Supports Trump over Democrat choices
If I was voting for a Democrat candidate in the upcoming Presidential election and had to choose between Sanders and Biden I'd prefer Sanders. Both he and Joe have similar socialist platforms, however Joe doesn't seem to have the guts to come right out and tell you that he is one. Both loudly proclaim they want to raise your taxes, both are lovers of open borders, both want to take guns from us, both don't believe that marriage is only between one man and one woman, both want to become dependent on foreign oil again and both are pro abortion, etc, etc.
The biggest reason I wouldn't vote for Biden over Sanders is his track record as second in command on the previous executive branch totem pole. Especially the foot dragging that went on for about six months before declaring a national emergency with the Swine flu ordeal. The 2009 flu pandemic in the United States was a novel strain of the Influenza A/H1N1 virus, commonly referred to as "swine flu", that began in the spring of 2009. The virus had spread to the US from an outbreak in Mexico.
The CDC estimates that from April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, there were 60.8 million cases, 274,000 hospitalizations, and 12,469 deaths in the United States due to the virus. (Figures from Wikipedia.) Something else that the majority of Americans won't forget about is the mess they made with public rest rooms.
There's not one thing in his record as VP that I can think of that would make me even consider voting for Joe Biden. So why is it that people like poor old Paul Mack in our country love Biden so much that they will stand in long lines just so they can brag about voting for him? Now it's pretty obvious that Joe will become the nominee for the party. Another thing is this -- Biden is considered by the Democrat uppity ups to be the "establishment" candidate, so that is probably the real reason they prefer Biden over Sanders. Especially since there's no way either of them would be a winner against President Trump in November. Yelp, that's it, they'd rather lose with an establishment man than with Sanders.
Seeing that Biden is my only choice would definitely be an eye-opener for me. Then after applying some plain ole Possum Town horse sense, I'd say no thanks to Joe Biden and his socialist platform. I then would put all my support for Trump/Pence all the way to November 3 when I would gladly vote for them in order to keep America Great way beyond 2020.
