Given the recent purges at the DCCC, I think it's more likely Jews will be kicked out of the Democratic party before they decide to walk away.

I like his policies over those being peddled by the liberals. They've really gone off the deep end, putting illegal aliens in front of Americans.

(And don't get me started on what the liberals have done with an adjacent "sanctuary county." There are so many illegals there - estimates are about 30% of the population - who are so unskilled and uneducated that they can't afford to rent even a low-rent apartment. So the liberals have OK'd the conversion of SFH neighborhoods to high-density, allowing people to build additional "residences" in their backyards. Slum landlords are moving in, taking over formerly middle-class neighborhoods, and turning the place into a slum. But I digress....)

Yikes, the left is increasingly seeing everyone as being or not a "person of color" first with no room for anyone who is not.

Why is it that illegal immigrants are blamed on democrats. We actually need them. It makes our country greater and they contribute to our economy

Did you just read what I wrote is happening in the adjacent county? They are turning formerly middle-class neighborhoods into a slum by allowing the building of additional living units in the backyard! You think that's an improvement?

And they do not contribute to the economy overall. That's another fabrication. The net cost to support illegals is about $160 billion a year when you factor in the cost to educate all their kids.

Yet we fork billions of aid to them, when we run extremely high deficits already.

Most American Jews aren't one-issue voters, and many of them don't necessarily agree with the policies pursued by the current Israeli government. They're not all AIPAC aligned; in fact, some of the younger ones support groups such as J-street which is an alternative.

Israel cannot survive if it's not an ethno-nationalist state. It's up to Jews to make their decision. If they understand that ethno-nationalism works fine in Israel and is not at all the caricature made out to be by modern day liberals, then they will have an easier time rejecting the idea that multiculturism is our strength.

I see you Trump lovers still believe people "walked away" from the Democratic party. And that's even after you got your collective asses handed to you in the midterms last year.

Well, Israel is already multicultural - and that's just in the Jewish population, before you even start to factor in the Israeli Arabs.
