(CNSNews.com) - If the Democrats win run-off elections for two Senate seats in Georgia, the only people who have something to worry about are taxpayers, business owners, parents, cops, gun owners, people of faith, and the unborn,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) told Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday.

“I can't overstate the importance of Georgia. We have -- if you count Alaska we're also going to win we have 50 Republican votes. We need 51 to hold the majority. It’s going to be determined in Georgia. What happens in Georgia is going to determine the future of the United States for the next four years,” the senator said.

“Now, if Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer and Senator Sanders and Congresswoman (Alexandria) Ocasio-Cortez win in Georgia, you've got nothing to worry about unless you are a taxpayer, a business owner, a parent, a cop, a gun owner, a person of faith, or an unborn baby,” Kennedy said.

“You've got nothing to worry about if they get control of the United States Senate unless you care about the American dream. You've got nothing to worry about if they get control of the United States Senate unless you believe in more freedom as opposed to more free stuff and That's what's at stake and It is all hands on deck. The American people are going to get and decide are we going to live under democracy or socialism,” he added.

Host Sandra Smith asked what Kennedy expects President Donald Trump to do next assuming that former Vice President Joe Biden makes his transition to the White House.

“Well, number one I want to see the president finish prosecuting his claims of irregularity. The integrity of the electoral system depends on it. We had tens of millions of Americans that think that the election was rigged as a carnival ring toss, and it’s important that they -- however the election comes out that we all accept the results,” the senator said.

“So we have to finish letting our courts do their job. In terms of what happens after that, I hope the president - regardless of how the legal claims come out - helps us in Georgia. We need the help. He is very popular in Georgia, and I don't want -- I can't understate the importance of this,” Kennedy said.

“I don't recognize many of my colleagues in the Democratic Party anymore. Many of them really are socialists. They really are to the left of Lenin. They really do believe in open borders and abortion is a moral good, and they believe that the way to deal with Iran is with hugs and hot cocoa. It will change America if the Democrats get control of the United States Senate,” he said. 

“We're not going to let it happen, but we have to have the help of the American people. I think they'll -- our friends in Georgia will step up. Now the media’s going to tell them how they ought to vote, but lots of times American voters don't vote like they're told to. They've learned to filter what they get on the internet and through some of the national news organizations and make decisions for themselves. They’re not morons,” Kennedy said.
