As shown here, something’s not right with Joe Biden. He’s lost his marbles. He’s not playing with a full deck. He’s 5 Crayons short of a full box.
We’ve already got a mentally ill president. We don’t need to replace him with one who has dementia. It could be equally disastrous for the country.
Increasingly, it seems, the duopoly tells us to vote for the least-worst candidate. It’s not “vote for the best”; it’s “hold your nose and pick one”.
Like the Republican Party, the Democratic Party is corrupt. Hell, the DNC even said during a court hearing that they have the right to pick their candidate in a smoke-filled back room. Their pledge of impartiality? Fuhgeddaboudit.
In “the old days”, Democrats fought for the working class. They attacked monopolies, taxed fairly, promoted societal welfare and social justice.
Democrats gave us FDR and his “New Deal” which pulled the country and the working class out of the Great Depression. Later, Lyndon B. Johnson addressed inequality with his “Great Society” to help the impoverished and the working class.
In recent years Democrats have given us Republicans Lite like Bill Clinton, who loved prisons, cut welfare, cut Wall Street regulations, promoted offshoring manufacturing with NAFTA, denied LGBT equality and signed the “Defense of Marriage Act”, turned the Lincoln Bedroom into a campaign fundraiser. And that’s before we even delve into his sexual abuse allegations and impeachment.
Democrats also gave us the silver-tongued Barack Obama, who gave great speeches about “hope and change” but who was little more than a Wall Street flunky and a zealous proponent of killing via drone, including the extra-judicial killing of an American citizen. Obama also offered, of his own volition, to cut Medicare and Social Security. Obamacare is a joke (take a look at the bronze, silver, and gold co-pays and deductibles), written in closed rooms with insurance industry execs and lobbyists. Obama rose from “community organizer” to a guy giving $100,000 speeches to Wall Street and buying a $15 million mansion at Martha’s Vineyard.
The hypocrisy of Clinton and Obama epitomize what’s wrong with the Democratic Party. It’s no longer about the working class. It’s about hauling in money (just like Republicans).
In today’s political world, FDR and LBJ would be called “the radical left”, maybe even “socialists”. Clinton and Obama? They be the “Centrists”.
Personally, I am fed up with the Democratic Party.
I’m fed up with the barriers the duopoly has placed to getting on the ballot.
I’m fed up with the duopoly being funded (and controlled) by the rich and corporations.
I’m fed up with Democrats and Republicans (who jointly own “The Presidential Debates”) blocking access to the debates. The League of Women Voters used to run the debates but left, saying they didn’t want to be part of a perpetuation of fraud.
The only reason to vote for Biden is to replace Trump. The DNC figures that’s their ace in the hole–Trump is so bad they can replace him with a candidate exhibiting obvious mental deficiences. But there are other ways to remove Trump. Trump could be impeached again and if the Democrats can take enough seats in the Senate the outcome might be different.
I absolutely refuse to yield to the Democrats’ expectation that I’ll vote for an unqualified candidate.
We need viable third parties.
I”ll probably be voting for the Green Party’s Howie Hawkins (assuming he will be the Green candidate). You should listen to Howie speak. He sounds like true presidential material. He doesn’t lie, bully, or attack like Trump. He doesn’t trip over his words and mumble incoherently like Joe. He is a qualified candidate–something the DNC is not offering.
If the coronavirus pandemic keeps the Green Party off the ballot, I’ll probably not vote for president. I refuse to allow the corrupt DNC to tell me to hold my nose and vote for Joe. I may vote for Democrats running for other offices, but I’ll never vote for Joe for president.
