Letters to the Editor

Spell it out: America needs B-I-D-E-N

We’re backing Joe Biden for president this year.

Why? Take it by the letter:

B — Back to rationality, decency and character in the White House. We desperately need a return of all three to the Oval Office.

I — Intelligent. He has the intelligence to listen to experts and surround himself by the smartest people. Biden is secure enough to know that doing that strengthens a president, not weakens him. He has a thorough grasp of domestic and international affairs. He’s smart.

D — Democracy, the cornerstone of the Democratic Party, and its standard-bearer, Joe Biden. Crucially at this time, he’s the protector of democracy, an issue we’ve rarely had to face since 1776 and two world wars. Great nations fall not because of outward forces, but because of inward forces. In 2020 we are in imminent danger.

E — Experience — Joe doesn’t have to learn the ropes, he’s been in the ring of global affairs for years. He’s respected by world leaders, and will lead America back to its former niche of preeminence.

N — Never. Joe Biden will never be a patsy for foreign nations wanting to do America harm. He will always stand strong and firm for America, arm-in-arm with allies, a formidable foe to enemies and dictators.

America needs the likes of Joe Biden like we’ve never needed the likes of a decent, rational, experienced leader before. They say we’re at a turning point in history. Make no mistake: We are. Do your part and vote.
