Wish We Could Nominate Bernie for President

Joe Biden seems to have raped Tara Reade. Let us be clear what rape is, my definition. Rape is when a person is penetrated or violated against their will. There is trauma associated with the act of rape. I belief Tara Reade’s claims. She says she was penetrated by Joe’s fingers.

She shared her story with her mother, brother, and a neighbor. The probability is high that she is telling the truth and Joe Biden is lying and denying what he knows to be true. I don’t believe him, and I don’t like him for President when Bernie is so obviously the better candidate. Due to the Coronavirus, the Democratic Convention has been cancelled so we won’t have a chance to nominate Bernie Sanders.

There are examples of men who got the job but there was unethical behavior being tolerated. Brett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas both won seats on the Supreme Court. Joe Biden was the lead senator in the Thomas hearing.

John Edwards lost power when running for president. From the internet:

Nov. 12, 2013— — John Edwards was once a titan in the Democratic Party, one who, just seven years ago, was considered a top contender for the White House, until he was caught in one of the most sensational sex scandals in American history.”

This was only 7 years ago. We are in shock since our current president has sex abuse claims by 25 woman. As a survivor myself, 25 claims is just ridiculous, but one claim isn’t good in my opinion.

It is time for me to make known my two sexual violations. The first was at 17 as a college freshman at the outstanding University of Michigan Engineering school in 1977. I was working at the Burger King and my boss would not stop asking me out. After a month, I finally said okay. My virginity was lost on a country road between Tecumseh and Ann Arbor that night.

He moved into my dorm room and wanted unprotected sex every night. Two months later, I was pregnant. Thanks to cold medicine, alcohol and a little pot, I miscarried my unwanted baby. I finally had the courage to tell him to leave me alone and I quit my job. I feared him and felt destroyed that I lost my virginity this way. He goes down in my book as “Joey the Rapist.”

My next rape occurred in Armenia in 1983 when I was 23. Two men were coming to events with us. One night, me and another young lady and the two men went for drinks. We were both mickey-finned and both raped. Mickey-fin is when a drink is spiked so that a woman cannot defend herself. I left first and was force to give oral sex.

Once I got home, I told my sister what happened. The Soviets had listening devices in the hotel rooms. The next morning, that man was missing his front teeth and was not seen again. I was ashamed but was satisfied that he paid for his crime. I was in a committed relationship and told my boyfriend what happened. He never said a word to me about it. What could he do?

On the ethical side of things, raping a woman is reason for a man to attack another man for the crime. All religions believe the man is to protect and cherish women. If you want to argue this, I ask you to argue with me about it. Having been raped twice, I could kill rather than let it happen again. God made me beautify and no rapist will get another chance at me. For me or any of my sisters. Watch Out.

Joey Biden’s interview with Mika Brzezinski (May 1st Morning Joe) was very telling. His defense is “find me the complaint form”. He called her coming forward as “irrelevant” I got so angry. I do not want my choice based on who violated fewer women. Bull Shit!

Bernie Sanders has the history and policies to make the right decisions. The debate between Biden and Sanders was obviously a win for Bernie. The Michigan primary was before the debate. That is a problem since Joey, creepy sleepy Joe, does not seem to have original ideas. For example, he has no idea about how to handle the current crisis in my opinion. My answer would be to stop Trump’s provoking China and ask the international community for help.

My call to action: Ask Bernie to be our next President of the United States of America!
