I have shown you opinions of Joe Biden from others in 1986. You have seen his performance as VP under President Obama.
You have seen Trump through the 80s/90s/00s/10s as I have.
I don’t care about personality. I care about leadership style.
Do you see their leadership styles as identical?
Is it “the devil you know” is better than the “devil you don’t”?
You know what Trump 2021, Trump 2022, Trump 2023 and Trump 2024 will be.
It will be a continuation of what we saw in Trump 2017, Trump 2018, Trump 2019, Trump 2020.
What you DON’T know is what Biden 2021, Biden 2022, Biden 2023 and Biden 2024 will be.
Amazing. You don’t know his working style. I gave you a psychological profile of him. I gave you his friends and enemies opinions of him in 1986 when a possible run for Biden pres was in the talks.I’m not trying to make Biden more acceptable. I’m trying to get you to be rational about your choices rather than just “I don’t like Joe because creepy memes and he picked top cop lady”.
Biden is in my best interest and in America’s best interest right now for 2020-2024..It’s not difficult for me. Who I like or don’t like, how I ‘feel about’ doesn’t matter to me.But I’m a civic-duty guy. Boy Scouts and shit. I wouldn’t force someone to vote at gunpoint because NOT voting as a protest to the system is a common choice many Americans make and I respect that.But will I also express my thoughts? Sure.
I haven’t shut myself out to other choices. I made a choice. I’m a third party guy ONLY WHEN the choices are equal.
When I was 8, I wanted John Anderson. He was 3rd party. like kids with pokemon cards, I was all politics at 8.But I didn’t know that 3rd party was abnormal.I voted for H. Ross Perot twice. Why? I liked what he said and one of the values that he aligned with is a viable 3rd party candidate.I was independent until 2018. I’m a Democrat because of the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida .
John Anderson was viable. I would’ve voted for him at 8 years old if I could have.H. Ross Perot was viable twice. I voted for him twice.No other time did I find a 3rd party candidate that was viable. Including this time.
“liked what he said” = I agreed with his platform
You have no idea how hard it was for me to change from “No Party Affiliation” to Democrat in 2018.Line by line I read the party platform of the Progressive Democrat caucus. Line by line I read the platform of Andrew Gillum who I wanted as Governor of Florida.I agonized over it because once I declared Democrat, I wouldn’t hear the end of it from independent friends, non voting friends, 3rd party friends.And I haven’t. It’s been shit ever since.I’m depending upon what Sanders wanted to do in 2016 and what he wants to do in 2020: infect the Democratic party with Progressive values. It’s starting but it’s a slow-ass process. But it’s happening.
I’m watching hard-ass Democrats swapping to Progressive stances on many issues. Change is happening.
That’s why I’m doing this.
I had an Excel spreadsheet. 75% in favor of Gillum platform. 80% in favor of Progressive Democrat platform.That other 20-25% that I DISAGREED WITH?Hard as fuck to get over myself. The pain of swallowing shit I didn’t like.But how could I deny it? That’s a C or B- in school. It’s FINE.
Fuck my feelings. That’s what I had to do. That’s why when you say it’s “my feelings”, I bristle. It’s not my feelings., It’s what’s correct for my value system which is a “this is correct / this is incorrect” system.
I don’t if it’s all logic or all intuition or what degree of what that it is.
I know that there’s a “this is correct / this is incorrect” sense I have and I’m baffled when I see a “this is incorrect” ‘out there’ somewhere.
Sometimes it’s due to me lacking a piece of information that clears it up. So, I
I see what’s happening at the border. It happened here in Florida too. I see how it affected people. I see people from other countries laughing their asses off at us.That’s the majority of it. I think it is my feelings – you’re right. We are mocked by the rest of the planet. They are enjoying this shitshow where we finally fall apart. They egg it on although a few with sadness but most with glee.Can’t blame them.
But it’s embarassing.
So yes, my choice is 100% on feelings right now.
You weren’t going to accept any other answer. You repeated the same thing at least 5 times that “no it’s really your feelings”. SO I found a way to agree. Now we can move on.
You acknowledged that it is a feelings choice that you are making which explained why the information I provided did not matter to you..I am satisfied.
