Thanks for taking the time to write, Iris, but I disagree. Either you’re against all murderous war criminals or you’re against none. Saying “Biden is a little better than Trump” – like so many “Progressives” are doing – is like saying “This blood-soaked lunatic gives out better mints than the last one did.”
Stop supporting murder.
We must Thankful of the Progress* that Has been made in the short 5 months since Biden is in. As the Philosopher Jagger said, “you can’t always get what you want, but if you Try sometimes, you’ll find you get what you need”. True~that. Count our blessings, and think of the alternative= the lummox trump.
Remember his toxicity; as just one example: President Trump’s approach to homelessness will be remembered mostly by what he said. On a 2019 trip to California, he called homeless encampments there disgusting and threatened to send in the federal government to sweep them off the streets. He never followed up, but his comments set the tone for a response that many homeless advocates found tepid and counterproductive. HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge says the Biden administration will be much more focused on getting people housed. And, yes even though he has been a politician many years, I believe to my very core, when he says we are at a true inflection point in history, he speaks sincerely, and his desire, and goals Are Progressive. So,
PLEASE give Biden a chance. If Not, you just feed the Greedy oligarch monster.

Homeless, lack of Broadband in the rural areas, Hunger, Poverty as well as poor roads & Highways, bridges, levy’s & rising water in coastal communities. Biden is absolutely correct to ‘go large’ to at least start on solutions! Period. Full Stop.
Biden means healthcare should be a right – as long as you can afford to pay for it.
