So I was speaking with an acquaintance, a former colleague, who it turns out voted for Biden. I don;t know this person very well and just happened to run into him this past weekend. He was, well, gleeful to be rid of Trump. I of course, reminded him that Biden was not confirmed as the winner. there are challenges and court cases to go through before the December 14th conclave of the Electoral College.
Of course he disputed that saying that the media had declared Joe Biden as the President-Elect, the 46th President of the United States. I have argued this too many times in my life: The press doesn’t decide who’s president and there’s no “President-Elect” until the electoral College votes. so I smiled and went on my way. We had exchanged phone numbers and emails because, honestly, I don’t judge people by the politics. I mean, if I did, I wouldn’t know a lot of people. Even those that are consumed with Trump derangement, I can find a way to get long with, because I just don’t discuss politics with them.
But last evening I received an email from this former colleague, the Biden voter that in one way, confirmed what I had been saying for months about people who were/did vote for Biden but the remainder of the email was, well, a bit frightening and is a classic case of not knowing what you’re voting for, when you vote for a certain candidate. Yes, this guy was an “Anybody But Trump” voter, and would’ve, as I described to someone else recently, voted for a dead cat if it was on the ballot. And basically, this former colleague admitted in his email, that’s exactly what he did.
He’s realized that everything that he’s been told about Biden, from the TV advertisements, is mostly false. Yes, he realized, his taxes will go up if Biden can make it happen and he makes a lot less than $400K. Yes, he will lose his healthcare according to Biden’s plan. Biden has already said he would reinstitute the Iran Nuclear Deal ans well as the Paris climate Accord, the first of which will allow Iran to get and possibly use a nuclear missile in the very near future, the second which benefits China, India, and our European allies, while penalizing and punishing the American people.
Biden already has a number of pre-written executive orders that will negate those of the Trump administration as to immigration and DACA from the southern border as well as the one preventing people from some states in the middle east that harbor terrorists.
This person dosen’t support any of these initiatives. So, since these are some of the big initiatives the Biden campaign has spoken about, why did he vote for Biden? Well, I already know: he hates Trump with something like I’ve never witnessed before. When asked what Trump has done to garner is distaste, what policy or policies, he can’t name a single one. It’s Trump and. we have to hate Trump. Okay.
I’m now actually wondering how many people voted for Biden without knowing that if he won, what he would do to change the country? As I’ve said before, I think a lot. they don’t care who’s president as long as it’s not Trump. they haven’t thought beyond that.
