To My Fellow Wonderful Biden Supporters: Thank you very much, and let's unify. :)

I want to thank all of the wonderful Joe Biden supporters, both the long time supporters and the ones who are not so long time supporters.

To the long time Joe Biden supporters:

Thank you so much for never losing faith, and thank you also for all of your hard work. You people are awesome.

For the newer Joe Biden supporters:

Thank you so much for joining the Joe Biden Team. I know that many of you initially supported other candidates and had to deal with the pain of them dropping out. I know that this can hurt a lot. I have seen some of my candidates fall by the wayside in the past, so I understand what it feels like. I believe that every Democrat who ran for President this year is at least 100 times better than Donald Trump. We had a lot of truly great field of candidates, and because there were so many good candidates, a lot of great candidates were not going to make it. It is unfortunate that no matter what, so many great candidates had to lose.

I always unify behind whoever wins the nomination, and I will do so again this year. With Donald Trump in the White House, and with his stupid inaction literally causing people to get sick and die, it is more important than ever to unify behind one candidate.

We can all be glad that the person we will be uniting behind worked his butt off to help Barack Obama succeed and will know what to do in the White House from day one. He is also someone who has spent his entire life serving his constituents and the Democratic Party. He was also the guy who on January 27 was warning the world that the Coronavirus was a big threat and that Donald Trump's attitude of ignoring it was totally wrong. Joe Biden was taking COVID-19 seriously months before Trump did, and he would have done everything to prevent it from spreading and to make sure our medical people had what they needed back in January.

To the Bernie Sanders Supporters:

I would love to see something resembling every one of his policies eventually enacted. One of his policies in particular, kissing Free Trade goodbye, is near and dear to my heart. I believe that this one issue alone can greatly move the Progressive agenda forward, and I will be pushing for Joe Biden to adopt this issue. I also hope that in the long run, we Democrats can eventually achieve pretty much everything that Senator Bernie Sanders was running on. Bernie Sanders supporters fought long and hard for a guy who really wants the best for people. Every Sanders supporter has something to be truly proud of, because on his worst day, Bernie Sanders is 1000 times better than Donald Trump, and if he had won the nomination, I would have vigorously pulled the lever for him in November.

Let's all try to remember that all of Bernie Sanders' goals were good goals, even if some of us disagreed on the best way to achieve his goals. Right now, let us consider focusing on keeping the eyes on the prize, and to my fellow Biden supporters, please consider burying the hatchet with me by possibly saying nice things about Bernie Sanders and his supporters. I believe this is important, and I believe that each of you can do this. Bernie Sanders and his supporters really do want a better America, they fight really hard for what they want, and best of all, most of them are die-hard Progressives, which makes them 1000 times better than Conservatives.

These are just my opinions. Ignore them if you need to do so.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

Some are being very angry and are lashing out right now (not here so much as on other social media) and I feel for them. We need to be confident and compassionate and honestly interested in how we can help some of Bernie's good ideas move forward. I hope Joe is all over that and Bernie will let him be. We need unity like never before, to stop the destroyer of all we love.
