Here’s just a few.
First of all, Biden doesn’t offer “alternative facts” which for years have been so thoroughly embraced by Trump’s constituents.
Second, Biden favors stronger gun laws, especially raising the age when young men can buy guns. Research tells us that young men’s minds are still subject to fantasy reasoning until they are 25.
Republicans in Congress are “bought” by the gun lobbyists. So, for profits, these companies and their dealers endorse regular mass shootings and deny restrictions on gun sales.
Mitch McConnell, while denying, along with his Republican colleagues, that guns are not the problem, argues for mental health money, which is okay but hardly a cure for the billions of guns in America. Yes, the 2nd Amendment gets cited often, but no AR-15s existed in 1791.

High profile shooting cases get massive publicity, but many shootings don’t.
Read here why.
Across America, people are afraid. Nearly a third said they can’t go anywhere without worrying about being the victim of a mass shooting, according to a 2019 survey.https://t.co/V4Wy8U4I8M

Quotes from the above article:
Take this weekend in Chicago. On Monday, a rooftop shooter opened fire into crowds gathered for an Independence Day parade in a Chicago suburb, killing at least seven people and wounding some 30.
Less talked about, Chicago Police say 68 people were shot in the city between Friday at 6 p.m. and just before midnight on Monday. Eight of them died.
Most gun violence in America is related to seemingly ordinary disputes that spin out of control and someone goes for a gun. Often, the victim and the shooter know one another. They are co-workers and acquaintances, siblings, and neighbors. They are killed in farming villages, small towns, and crowded cities.
They are people like David Guess, a 51-year-old small-town father of four who had struggled with addiction and who police say was shot by an acquaintance and dumped in an Alabama forest near a place called Chicken Foot Mountain.
Many Republican citizens still believe Trump’s re-election was stolen and hate anyone who would stand in the way of Republicans putting in voting laws that install Trump’s corrupt poll watchers in states where Republicans control the legislatures.
Trump hates paper ballots as it helps facilitate voting for the handicapped and people who can’t miss work or find polling places purposely put too far away. Does that latter reason sound familiar like the racism that unlays current Trump Republican political orthodoxy?
Many Republicans celebrated our conservative Catholic Supreme Court’s killing of Roe, though our Catholic President will try to get Congress to pass a restoration of this unwarranted FIRST removal of a Constitutional right in our history.

No chance with the present divided Congress of reversing Roe’s killing with a national law authorizing permanently abortion choice for women.
Shall I go on or will my speaking to the Democratic choir ever invoke a wakeup in independent voters or get a change from enough GOP voters to give this corrupt GOP a drubbing? Sadly, these GOP voters are voters who apparently like more pollution, as provided by fossil fuel companies who now buy political power and got a big pass from the Supreme Court just this past week.
Trump has proved that hatred is a salable commodity to a frightening number of Americans who prefer absurd theories about “replacement” and how the use of mail in ballots are a main basis for voting fraud.
Under Trump and his GOP in just one term, we have observed a great, successful republic being attacked by his dangerous coup attempt with a future attempt in prospect if Republicans fail to take illegal control of voting by 2024.
Damn near everything wrong with this country is caused by Republicans
Mass shootings, no reproductive rights, voter suppression, prolonging the pandemic, creating "laws" which have taken everyone's rights, voting "no" then complaining, limited education

Key fact to remember: A Donald Trump indictment and even his conviction won’t change the basic hatred and motivation for power by Trump type Republicans who have racist biases and full willingness to use Trump’s tools to keep power.
Generating maximum hatred of Biden fits their game plan’s main objective, but what has he done to deserve such attacks?
Inflation, gas prices, Ukraine or gun terrorism at home are NOT reasons to blame or hate a President who has faced a Trump engendered malaise unique in our history
Only voting these miscreants out in the midterms can help our floundering republic begin its road to recovery.
