I USED TO BE
I left the Democratic Party when it became apparent that appeasement, weakness and "Blame America
First" were their strategy for dealing with America's adversaries.
It began with jimmy Carter. I was in college and, like

my parents, a proud Democrat. But I thought Carter
refused to stand up to the Soviet Union's worldwide aggression.
He was naive and his policies invited more aggression.
Then, after a massive Soviet military build up, my Democratic
Party promoted a nuclear freeze. The Democrats had
become a do-nothing party of military weakness.
By contrast, Ronald Reagan challenged the
Soviets. He countered their deployment of nuclear missiles
in East Europe with deployment of nuclear missiles in West Europe. The Democrats called him a
warmonger and Europeans protested him. But he stood by his principles, won the cold war and made
the Berlin Wall fall down. He also brought freedom to hundreds of millions, including my relatives
in Hungary. At the age of twenty-two, I changed parties.
Today, I believe that it's still right to stand on principle, even if it's unpopular. I believe in peace through
strength, for Israel and the United States. I worry that the Democrats are becoming increasingly
pacifist at home and neutral abroad, especially in the struggle between Israel and her enemies.
In this age of terror, I care too much about national security to be a Democrat anymore.
