Why are Democrats

in our community supporting

George W. Bush?

We are lifelong Democrats who find ourselves voting for a Republican
President for the first time. Terrorism threatens us and our fellow Jews in Israel

every day. Terrorism is not going to disappear - unless it is destroyed by those people who
believe in the sanctity of human life. The Nazis were not overcome by a huge coalition of
nations but rather by people such as the British and Americans who were determined to
destroy those vicious killers. We strongly support the difficult task that our President,
George W. Bush, is doing to overcome the tyrants of the world. The lives of our children
and grandchildren are at stake during this critical moment.

While voting for a Republican is new for us, it is a vote we cast with great
enthusiasm. It is an enthusiasm we hope others in our community share.

—Ann & Leonard P. Baruch

We are pro-choice women who have consistently voted
Democrat. We are also wives and mothers who know the first role of the

President is to ensure our safety. President Bush has done that. Senator Kerry
has a record, extending nearly 20 years, of voting against critical legislation
designed to secure our country in an increasingly hostile and complex world.
His contradictory statements throughout the campaign further convince us
that he is the wrong leader for our country. The political pundits call us
"security moms" who might determine the outcome of the election. We are
just mothers who know that either we decisively confront the terrorists and
their state sponsors today, or our children will surely fight a more difficult
battle tomorrow.

President Bush has earned our support.

—Lisa Weinbaum, Liz joelson,,Lisa Menuck & Jill Menuck

I voted for Bill Clinton twice and for Al Gore in 2000.
I have never volunteered on a political campaign. However, I am so

troubled by Senator John Kerry's constantly changing positions on the
war on Islamic terrorism, that I had to get involved. One day Senator
Kerry supports the war in Iraq, another day he votes against funding for
American troops. Then he calls for a "global test" whereby defending our
nation must first be approved by the international community! In
contrast, President Bush has demonstrated consistently principled
leadership. He has captured over 75% of the Al-Qaeda terrorist network.
responsible for 9-11. Today, Libya's weapons of mass destruction sit in a
warehouse in Tennessee. As a son of a Holocaust survivor, our family has
survived against the odds of history. I will not entrust my children's fate to
shifting political winds.

I am proudly supporting President George W Bush.

—Mark Adler er Family
