Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Wed Mar 4, 2020, 03:12 PM

 

Whether the nominee ends up Biden or Bernie...please remember:


1. You're not just voting for President.

2. You're voting for who replaces RBG on the Supreme Court.

3. You're voting for the next Secretary of Education.

4. You're voting for federal judges.

5. You're voting for the rule of law.

6. You're voting for saving national parks.

7. You're voting for letting kids out of cages.

8. You're voting for clean air and clean water.

9. You're voting for scientists to be allowed to speak about climate change and for rebuilding the CDC.

10. You're voting for what a President says and does on Twitter.

11. You're voting for housing rights.

12. You're voting for LGBTQ people to be treated with dignity.

13. You're voting for non-Christians to be able to adopt and to feel like full citizens.

14. You're voting for Dreamers.

15. You're voting so that there will be Social Security and Medicare when you retire.

16. You're voting for veterans to get the care they deserve.

17. You're voting for rural hospitals.

18. You're voting so that someone else can have health insurance.

19. You're voting for the preservation of PBS.

20. You're voting to have a President who doesn't embarrass this country every time she or he attends an international meeting.

21. You're voting against allowing the USA to become yet another authoritarian regime.

22. You're voting for sensible gun laws.

23. You're voting to re-establish voting protections for all citizens.

24. You're voting against divisive right-wing nationalism.

No Democrat is perfect.

Your first AND second choices may have dropped out. Your third might. But the nominee, no matter who he is, won't be perfect. They won't pass your purity test. And yet either one of them will be better than four more years of Trump!!!

Please be reasonable.

2. I have not seen one Biden supporter say they would not vote for the nominee.

 

The people we need to worry about are the Bernie supporters who did not vote last time, or voted for Stein or Trump.

5. I've seen plenty on Twitter

 

Plenty of so-called Dems on Twitter say they'll vote for anyone but Bernie in November. At least as many as Bernie people who say they won't vote for the eventual nominee. Though it may be skewed a bit because I unfollowed a lot of the 2016 Bernie supporters I was following who became Bernie or Busters.

3. Some didn't seem to realize we were voting for most of those things in 2016.

 

One would hope they've learned something since then.
