Response to Original message
1. I work with a woman,
staunchly Republican her entire life. Her husband is a (now) retired farmer and a long time member of our counties Republican Party. A couple of days ago we were on break at work and she brings this up. She stated that she will never vote Republican again after hearing them lie about something she's paid in on her entire working life. She also said that her husband is so upset he's talking about publicly leaving the party.
