Reasons to vote for Joe Biden 2020:
• AGAINST Gay Marriage
In 1996, Senator Joe Biden voted for the Defense of Marriage Act which defined marriage as between a man and a woman. This law also prevented states
from recognizing same sex marriages.
• FOR Mass Incarceration
Senator Joe Biden authored and voted for the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 which initiated the “3 Strikes and You’re
Out” policy which has resulted in many people spending life sentences in jail for minor crimes. He nicknamed it the “Biden Bill.”
• AGAINST Abortion Rights
In 1982, Senator Joe Biden initially voted for a constitutional amendment which would have allowed states to overturn Roe v. Wade – the Supreme
Court decision which legalized abortion.
• AGAINST School Busing
In the 1970’s Joe Biden stated that “I have become convinced that busing is a bankrupt concept.” He actively worked to oppose busing as a way to
desegregate schools. Biden even wrote letters seeking the support of people who thought schools should be segregated by race.
• FOR Iraq War
Senator Joe Biden, who at the time was chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, voted for the resolution to authorize military involvement in
Iraq. The Iraq war resulted in the death of 4,424 US military members and cost taxpayers $2.4 trillion.
• FOR Death Penalty & Harsh Drug Sentences
Harsher mandatory minimum sentences for drug use, civil asset forfeiture without a conviction, and imposing death penalty for drug related murders –
this is Joe Biden’s legacy. He voted for both the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986 and its 1988 counterpart and claimed George H. Bush’s war on drugs
was “not tough enough, bold enough, or imaginative enough.”
As you can see, Uncle Joe is a standup guy. These reasons alone are worthy of our votes.
