I know many of these Catholic Democrats, including my mother. They are 'attached' to the party through recollection of the good they did for 'their families' in the past. These are not free thinkers but followers. It is very challenging to persuade them to vote outside 'their' party.
What is difficult to understand?
Who could “follow” someone who supports shoving scissors into the brains of infants ( seconds before their first breath), scrambling their brains, crushing the skull, and sucking the gelatinous mass into a surgical suction jar?
A person like this would lead them straight to hell! Literally!
As hard as I try...I just don't “get it”. ( sigh!)
