11. I prefer it when candidates do not denigrate the Democratic party with outright LIES.

 

Biden does not hate the Democratic party. Biden does not call Democrats "intellectually bankrupt". Biden does not think that the Democratic party is "ideologically bankrupt". Biden does not believe that Democrats are "feeble" and "corrupt".

Biden has never proclaimed that the Democratic party is an "absolute failure". You'll never hear Biden (nor his supporters_ characterize the Democratic party as being "the party of the one-percent". Futhermore, neither Biden nor his supporters accuse the Democratic party of being "the party of the elite."

Joe Biden does not denigrate the Democratic party with accusations of being "do-nothings". The Biden campaign believes that racism is real and that economic considerations won't make racism go away. Neither Biden or his surrogates smear the Democratic party by saying that "it focuses 'too-much' on Diversity".

We need to be united after all this. The goal is to beat Trump.
Yes it is, and the DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS THE ONLY PARTY THAT CAN DO THAT. We are a defacto "two-party-system" here in this country. No other party will bring down the GOP.

All I'm trying to say is that sure, there is tension arguing and bickering among ourselves and pointing out the obvious flaws in other candidates while participating in an anonymous discussion forum and on Twitter, etc... that's par for the course and to be expected.

But then... there are the OUTRIGHT LIES and other things that certain candidates, campaigns, surrogates and other ndividuals do and say publicly that denigrate and smear and divide and create distrust and suspicion and resentment... and which discourages voters from supporting the Democratic party.

In case you missed it... allow me to repeat: those things DISCOURAGE VOTERS FROM SUPPORTING THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AT ALL. It demonizes the Democratic party and portrays the party as being "no different" or "the same as" the GOP.

THOSE ARE DANGEROUS FUCKING LIES, MY FRIEND!

Here's the bottom line: Lies and smears about Democrats and the Democratic party create negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections. What good purpose does that serve? Why would any forward-thinking individual purposely do and say things that harm the Democratic party and which benefit the GOP?
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
