The 2020 Presidental Race
So Bernie dropped out today, now the race is set, it's Biden and T-rump. I wanted Elizabeth Warren, I think she would've destroyed T on the debate stage and been an amazing president. I like Biden's policies and I like that he's a moderate, even keel, not knee-jerk or extreme. He's been in congress so he knows the art of compromise. Yes, there's things about him I don't like. I've never been a Biden fan and I've read about some sexual harassment claims that don't seem to be getting any traction. If they are true then that will challenge my support for him but it wont cause me to support T-rump.
I'm not sure yet if Biden's ever been charged with raping a 13 yr old trafficking victim or if he ever drug his wife by the hair of the head, pulling chunks of it out before raping her, or if he's currently charged with defaming a women he's accused of raping in a dressing room, a women he says he didn't even know but is now fighting a court order to turn over a DNA sample to be tested against the semen stain on her dress. I don't know if Biden has been accused of sexual assault and/or harassment by over twenty women.
Here is another matter left largely unaccounted for in the proceedings: Donald Trump, currently accused of bribery, has also been accused of rape. He has been accused of other forms of sexual misconduct as well, by more than 20 women, their allegations ranging from kissing to groping and grabbing, all against their will. If you include allegations of nonphysical forms of sexual harassment, the number of accusers grows even larger. The president has, in reply to these claims, issued a blanket denial: The people making accusations against him, he has said, are lying. (That list includes, ostensibly, Donald Trump himself, who has made his own claims about assaulting women: “It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait … Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”)
I don't know if Biden has ever stood beside Vladimir Putin on the world stage and sided with him rather than American intelligence or if he's ever had to pay two million after admitting he'd used his charity to bolster his campaign and settle business debts but I know T-rump has. I don't know if Biden would ever be stupid enough to extort a U.S. ally for his own political gain and get himself impeached and I don't know if Biden has friends like Michael Cohen-Trump’s former lawyer, Paul Manafort- former campaign chairman, George Papadopoulos and Roger Stone - former campaign advisers, Alex van der Zwaan-Dutch lawyer, Rick Gates- Manafort associate and Michael Flynn - former national security adviser (not sentenced yet) all willing to commit federal crimes (and go to prison) for him so he can get elected.
Back in 2016 Republicans could've nominated a decent person, someone flawed certainly as we all are but decent, someone like Romney or Jeb Bush, maybe Rubio or Kasich, men I disagree with but decent guys. Instead they chose a Serial Sex Predator, wannabe Dictator who treats our great country like his bank for his family to cash in on. The "Family Values" party chose a man who said of child sex trafficker, Jeffery Epstein “..he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
All this matters. It all factors into who someone is and speaks to character and integrity. Since he was elected he's bullied anyone that dares to challenge him and made sure to squash anyone in his party who gets out of line. Only women like Nancy Pelosi dares to stand up to him and put a finger in his face. The men around him just kiss his ass or cower in his presence. So unless Biden shows himself to be an absolute evil shit like T-rump, I will be voting Biden and campaigning hard for him as we all should.
