Why I will not vote for Joe Biden

If you are a Democrat, you are probably asking yourself: "In a race between Snow White and the 7 Dwarves who should vote for?" Well, the answer is clear: Vote Republican.

OK, I have already explained why I am not voting for Hillary Clinton and all the less known Nut Jobs. Now, I will explain why I am not voting for the rest of the Democrats running for president. Stating with ... drum roll please ... Joe Biden. (OK, so I am doing them in Alphabetical order. Sue me. I was raised by Republicans. I know my ABC's)

In 1966, while in law school, Biden married Neilia Hunter. They had three children, Joseph R. III (Beau), Robert Hunter, and Naomi. His wife and infant daughter died in a car accident shortly after he was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972. His two young sons, Beau and Hunter, were seriously injured in the accident, but both eventually made full recoveries. Biden was sworn into office from their bedside. He allowed himself to be persuaded not to resign in order to care for them, therefore putting his political ambitions above his family.

Biden took office on January 3, 1973, at age 30, becoming the fifth-youngest U.S. Senator in United States history. He has since won additional terms easily, defeating James H. Baxter, Jr. in 1978, John M. Burris in 1984, M. Jane Brady in 1990, and Raymond J. Clatworthy in 1996 and 2002, usually with about 60 percent of the vote. He is now the longest-serving U.S. Senator in Delaware history. He is an advocate for Amtrak, the quasi-governmental corporation that was organized on May 1, 1971, to provide intercity passenger train service in the United States . Critics assert that Amtrak has proven incapable of operating as a business and does not provide valuable transportation services meriting public support. It is basically a "mobile money-burning machine." (Which would explain why a tax and spend Democrat like Joe Biden supports it.)

In February 1988, Biden was hospitalized for two brain aneurysms which kept him from the Senate for seven months.

He authored the landmark Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA), which contains a broad array of measures to combat domestic violence and provides billions of dollars in federal funds to address gender-based crimes. Although part of this legislation later was struck down as unconstitutional, it was reauthorized in 2000 and 2005. (Democrats are not known for following the constitution to appease the masses.)

Throughout his career Biden has vehemently opposed tort reform, while continuously supporting stricter bankruptcy laws. (Basically, he is in favor of allowing unlimited frivolous lawsuits and against allowing Joe Common from filing for bankruptcy. Lawyers, you got to love them.)

Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, Biden was supportive of the Bush administration's efforts, calling for additional ground troops in Afghanistan and agreeing with the administration's assertion that Saddam Hussein needed to be eliminated. The Bush administration rejected an effort Biden undertook with Senator Richard Lugar to pass a resolution authorizing military action only after the exhaustion of diplomatic efforts. (Basically act like the French and use words not troops to enforce foreign policy.)
In November 2006, Biden co-wrote the ludicrous Biden-Gelb Plan for Iraq . This "plan" calls for breaking Iraq into 3 nations and giving Iraq 's major groups a measure of autonomy in their own regions. (Kurds, Shiites, and Sunnis). (How well did East and West work out for Germany ? How well did North and South work out for Korea and Vietnam ? Do Democrats not study history at all?????)

His plan also call for the de-distributing the wealth in Iraq . Guaranteeing Sunnis — who have no oil rights — a proportionate share of oil revenue and reintegrating even those who have fought against Coalition forces. (International Robinhood Syndrome … the new IRS.)

His plan also calls for a French Style diplomatic offensive to enlist the support of the major powers and neighboring countries like Iran for a political settlement in Iraq and create an Oversight Contact Group to enforce regional commitments. (Having the fox guard the hen house wow I wonder why farmers never thought of that. Guess because it won't work. If you do think having your neighboring country help govern you is a good Idea just ask Tibet how China 's help is working out for them.)

In 1987, Joe Biden ran as a Democratic presidential candidate. When the campaign began, he was considered a frontrunner because of his moderate image. However, the campaign ended when he was accused of plagiarizing a speech by Neil Kinnock, then-leader of the British Labour Party. (A Democrat that is not capable of original thought ... do tell.)

While speaking to a group of Indian-Americans in Delaware , Biden stated in regards to his relationship with the Indian-American community: "I've had a great relationship. In Delaware , the largest growth in population is Indian Americans — moving from India . You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking." (Don't get me wrong. It great to see a democrat that is not Politically Correct unfortunately, he quickly cave to political pressure and spun his racist comment to his advantage.) When asked to explain his racist comments, Biden spokesperson Margaret Aitken stated "The Senator admires, supports and respects the Indian-American community... The point Senator Biden was making is that there has been a vibrant Indian-American community in Delaware for decades. It has primarily been made up of engineers, scientists and physicians, but more recently, middle-class families are moving into Delaware and purchasing family-run small businesses. (The Indian-American activists who were on the receiving end of Biden's comment then smiled and said "Thank you, Come Again.")

