was a moderate Republican who was watching the GOP take a hard right turn, a turn that boded no good.

Unlike these aging Arizonans, though, I had someplace to go.

2. This is it, and this is all. "That cancer to their party, the couple says, is Trump"

Read it again..over and over..."Older white AZ repubs protest and will vote for Biden" from CNN

Lifelong republicans. Trump is cancer. They are voting with Biden..."he's a decent, kind, sane man......
...." We don't have anywhere to go"


These people represent millions of republicans..Yes, I said millions.

Trump is a cancer, Biden is a decent kind sane man...

..Yes, I said it twice, that is how many, many people view Donald Trump..(millions of people)
