A Guide to the 2020 Democratic Candidates You Should Not Vote For

The purpose of the Democratic primary process is to vet each candidate and choose the best one. They're applying for a job for which you pay the salary, and a thorough background check is in order. Regardless of campaign promises and convenient claims of evolution, uncovering and addressing the potential nominees' past actions is crucial, as it's a politician's record that best predicts how they might govern in the future.

This guide focuses on the four "major" candidates that come with the most concerns: Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, and Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke. Originally starting small after some family and friends asked me to put together a collection of articles, it's quickly grown out of the desire to create an accessible and digestible public resource for all people to share.

Rousing debate within the party doesn't weaken it, it strengthens it. If we don't deal with the negatives of a potential nominee now, Trump will. If we nominate a candidate plagued by a litany of disqualifying issues, Trump will win. We can't make that mistake again.

Nothing was included without a source for evidence, and unsubstantiated or sketchy claims were left out. I want this to be as accurate and exhaustive as possible and plan to update it as necessary, potentially even expanding to include other candidates. If you find an error or have a suggestion, please let me know!

Special thanks to just a few of the real journalists doing the real work that makes an aggregation like this possible, as well as these folks for partially inspiring this endeavor. You should follow all of them instead of me.

JOE BIDEN

has been personally involved in nearly every bad policy decision of the last 50 years. Currently coasting on name recognition and association with Obama, he can only go down from here as people realize he is more comparable to Trump than he is to anyone else. With all the negatives of Hillary's failed campaign but none of the positives, he would almost surely see us lose the general election again. If you love your grandchildren at all please do not vote for Biden.

TOP 5 HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Led the fight against desegregating schools even years after it had been proven a success and defended by Republicans [Expanded 7/6]
  • Voted for the disastrous Iraq War and still says he'd "do it again"
  • Wrote the racist Crime Bill that intentionally led to record-breaking mass incarceration, positioning himself to the right of even Reagan and Bush
  • Opposed Roe v Wade and voted to allow states to overturn it like they are now, worked to undermine the ACA's coverage of birth control, does "not view abortion as a choice and a right" and still opposed federal funding for it multiple times including during this election
  • Long history of creepily groping/sniffing/kissing women and young girls just so many times, even including intimidation and continuing even now after his non-apology


BUT THAT'S NOT ALL:

PETE BUTTIGIEG

ROBERT FRANCIS "BETO" O'ROURKE

More likely to stand on something than for anything, "Beto" rose to fame by clearing the low bar of being less unlikeable than Ted Cruz. Like most white men born into wealth he's failed up, choosing a vanity run for President despite being best positioned to flip Texas' other Senate seat in 2020. He says he was born for it, but maybe he should've just stuck to skateboarding.

TOP 5 HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Continues to appropriate Mexican nickname "Beto," which was given to him specifically to pander to / trick Hispanic voters when running for office, despite criticism from the Hispanic community [Clarified 7/1]
  • Used his political power to help his millionaire father-in-law gentrify poor Hispanic communities with a racist plan that "relocated" poor Hispanics to make way for property investments made by wealthy Republican donors
  • Opposed Obamacare, tried to cut social security, and attacked labor unions to appease Republican donors
  • Generally voted against Democrats so much he was in the top fifth of lawmakers voting against their own party, voting with Trump a third of the time even though he represented one of the most solid blue districts in the country
  • Ran the most expensive congressional race of all time with immense establishment and celebrity backing and still lost to the guy who lost to Trump

Those lists are amazing in how far left the judgment of the author is. Leftists doing regular leftwing stuff isnít enough anymore. Astounding.

So, the author claims Biden is more comparable to Trump than anybody else. And he opposed baby murder, voted to allow individual states to overturn Roe vs Wade, worked to overturn Obamacare's coverage of baby murder, doesn't view baby murder as a "right" or a "choice", and has multiple times opposed federal forcing of taxpayers to fund baby murder.

Those are all positives, not negatives. And I love these quotes:

"With all the negatives of Hillary's failed campaign but none of the positives..."

Huh? What "positives"?

"Led the fight against desegregating schools even years after it had been proven a success and defended by Republicans..."


If he's referring to busing, when was it a "success"? I was in school in that era, and it was a miserable failure.

:rolleyes:
