The importance of the January 5th runoff Senate races in Georgia can not be overstated. While it would be nice to keep Democrats from winning either race, it is beyond crucial to keep them from winning both of them. The primary reason for that was laid out nicely by conservative author Victor Davis Hanson on Wednesday. In an interview with Fox News, Hanson explained that if Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff were to prevail in next week’s contests, the Democratic majority could then easily make dramatic changes to our country that would put Republicans out of power for at least a generation.
All it would take, Hanson explained, was for Democrats to win a majority in the Senate and then eliminate the filibuster. That would give them free rein to do whatever they wanted, up to and including giving statehood to Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico, which would give them an additional four Democratic senators and a runaway majority in the upper chamber.
But, Hanson warned, that would not be the end of it.
“They are not interested anymore just in winning on the issues,” Hanson said. “They want to change the structure, the process of how we govern ourselves. So if they get a super Congress, that is, the Congress and the Senate and the House, they’re gonna pack the Supreme Court to 15 justices.”
He said Democrats are also keen on eliminating Voter ID and getting rid of the Electoral College, two more initiatives that would make it extremely difficult for Republicans to ever win again.
“So the point is, the theme is they want to change the structure because they don’t win all the time, and they want to make sure that they can win,” he said. “This is a structural revolution. I think people have to wake up to it. It is not issue by issue, it’s the structure and the process.”
To block this, we need every Republican voter in Georgia to show up and vote next week for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. This is about far more than the political future of Georgia; this about more, even, than the next two to four years in Washington. This is about the country as a whole, and it’s about our ability to beat back the left for the next 25 years. It’s not an exaggeration to say that it all hinges on next Tuesday.
Let’s hope everyone gets that.
