The Democratic Party needs a strong presidential nominee to defeat the odious Donald Trump. And Joe Biden isn’t up to the task.
When Biden gets away from a teleprompter, the results are often disastrous. But his rich donors don’t seem to mind, as he speaks at one lavish fundraiser after another -- filled with multimillionaire hedge fund managers, corporate CEOs, mega-investors and top executives from gas and oil companies.
RootsAction is committed to preventing the re-election of Trump. And we’re working to prevent the nomination of Biden, who has an abysmal five-decade record of serving corporate power and the military-industrial complex. It’s a record that Democratic primary voters should know before they start voting in early 2020.
That’s why we’re asking you to support the Biden Truth Squad that RootsAction has launched in several early-primary states. Whatever you can afford will widen our reach and impact. You can take a minute to click here and help now.
Already, one at a time, we’ve gotten our high-impact flier about Biden into the hands of nearly 10,000 core Democratic activists at state party conventions in New Hampshire, South Carolina and California. That flier documents key facts.
For instance, Biden’s record includes teaming up with segregationist senators to oppose busing for school desegregation; badly mistreating Anita Hill in the Clarence Thomas hearings; playing a major role in passage of the now-notorious 1994 crime bill; providing career-long services to the likes of big banks, credit-card companies and other huge corporations; and powerfully supporting the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Of course, those weaknesses in Biden’s record are already fully known to Trump’s re-election strategists -- and they’re eager to inform voters in key swing states about them. Among Biden’s biggest vulnerabilities is the fact that he strongly supported NAFTA, the corporate trade pact that’s extremely unpopular in the “Rust Belt” where the 2020 presidential election is likely to be won or lost.
- Please share our Biden Fact Squad flier that we’ve distributed to thousands of progressive activists and voters. Your donation helps us print more of those two-sided, 14-inch, full-color fliers.
If you donate $12, that means we can print 100 more copies. Or, with price breaks for bulk copies, $100 would mean 1,000 more copies. Whatever you can afford will go a long way.
Please share Joe Biden: Facts and donate what you can afford to strengthen this work.
