Is my memory correct on this?

Is it correct to say that, at one time, senior citizens were maybe THE most important voting constituency?

I seem to remember that politicians quaked in fear proposing any changes that would affect Social Security or Medicare in particular?  I seem to remember that group being talked about as "THEY VOTE."  So they tread very carefully messing with this group.  Seniors paid attention and protected certain issues.

So, how did the country go from that to illegal aliens?

Many seniors endlessly BELIEVED the sky was falling as propagandaed by the Dems. Now the dems have just moved onto the Illegals.

It was the Gray Panthers.
I think they all died off or got brainwashed by EERP.

Your memory does not fail. Seniors were ‘feared’ because they VOTED; protecting that hard earned SS laid out for them like a pyramid scheme by Dems. long ago.

It’s a numbers racket that corrupt politicians always work. In this day and age, politicos have come to a place where they’re willing to revitalize that labor pool which keeps the ‘plantation’ profitable, even if it means going outside its own citizen-base.

My US army service (in 1958-1960) as a "forces of occupation" was a two year stint in the US Sector of south Germany.  This was followed by a six year program in the US Army active reserve (which included two week summer training each and every year). 

We reservists were ready to depart to foreign lands whenever called on to do so.  However when I called the Veterans Administration (at the age of 84) about my eligibility for benefits, I was denied.

The denial was founded upon a technicality which stated that my claims were only valid in "times of war".  I happened to be serving in the last year of the building of the Berlin Wall. But that was not good enough. 

The VA needs to re-think its stringent rules and to take into consideration the actual specific circumstances wherin we were drafted and sent to foreign lands to combat the communist threat.  The "times of war" clause is an example of bureaucratic thinking which is based upon monetary expediency.

You should call your Congressman and discuss it.  It certainly can't hurt.  == BTW, Welcome to the Forum.

Good question Lily. Senior citizens still vote in large numbers. We are old enough to know when we are being lied to, cheated or put on ignore.  We are NOT having umpteen anchor babies or importing 3rd world diseased, uneducated immigrants into our country for the rest of us to support.   If we seniors are not outnumbered yet we soon will be.

Your not the only one who has run into this same problem with the VA.  Contact your  state Senators, here in Wyoming mine have been a big help to me.  Welcome to CF, hope to hear more from you. Let us know how this works out for you with your Senators.

Senior citizens cannot be reliably depended upon to vote democrat. In fact, I would be surprised if experience didn't change practically everyone to a more conservative viewpoint. Illegals, on the other hand, wherever they are able to vote, will vote for the party that is perceived as more beneficial to them. And I imagine most legal immigrants also would, as they haven't had years to sort things out, and probably don't care anyway.
