What does Joe Biden stand for?
It's a simple question. I know what Bernie stood for: medicare for all, working class, raise minimum wage, and free college. I know what Trump stands for: make America great, wall, border security, and anti-outsourcing. But what defining quality represents Biden? He comes across as a generic flip flopper. That's why I'm not voting for him. No bipartisan message whatsoever. Only partisan Democrats are satisfied with the message "I'm not Trump."

Mr Doddard sits when he appears at all, is so listless he wears a mask so it could be a staff double. Doddard hardly stands anywhere or at anytime at all. Seems to favour the Communist Qinese. They're destroying democracy in British Hong Kong the way they crushed students for a democratic society under army tanks in Chinaman Square.

Maybe a little history of WHAT THE DEMOCRITS have as PART of their ACTUAL HISTORY you will know if you RESEARCH things instead of listening to their NONSTOP LIES. These are some of the things BIDEN and the DEMOCRITS have stood for for many years.
When you think about racial equality and civil rights, which political party comes to mind?
The Republicans? Or, the Democrats?
Most people would probably say the Democrats.
But this answer is incorrect.
Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil
rights initiative, and has a long history of discrimination.
The Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, perpetrated lynching's, and fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s.
In contrast, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an anti-slavery party.
Its mission was to stop the spread of slavery into the new western territories with the
aim of abolishing it entirely.
This effort, however, was dealt a major blow by the Supreme Court.
In the 1857 case Dred Scott v. Sanford, the court ruled that slaves aren’t citizens;
The seven justices who voted in favor of slavery?
The two justices who dissented?
The slavery question was, of course, ultimately resolved by a bloody civil war.
The commander-in-chief during that war was the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln – the man who freed the slaves.
Six days after the Confederate army surrendered, John Wilkes Booth, a Democrat,
assassinated President Lincoln.
Lincoln’s vice president, a Democrat named Andrew Johnson, assumed the presidency.
But Johnson adamantly opposed Lincoln’s plan to integrate the newly freed slaves
into the South’s economic and social order.
Johnson and the Democratic Party were unified in their opposition to the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery; the 14th Amendment, which gave blacks citizenship; and the 15th Amendment, which gave blacks the vote.
All three passed only because of universal Republican support.
During the era of Reconstruction, federal troops stationed in the south helped secure
rights for the newly freed slaves.
and 22 black Republicans served in the US Congress by 1900.
The Democrats did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935.
But after Reconstruction ended, when the federal troops went home, Democrats roared back into power in the South.
They quickly reestablished white supremacy across the Hundreds of black men were elected to southern state legislatures as Republicans,
region with measures like black codes – laws that restricted the ability of blacks to own property and run businesses.
And they imposed poll taxes and literacy tests, used to subvert the black citizen’s
right to vote.
And how was all of this enforced?
By terror -- much of it instigated by the Ku Klux Klan, founded by a Democrat, Nathan Bedford Forrest. As historian Eric Foner - himself a Democrat - notes:
“In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.
President Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, shared many views with the Klan.
He re-segregated many federal agencies, and even screened the first movie ever played at the White House - the racist film “The Birth of a Nation,” originally entitled
A few decades later, the only serious congressional opposition to the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 came from Democrats.
Eighty percent of Republicans in Congress supported the bill.
Less than 70 percent of Democrats did.
Democratic senators filibustered the bill for 75 days, until Republicans mustered the
few extra votes needed to break the logjam.
And when all of their efforts to enslave blacks, keep them enslaved, and then keep them from voting had failed, the Democrats came up with a new strategy: If black people are going to vote, they might as well vote for Democrats.
As President Lyndon Johnson was purported to have said about the Civil Rights Act,
“I’ll have them n*****s voting Democrat for two hundred years.
So now, the Democratic Party prospers on the votes of the very people it has spent much of its history oppressing.
Democrats falsely claim that the Republican Party is the villain, when in reality it’s
the failed policies of the Democratic Party that have kept blacks down.
Massive government welfare has decimated the black family.
Opposition to school choice has kept them trapped in failing schools.
Politically correct policing has left black neighborhoods defenseless against violent crime.
So, when you think about racial equality and civil rights, which political party should come to mind?

Biden has a lot of positions on various issues. But in terms of contrasting him to Trump I'd say he stands for good government, integrity, and a more honorable and normal American politics. That's what he's offering and it's one of the reasons that he won the Democratic primary and that he's doing so well in the general election. If Bernie Sanders had won, he'd probably be going after Trump for being a plutocrat and giving everything away to the rich. Biden has some of that same language too. But his main argument is that Trump is a terrible president in terms of administration, a corrupt figure when it comes to the rule of law, and a divisive danger when it comes to politics. Even though Biden's programmatic policy platform is the most left wing in American history, he is in many ways running an old school conservative (in the original Edmund Burke sense) campaign. He's promising to return to function of American government and the tenor of American politics to a more normal version which we used to have in the past, even as he advances America on a bunch of policy fronts.

Biden has an entire website that answers this question. Most recently he wants a stimulus package to get us through this pandemic.

Sorry to let you know this, but "I'm not Trump" is completely satisfying to the entire rest of the world outside of Trump's moron base.