On January 31, 2007, Biden took his first steps into the presidential campaign. He started off with more of a launch pad disaster than a bang by making racial comments about his competitor Senator Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Once again he quickly cave to political pressure and apologized. Jesse Jackson telephoned Biden and reported afterward "Senator Biden...assured me that he regrets that his remarks were misinterpreted. He was serious and contrite. To me, this was a gaffe, not a statement about his philosophy or ideology." (Had a Republican made the same comments he would have been forced to resign his post.)

So, where does this professional lawyer / closet racist stand on the issues?

Social Issues:

Abortion: He claims to be neutral on abortion but he has joined with Democrats in voting against parental notification and a ban on abortions on military bases. (You can't pray in uniform but you can get a free abortion.) Biden's record on abortion is generally in favorable towards the practice receiving a 100% rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America in four of the last five years. He also has recently appoligized for voting in favor of a 1999 bill to ban in most circumstances "partial birth abortion" and on the 2003 Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.

Stem Cell Research: Biden supports federal funding for stem cell research and voted to expand development and voted against a 1998 ban on cloning.

The Gay Agenda: Biden voted and against the Federal Marriage Amendment which would have defined marriage in the United States as a union of one man and one woman. The FMA also would prevent judicial extension of marriage rights to same-sex or other unmarried couples, as well as preventing people from having multiple spouses.. He supports gay unions and favors adding sexual orientation to the criteria for a hate crime. (Rumor has it him and Senator Craig are "bathroom buddies".)

War on Drugs: Biden favors diverting drug offenders out of the nation's prison system. He is against making stricter laws for drug offenses.

Protecting Children: He voted against restrictions on children obtaining violent videos.

Domestic issues:

Crime: Joe Biden has been given a 71% approval rating from Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) indicating a pro-rehab record on crime. He voted against limiting death penalty appeals indicating his opposition to the death penalty.

Education: Biden received a 91% voting record from the National Education Association (NEA) showing a pro-teacher union voting record. He supports is against student vouchers and voluntary prayer in schools. He voted in favor of the No Child Left Behind Act in 2001, but has subsequently called that vote "a mistake."

Energy: Biden opposes drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (where there is free and easy oil) and supports governmental funding to find new energy sources (which will cost tax payers billions if not trillions of dollars a year and not provide any energy in the foreseeable future. He has totally bought in to the whole global warming myth and probably really believes that Al Gore invented the internet.)

Gun Control: Biden was given an F by the National Rifle Association (NRA) showing a pro-gun control voting record. He supports reinstating a Federal ban on semi-automatic firearms and voted no against prohibition of lawsuits against gun manufacturers. (He also is in favor of allowing Rosie O'Donnell to sue Hershey and Mc Donald's for her butt being so big.)

Immigration: He supports guest-worker visas. He voted to provide Social Security to illegal immigrants and supports a path to citizenship. (Another example of Democrats maintaining there voting base by maintaining a lower class.)

Homeland Security: He voted to preserve habeas corpus rights to the alleged terrorists serving in Guantanamo Bay .

Economic Issues: Biden is against the Bush administration's tax cuts. (A Democrat that wants more of my tax money? … that's par for the course.) Biden was given a 32% approval rating from the United States Chamber of Commerce. (A Democrat that is bad for the economy? … again par for the course.) He voted yes on restrictions on personal bankruptcy. Biden was given a 100% approval rating from AFL-CIO indicating a heavily pro-union voting record. Biden was given a 42% approval rating from the Cato Institute, revealing a mixed record on free trade. He supports funding for health care to allow all people access regardless of citizenship. Biden is opposed to the privatization of social security (which would have bailed it out of the toilet) Voted in support of welfare block grants. (Another Democrat who thinks he know best how to hand out my tax money.)

Foreign Policy

Iraq: Biden voted in favor of the invasions of Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003. He has since said that he believes it was a mistake to support the Iraq war. (He flip-flopped on his stance to gain support, despite the fact that we are winning the war. I briefly touched on his absurd plan for Iraq above.)

Africa: Biden favors an American deployment of troops to Sudan in order to end the genocide in Darfur . He believes that the mission can be accomplished with 2,500 troops. (However, he was one of the ones saying we went into Iraq with too few troops. And has yet to say how he would propose winning Darfur 's Civil War.)

North Korea: Biden favors open dialogue with North Korea and describes them as a "paper tiger" unable to directly cause harm to America . (This show a loose grabs on reality because the North Korean situation one of the four most important things that the next president is going to have to deal with along with China , Iran and Iraq .)

Iran: Biden favors French style direct diplomacy with Iran but supports United Nations style sanctions on the regime if it does not comply with American demands. (Idle threats … wonder if Iran thinks we will be a "paper tiger" under a Democrats rule?) In 2007 Biden voted against a measure to declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization despite irrefutable evidence that they were supplying bombs, weapons, troops and training to Iraq based terror groups.

OK, my take?

Unless you want to be speaking Spanish to the government assigned gay doctor you're getting your free abortion for your unborn baby because of it's massive birth defects from chemicals in the Chinese products that were allowed in un-inspected, the nuclear blasts from North Korea's attacks on the United States and the chemical attacks from Islamic terrorist; DON'T VOTE FOR BIDEN
