Waiting to gobble me up

For almost fifty years my husband and I lived here in this small city where I still live. Up until a little over a year ago for the most part it has been a pleasant place to live, friendly people and nice neighbors.

Sad to say that for the last year or so it is no longer pleasant to live here. I feel like the only fish in a ocean of sharks circling and waiting to attack and gobble me up.

I am surrounded by people that think they know why I will be voting for Mr. Biden, they don’t have a clue. They are saying because I will vote for him I believe in murdering babies, that is NOT true. They think I want their guns taken away that is also NOT true.

What is sad to me is that none of them want to hear my reasons for voting the way I choose to, they just want to loudly proclaim to me what a terrible person I am because I am registered as a Democrat and I am for the two things mentioned above.

It upsets me that they are grouping me in with ALL Democrats when not all Democrats see things the same way I do.

It would be so nice if we could just sit down with those who misunderstand us and have a nice, respectful discussion, but that seems to be far-fetched if not impossible.

If there is a Democrat in this whole city I have not found them. I know a lot of people here and they are all Republicans, that never mattered until now. We all got along and there was respect for one another until after the last presidential election when it began changing and has steadily worsened especially over the last year.

In my opinion having no political parties would prevent this kind of thing from happening on such a grand scale.
