In picking Kamala Harris as his running mate, Joe Biden has confirmed the leftward drift of the Democratic Party. Voters now have even more reasons to “Say NO to Joe” on November 3rd.
America’s veterans believe in liberty, freedom, and patriotism – but on issue after issue, Kamala Harris is too extreme, advocating policies that would harm our nation.
Most veterans support the Second Amendment, but Kamala Harris is a strong advocate for restrictive gun control. “Upon being elected,” Harris said during the Democratic primaries, “I will give the United States Congress 100 days to get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws. And if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action.” It’s no surprise that Harris gets a puny 7% rating by the National Rifle Association.
Defunding the Police
America’s veterans tend to be strong supporters of law enforcement and crime prevention. With increased crime and violence in many cities, this is a crucial campaign issue. But Kamala Harris, in a recent interview on ABC-TV’s “The View,” made it clear that she is very sympathetic to the movement to “Defund the Police.”
Border security is a key element of defending our nation, a subject with which veterans are very familiar. When people cross our borders in violation of U.S. law, that is a serious crime. But Kamala Harris disagrees. During the Democratic primary campaign, in a televised discussion of illegal immigration, she said “we’re not going to treat people who are undocumented and cross borders as criminals – that’s correct, that is correct.”
Weak Foreign Policy
Most Americans, and especially most veterans, support a strong military and a foreign policy that puts the American people first, and that stands up to our nation’s enemies. But a Biden-Harris administration would return us to the Obama-Biden policy of weakness and appeasement. For example, in a interview on CBS-TV’s “Face the Nation,” Senator Harris said “I believe that we need to get back into the Iran nuclear deal.”
Pushing the Democrats to the Left
Joe Biden and the Democrats are already too extreme, but they are also under constant pressure from their far left base to go even further. During the Democratic primaries, Harris sharply criticized Biden for not being liberal enough(!).
During one of the Democratic primary debates, Harris blasted Biden, shouting loudly and angrily at him for not being sufficiently opposed to racism. And a few weeks later, at another debate, Harris accused Biden of not being sufficiently pro-abortion .
The addition of Kamala Harris to the Democratic ticket is a warning sign to the American people. As Biden’s running mate, she will make sure he keeps moving to the left. And, given Biden’s age and physical condition, let’s not forget that Harris would become President if Biden died in office or became incapacitated.
Say “NO” to Joe!
Of course, there is one way to prevent such an outcome, and that is to “Say ‘NO’ to Joe!” on November 3rd, and for the American people to vote against the Biden-Harris ticket.
