What takes precedence in casting your ballot: shared political philosophy or the character of the candidate? Do we vote for the candidate we align with on major issues when there is good cause to suspect the person lacks integrity, veracity, and empathy for the people they will lead?
Donald Trump has engaged in numerous lies, unlawful secret payouts to silence women he had adulterous affairs with, promoted policies of separating young children from their mothers, encouraged white supremacists, and failed to condemn conspiracy theories such as QAnon.
He called a sitting U.S. Senator and candidate for Vice President a monster. When Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s life was threatened by militia groups, President Trump not only failed to reach out to her, but also publicly empathized with her arrested would-be kidnappers, suggesting that she be locked up.
As our sitting President, he has demonstrated apathy toward the eight million people who have contacted Covid19, as well as upwards of 228,000 people who have perished from it. He has refused to encourage mitigation practices endorsed by the scientific community throughout the world. His campaign rallies, consisting of thousands of supporters with no social distancing and mask wearing as a suggestion rather than a requirement, lack concern for the health of the citizens in attendance.
Knowing that the President is in control of our nuclear arsenal, are his political views more important than his concern for the human condition? It is submitted that the character of the candidate should supersede his/her political views. The country and the world are safer when our leaders are honest, trustworthy, and the welfare of the citizens are their first and last concern.
Vote for Joe Biden! We need a decent President who listens to his advisors, has strategies, makes plans, respects the military, values science, tells the truth, and has shown the ability to work across the aisle for the benefit of every American.
Friends Don’t Let Friends NOT Vote!
The only way we can flip Florida blue this election is if we vote in huge numbers. Help a friend vote. Talk to them about how important their voice is this year. Know a young person who is eligible to vote for the first time? Talk with them about current events and make sure they vote early or show up at the polls on November 3.
