This letter is in response to the articles covering the Georgia Senate elections. I write because I have family living there and believe our voice must be heard.
The choice between Democrat and Republican is quite evident.
Democrats care about people and choose to help those who cannot help themselves. Republicans (on the other hand) believe that government is best that governs least; people should pull themselves up by their bootstraps no matter how bad off they are. COVID-19 is a prime example.
Democrats believe in the fair distribution of wealth while the Republicans leverage it into the fewest hands.
Democrats advocate health care as a right guaranteed to all citizens while Republicans support enriching the insurance companies and drug manufacturers.
Democrats don’t lead America into unnecessary and futile wars while Republicans consistently act to increase defense spending in order to do just that.
Democrats encourage everyone to vote while Republicans do everything in their power to prevent people from voting.
This election is a clear choice between those who have never had it so good and those of us who know we can do better. Georgians know the distinction.
Never let it be said that this was the time the tide ran out on Georgia, but rather was the time the tide that came in under the leadership of two Democratic senators.
