Watch: Tea Partier Explains Why He’s Voting Hillary, ‘Republicans Ain’t Done Nothing for Me!’ | Occupy Democrats
Your correspondent was reared a Republican. One of my earliest memories is being pulled onto my grandfather’s lap and hearing him say as he rubbed my head when he was about my age, his grandfather pulled him onto his lap and said to always vote the straight Republican ticket. You count the generations of voting the straight Republican ticket. The first time I was able to vote for a president, I dutifully voted for Richard Nixon. President Nixon showed me voting the straight Republican ticket is against my interests. I’ve never looked back.
In this video, a military veteran, lifelong Reagan Republican, and Tea Party patriot reveals how his allegiance has shifted after Obamacare changed his life for the better. “I’m kind of having a tough decision on who to vote for in the upcoming 2016 election, and I can’t decide. I was thinking about which party has helped me out the most…in the last 15, 20 years, and it’s been the Democratic party.” begins the webcam confession by “Jamey”
“If it weren’t for Obama, and that Obamacare, I’d have to work until I was 65 and get on Medicare, because health insurance is expensive when you’ve got medical problems and stuff, until Obamacare came along…Because you know what? The Republican Party, they ain’t done nothing for me, man. I’m leaning towards voting for Hillary…I don’t trust the Republicans anymore, man.”
Just another example of the way the Democratic Party makes positive changes in people’s lives while the Republican party “doesn’t do nothing.” While the Republican party pretends to care about the average American, they’re just catering to the 1% and the effects of that are being felt around the country by Americans from all walks of life.
