Drop Out Joe

To: Pres. Biden, Rep. Chavez-DeRemer, Sen. Wyden, Sen. Merkley

From: A verified voter in Oregon City, OR

July 8

I would like to add my voice to the growing number of those calling for President Biden to drop out of the race for reelection. I would like to start by saying that I don’t think Joe’s age is a factor, and I think he possesses all the qualities the office has required in the past. My issue is that Joe represents the spineless, neoliberal status quo that the Republican Party has been exploiting since the Reagan Administration. His is the Democrat who allows the Supreme Court to erode the systems that keep this country functional and protect our most vulnerable. His is the Democrat who thinks our unlimited-growth capitalism can save us from climate change, touting “green” deals with auto manufacturers and the fossil fuels industry. His is the Democrat who can sell Israel the weapons to slaughter nearly 40,000 Palestinians, while meekly shaking his head in “disapproval” with our ally. His is the Democrat who condemns police brutality against communities of color while expanding their funding. His is the Democrat who fails to show up for exploited Amazon and service industry workers attempting to unionize. His is the Democrat who continues to reach across the aisle while ignoring the Republican knife plunged into his guts. I was sickened to vote for Joe in 2020. Yes, the past four years have been a nice reprieve from the rise of fascism and white supremacy, but that isn’t a strong platform. It’s like I have to choose between opening the door to the rabid bear outside, or dying of the radon gas that is quickly filling the room. Biden and his ilk are bad for this world. We need a better candidate. We need better liberals. I hope you will join me in calling for his resignation.
