21. We need to return to 'normal' in order to . . .

 

get anything accomplished. Any and all progressive ideas on healthcare, climate change, voting rights, immigration, equality, etc. will rely on saving the Republic and returning to the Rule of Law.

The situation is that dire.

When I read people bemoaning the 'safe' choice, I'm aghast. If my house is on fire, I want the 'safe' choice of the fire company swooping in as quickly as possible, to save the structure, the bones of the building. It makes little sense to stand back and argue over the cut of the drapes. That's a Steve Bannon mindset.

Joe Biden is a liberal, left-of-center. He has the track record to prove it. He also has the experience and knowledge to step in on Day 1 to put out the fire, turn things around and start the process of healing and rebuilding. He's already spoken to the primary Democratic issues and I'm sure he will speak to them again.

If you want an idea of what he's championing then listen to the speech he gave to the Electrical Workers' Forum. It's all there, including the passion and urgency.

On top of everything else, he can win this thing. And without winning, everything we care about will be flushed down the toilet by Trump and his toadies. We cannot let that happen!
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
