Joe Biden Will Bring Us Together

By Jon DeStefano


We endorse Joe Biden for President of the United States.
He is a good man.
He is capable, honest and dignified.
He has served our country well.
He will be a president for all Americans.
Donald Trump has failed.

   He has put America and Americans in grave danger misleading us at a time when our lives depend on hearing the truth. He told Americans the corona virus was just like the flu and it would magically disappear from our country.
   He lied, and now we know he knew better.
   He told us we had enough ventilators when we did not. He told us masks would not help us. That, too, was untrue. He said taking Hydoxychloroquine would cure you and encouraged people to drink or inject disinfectants.
   Just before summer, he said warm weather would stop the virus, it did not. He also told us the young were immune. They are not. He told us we are all safe now, because we have herd immunity, again not true. He promised us a safe vaccine before Election Day and then forced the CDC to lower vaccine testing standards.    He has continuously lied to the American people about the worldwide pandemic, failing to protect the lives of our people by grossly mismanaging America’s response to COVID-19 resulting in the deaths of over 200,000 Americans. Over 20% of the people who have died as a result of the virus in the entire world are Americans. Americans make up only 4% of all the people on earth. The majority of these deaths could have been prevented with competent and compassionate leadership.
   Donald Trump has consistently and deliberately lied to the American people and when he lied, people died.    Trump has undermined our democracy.
   He has turned his back on our troops and our veterans failing to confront the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin for placing bounties on the lives of American soldiers. He has alienated our allies, betraying our alliances and insulting them while coddling dictators.
   He has undermined NATO, removing troops from Europe, essentially threatening it’s continued existence.
   He has allowed and even encouraged foreign interference in our national elections. He has attacked freedom of the press in America and covered up the Saudi execution and dismembering of an American journalist and bragged about it.
   He has interfered with the rights of Americans to vote, using the US Postal Service to obstruct mail-in voting so that he can deny the counting of hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots. He has even threatened to nullify the election results if he does not win, telegraphing a coup of our American government.
   Donald Trump has pitted the American people against each other.
   His overt and persistent racism continues every day. He has encouraged civil unrest often turning peaceful demonstrations into armed conflict. He has equated extreme white nationalists groups and violent agitators with peaceful protestors.
   He has undermined the rule of law in America intimidating whistle blowers and lawful witnesses. He has used the office of the US Attorney general to attack his political opponents while protecting criminals from lawful prosecution.
   Donald Trump is void of basic decency. He has been accused of rape and sexual assault by at least 25 women and has used the office of the President to shield himself from justice.
   He has inhumanely put children in cages and the practice continues even now although he claims otherwise. He is also responsible for the sterilization of women without their knowledge or approval.
   He is both a bully and a thug. He is incapable of civility let alone leadership. He is a crook who has used his office to steal millions of dollars for himself, his family and his cronies. Trump has fraudulently paid no taxes 10 out of the last 15 years and only $750 in 2016 and $750 in 2017.
   Donald Trump is a mortal threat to Americans.
   He has continued his effort to nullify health care for Americans, and health care for those with pre-existing conditions. He is also continuing to attempt to nullify Medicare and Medicaid and to end Social Security.    Trump is a threat to the world. He has shamefully pulled the United States out of the Paris accord and has removed hundreds of important environmental safety measures by executive order.
   Donald J. Trump is not deserving of another term as President of these United States. Neither are those who empower him. It’s time for a change.
   Vote for democracy, vote for America, and vote for Joe Biden.
