Jews have been historical supporters of Democrat candidates. Shifts are occurring due to growing Democrat Progressive and Socialist positions, which are both anti-Semitic and anti-Israel, and which threaten the basic fabric of America.

Unlike incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, neither Jon Ossoff nor Raphael Warnock have shown the desire to challenge or oppose these positions.

Novices Ossoff and Warnock have not supported recent Abraham Accords, the first real signs of peace in 40 years. They support U.S. re-entry into the dangerous Iranian nuclear deal and lifting economic sanctions, raising Iran’s regional threats while Iran still chants “Death to Israel, Death to America.”

Ossoff and Warnock have little or questionable business experience or background in foreign affairs.

Perdue and Loeffler managed large companies with foreign involvements and having thousands of employees.

Before COVID’s nightmare, America under [President Donald] Trump and Congress had the biggest one-year growth in income and personal wealth in 50 years. More African Americans, Asians and women were employed than ever before. The tax cut of 2017 benefitted 65 percent of the population. Our borders were more secure. Our military readiness restored. Abraham Accords negotiated.

Ossoff and Warnock approve Biden’s immediately taking away past tax cuts raising capital tax on stock and bonds. A good way to stimulate the economy.

Remember Biden in charge of the stimulus? He had no shovel-ready jobs as promised and it took five years to spend the $800 billion, which was supposed to create immediate jobs.

Do you really trust a man who runs a tax-exempt church and a man owning a very small London documentary filmmaker addressing Middle East and Africa problems to use their “expertise” and support of socialist platforms to address both U.S. and foreign affairs? Get us back to 3.5 percent unemployment? Address threats to Israel?

Remember Benjamin Franklin’s statement “We are a Republic, not a Democracy, if we can keep it.”

Congress provides checks and balances to the administration. The House will be controlled by Democrats. Control of the Senate comes down to Georgia’s Jan. 5 U.S. Senate elections.

Clearly, both Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue will bring significantly more expertise and experience to the Senate compared to their opponents while assuring constitutional checks and balances by Congress.

Larry and Joan Laibson, Roswell
