Election 2020 is just a memory now. So, this is the right time to look back at some of the differences between the candidates. As each candidate made ambitious and appealing promises, only one would inevitably win the presidency
The presidential election 2020 scheduled for November 3rd, 2020. Before the final round, all the White House aspirants were actively engaging with the public, trying their best to win their hearts so that they could confirm their ticket to the Oval Office.
Among all the candidates, Joe Biden and Donald Trump are the highlights of the election campaign. If you don’t know who they are, Joe Biden is the Democratic candidate for the elections 2020, whereas Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for the United States’ 46th President.
Both the candidates had been campaigning for months. One side, Joe Biden, the country’s Vice Present from 2009 to 2017, presses the public to vote for him if they want record investments in the American industry. On the other hand, Donal Trump, America’s current president, takes pride in the country’s significant financial recovery during his tenure. And promises the nation even more significant economic achievements if he gets another chance to serve his people.
Who did you support? Trump or Biden? Don’t worry if you could not decide between the two because we have compared the pros and cons of voting for both Trump and Biden to determine who you would pick.
Since the day Trump assumed the office of the president, he has been very concerned about the stocks’ performance. Many times he mentioned S&P500 and talked about the index. But, there is one thing that gives him the most pride—the highest S&P 500 index in United States history.
Yes, you read it right!
This year on February 19, the S&P 500 raised to the highest numbers ever recorded in history. The president could not control his happiness on this occasion, as he tweeted immediately, “Highest Stock Market In History, By Far!”
Replacement of NAFTA with USMCA:
United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement is a trade deal between the US, Mexico, and Canada. That deal replaced an agreement called NAFTA or North American Free Trade Agreement. Under this new deal, the US farmers will have more access to the Canadian Dairy Market, and experts predict that 28,000 jobs would manifest in the country because of this protocol. If elected, chances are Trump would continue working on the agreements that comply with the policy of ‘America First.’
Building stabilized relations with other countries:
America and North Korea have not been at good terms for the past few years. After Trump visits Noth Korea on June 29, the two nations would now see a round of good relations.
But, what’s so special about this?
The trip is memorable because Trump is the first president in the country’s history to visit North Korea. His journey to North Korea was a step forward to developing stabilized relations with the world’s nations.
Because of his racist remarks:
When the Black Lives Matter protest strikes the country, his message to Whites is unmistakable: Be afraid. Those people — you know who I mean — is trying to take over your land. I will stop them.
He has no self-control:
There is another problem with the president. He can’t control himself. Many times he made obscene comments about people without anticipating the reaction from the public. Previously, he even called the women ‘ nasty,’ who didn’t approve of his policies.
Unfortunately, President Trump surrounds himself with corrupt personnel. In the last four years, six Trump associates got charged with federal crimes, and the latest name on the list is Steve Bannon. We’re not saying Donald Trump is guilty by association, but the optics aren’t favorable.
Biden has self-control:
Joe Biden is a man of high intellect. He has complete self-control and maintained good relations with other politicians. President Barrack Obama sent him to Ukraine to try to clean up corruption there. No doubt, due to his honesty and integrity.
Moreover, Biden never passed any lewd or racist remark and supported the BLM protests over racial discrimination. Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, recently had a conversation with Blake’s family, which Blake’s after described as speaking to an uncle and one of his sisters.
Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
Biden has worked for the right of women. On January 20, 1990, Biden introduced a bill that becomes the Violence against the Women Act(VAWA). This act addresses the problems of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Biden supported the Iraq war:
Senator Joe Biden voted for the Iraq war, which caused 4,424 US soldiers’ death and cost taxpayers $2.4 trillion.
Biden Supported the Mass Incarceration:
Joe Biden favored the Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which resulted in many people spending life sentences for minor crimes.
Biden was against Gay marriage and Abortion rights:
Senator Joe Biden voted for the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996, which defied gay marriages. Moreover, in 1982, he voted for a constitutional amendment meant to overturn the Supreme Court decision, which declared abortions legal.
No matter who you decided to vote for, the differences between Trump vs. Biden are stark. But only when looking through specific issues. In a general sense, Trump and Biden have a lot in common. I would even go so far as to say they are two sides of the same coin.
To further that last point, let’s look at Mail-in voting and how it doesn’t go far enough
I’m here to inform you all about the truth about mail-in voting. Specifically, the mail-in vote has nothing to do with suppression. And everything to do with disenfranchisement.
In essence, American politicians are undermining their policies by essentially closing the door behind them. That’s the whole point of the modern political machines. Get into power, and not let anyone follow you. Moreover, don’t even pass the torch.
With that said, the current COVID-19 pandemic only more exacerbates these points. So businesses shutting due to Covid-19 restrictions isn’t irony. It is by design. The government isn’t suppressing the vote. They are completely shutting it down.
Closed-door politics is why we have to continue to fight for our rights. Because nobody else will advocate for us, it is the year 2020, and we still vote like it’s the 1950s. More importantly, it feels as though I’m the only one asking why?
What good is all this technology when we can’t even vote with it? I’m serious too. The internet isn’t secure enough to utilize it to vote. My argument is there is no way something like that can be real unless we are asleep at the wheel.
It’s rather odd how tiny mailing strips of carved up trees is more secure than using a cell phone. But that’s the world we live in; that’s the world people accept. And until we stop taking it, it’s all we can expect going forward.
This voting rights issue is bigger than the right vs. left paradigm. Lack of choice and option affects us all negatively. And without some course correction, it all leads to the end of American citizens having any rights left at all.
If having no rights is what you want, then, by all means, continue the path the corporate overlords wish you to take. But when you are living under martial law, don’t complain to me. Please don’t say there weren’t any advocates for you in the media because we are right here.
We have got to start taking internet security seriously. Safety is paramount to having healthy communities. Right now, we don’t have those healthy communities. We have the opposite of healthy. What we have is more like we all fell down and fractured our ribs.
