DON’T LIKE Joe? Don’t like what the Democratic Party “did to Bernie”, think Joe Biden is a “hateful ‘Corporate Democrat” or a “Neo-Liberal” or “Too old” or “Declining” or anything else . . . then DON’T vote for Joe Biden!

BUT . . . pick one of these 30 reasons and vote for THAT!!

VOTE FOR THE SUPREME COURT
1. Vote for Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Justice Ginsburg will be almost 92 at the end of the next Presidential Term. If, God forbid, Notorious RBG retires or leaves The Supreme Court for any reasons in the next 4 years, Donald Trump would fill that seat with ANOTHER BRETT KAVANAUGH, giving the Court 5 HARD CORE TRUMP SUPPORTERS, a moderate Trump Supporter and only 3 people willing to stand up to Trump. That means the end of Democracy as we know it, the end of environmental regulation of corporations, the end of a woman’s right to choose, likely the end of gay marriage (yes, they can do that), the end of voting rights, and so much more. Joe Biden, like Barack Obama, will appoint someone like Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
2. Vote for Stephen Breyer. Justice Breyer will be 85 at the end of the next Presidential Term. If, God forbid, Stephen Breyer retires or leaves The Supreme Court for any reasons in the next 4 years, Donald Trump would fill that seat with ANOTHER BRETT KAVANAUGH, giving the Court 5 HARD CORE TRUMP SUPPORTERS, a moderate Trump Supporter and only 3 people willing to stand up to Trump. That means the end of Democracy as we know it, the end of environmental regulation of corporations, the end of a woman’s right to choose, likely the end of gay marriage (yes, they can do that), the end of voting rights, and so much more. Joe Biden, like Barack Obama, will appoint someone like Stephen Breyer.
3. Vote AGAINST Clarence Thomas. Justice Thomas, the most Conservative Justice in generations, will be 75 at the end of the next Presidential Term. He has already indicated, on many occasions, that he is getting ready to retire. If he does retire during another Trump term he will undoubtedly be replaced by another Clarence Thomas, someone likely even more Conservative than Brett Kavanaugh . . . and, likely, someone FAR younger. Another Clarence Thomas, entering the Court in his or her 40s, for example, could be on the Court until…
