Opinion: Republican senators needed to stop Democrats’ agenda

Fellow citizen and voter, in an extraordinary turn of events, the Georgia electorate will not only decide the future of Georgia but also the future of our country. The fate of 233 years of constitutional government is in your hands. The senatorial runoff on Jan. 5 will determine who controls the United States Senate. That is the only issue. 

Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York has been very clear about his intentions, if he is given a Senate majority. 

The Democrat leadership first intends to eliminate the filibuster rule and in so doing remove the last check on the hot mess legislation continually erupting from the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. 

He would then have the Senate pack the Supreme Court of the United States with compliant justices, destroying the independence of the judicial branch of government overnight. 

And finally the Democrat majority would move to grant statehood to the city of Washington, D.C., and to the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico ensuring four permanent, safe Democrat Senate seats and a perpetual Democrat majority in the Senate.

Traditional Republicans, Trump Republicans, independents, Libertarians and even moderate Democrats have a common interest in opposing this destructive agenda. This is undoubtedly the most important vote you have ever cast in a Georgia election. 

There are only two absolute certainties in this election. The first is that candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff will vote 100% for the Constitution-destroying agenda of Sen. Schumer. 

The second absolute certainty is that Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler will not. The decision is yours. Take it seriously. Now is the moment for you to vote to preserve our constitutional form of government. Vote early.
