A lot of people talk about Joe Biden. We’re doing something about him.
To defeat Donald Trump -- which we must do -- will require mobilizing voters with an inspiring presidential candidate. But many corporate media outlets and powerful Democrats are still trying to prop up the distinctly uninspiring Biden campaign as it stumbles along.
Strategic distribution of key facts about Biden’s actual record is crucial -- well in advance of any primary voting. We launched the Biden Fact Squad to shed light on that record.
Meanwhile, this month Biden has continued to speak at one lavish fundraiser after another -- filled with multimillionaire hedge fund managers, corporate CEOs, mega-investors and top executives from gas and oil companies.
Biden 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 Fact 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.
We’ve already gotten our high-impact flier about Biden into the hands of nearly 10,000 core Democratic activists at state party conventions in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, South Carolina and California. That flier documents key facts.
For instance, Biden’s record includes 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 if he’s the Democratic nominee. 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 already distributed to thousands of progressive activists and voters.
And please chip in so we can print more copies of RootsAction’s illuminating Biden flier -- and distribute it more widely in early-primary states.
If you donate $12, that means we can print 100 more copies. Or, with price discounts for bulk copies, $100 would mean 1,000 more copies. Whatever you can afford will go a long way.
As indicated by articles listed below under “Background,” we can’t depend on corporate media to inform the public about what Biden has actually done in his long political career. We’ve found that even many Democratic Party activists lack information about important aspects of that career.
Please share Joe Biden: Facts and donate what you can afford to strengthen this work.
