    Biden's Problematic Record

    I dislike Joe Biden. I provide this list of concerns over his abysmal record so that others can obtain an historical context of who he is and why many people actively distrust him and are not likely to vote for him, myself included. I see him as a terrible candidate for president and I can't imagine any circumstance that would cause me to vote for him.

    Biden has a long, long, long record of engaging in endless fuckery with which I strongly disagree. I consider this record worse than his opponent's record in terms of the harm it has caused to individuals in terms of their personal finances, personal liberties, and even their very lives when it comes to his support of certain wars. I don't particularly care for his opponent and won't be voting for him either, but he's also had far less time to screw over average Americans as much as Joe Biden has done for literally decades.

    And all of that is absolutely nothing compared to what Trump has done just in the last 6 months,so please take your blatant concern trolling elsewhere.

    I’m not looking for a soul mate, I’m just trying to take a bus to a part of town closer to where I want to go.

    Biden>Trump.
    Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.

    Pretty good tag.

    This is on Trumpkins. You voted that piece of crap in and almost anyone is better than him.
    Democrats are the best! I will never ever question a Democrat again. I LOVE the Democrats!

    Which is why I support a national health service / Medicare for All - whatever you want to call it. Biden is opposed, it's the first two links. If you keep voting Democratic and they never really push for a national health service, what do you call that?

    Isn't insanity doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results?

    Dude, I'm not going to vote for Trump. With those 40 million out of work and many losing their health insurance we need a national health service right the fuck now. You want to challenge me, but why not challenge your supposed chosen candidate on that issue? Why give him a pass?

    Could some of you try to think analytically and critically for 2 seconds consecutively, please?

    This would go on no matter who is in charge.

    You're not allowed to criticize Biden on these forums without people bringing up Trump.

    Don't understand the need to declare that you won't vote for someone.

    I guess pointing out that this is a rather binary choice and not voting aids trump would go completely over the head of these so called "left" supporters?
    Quite the dedication to get such a thread up or is it desperation? Or maybe even distraction of reducing WHO funding during a pandemic?

    Or maybe as European i struggle with the American need to turn the voting process into a clash of personalities over policies.
    Strange how people can over focus so much on one side and be almost completely blind to the other, also how one can prefer a possible bad choice over and constant bad choice.

    It's like advocating that drinking too much water might kill you while drying up in the middle of the desert, rather absurd way of defending your believes but i guess that's all these people have, questionable world view and dubious morales.

    Look, Biden is a trash fire, and anyone who pretends he isn't sketchy as fuck is ignoring the stuff that blatantly needs to look closer. Unfortunately, if the choice is him or trump [which, unless Bernie makes an amazing comeback it seems to be] then a vote that isn't for Biden is a vote for trump. And this is too important to let go to trump. At the very least, someone with a D next to their name to ensure that the Supreme Court in america doesn't skew hard right for the foreseeable future has to come in.

    In the choice of the lesser of two evils, if you don't choose, you are choosing the greater, and right now barring a miracle, if you don't choose Biden, you're choosing the replacement of Ginsburg to be another Brett Kavanaugh. Don't give America another Brett. Please.

    When you make it about the election and voting, you are in fact making it about both per intend. Claiming otherwise is simply being obtuse.

    You had me voting for Biden as soon as I noticed it wasn't Trump..

    My favorite part of these posts. They post it to toss shade but they remind me.. oh.. Biden isn't Trump? SOLD.

    And what exactly does that change about how horrible Biden is? And you can infact vote 3rd party in the US, as crazy as that sounds.


    Not supporting Biden does not mean you support Trump.

    This election pretty much has the two worst candidates the US has ever had. Trump is....well, Trump, and Biden is at the edge of senility and it's probably 50/50 he survives four years, and no way he survives eight.

    This election everyone is basically voting for their party as opposed to their candidate. If you vote democrat, there's a good chance the VP will be the president in the not too distant future so let's hope he picks a good running mate.

    Nobody? But it seems none of you can defend him without bringing up Trump.

    It changes the same exact thing, as people replying that Trump is so bad, that they are voting Biden. What exactly does comparing him to Trump, change in bitching about Biden?

    Not supporting Biden does not mean you support Trump.
    What about not voting Biden?

    So? Freedom of speech, no one is stopping you from criticizing Biden. Why are you so afraid of people making the comparison?
