Because The Squad and their radical 20-year old terrorists have taken over the democratic party, many sane democrats are leaving the party.
Those who are 50 and older are especially disturbed by the radical left turn of the democrats. They remember a time when the democrats were wrong on some things, but not dangerous.
If you were watching the RNC convention, you saw a lot of democrats who have switched parties. People like Vernon Jones.
And now you can include Minnesota mayors in that group.
Six democratic mayors in Minnesota will be voting for Trump in November because they believe he represents the working class and they don’t recognize their own party anymore.
They weren’t happy about the Obama/Biden administration and the thousands of jobs that were lost in their iron-mining region. They were vigorously opposed to the Trans-Pacific Partnership that was made under President Obama and killed under President Trump.
They said in their endorsement of Trump, “Generations of young people have left the Iron Range in order to provide for their families with good-paying jobs elsewhere. We have watched as our constituents’ jobs left not only the Iron Range, but our country. By putting tariffs on our products and supporting bad trade deals, politicians like Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class.”
Under Trump, however, the Iron Range is roaring back to life and the locals appreciate that the president is willing to fight for them and their jobs.
They are also appalled that the democratic party has been “moved so far to the left” that the party is unrecognizable.
They say something that I’ve heard a lot in the past month…
“We didn’t choose to leave the Democratic Party, the party left us.”
