Nothing can make age a non-factor in this Presidential campaign. Both men are old! But one is perceived by some as dynamic and more alert than the other.

One is a womanizing lying traitor against his sworn oath to uphold our Constitution and a convicted felon with other crimes yet untried.

The other one clearly an honest man with an excellent first term in handling complex issues with help from a competent staff who are not like many of Trump’s corrupt insiders such as Bannon, Meadows and Giuliani. Numerous competent, honorable members of Trump’s initial Presidential Administration left in dismay and disgust.

What has the June 27 debate determined? Facts: Biden will not step aside, and Trump will be his opponent.

Now we know that the only possible positive outcome for the USA and the free world on November 5th must be Trump’s defeat.

Trump has known since his multiple indictments that his only escape from serious conviction especially for his coup attempt will be reelection as President.

Biden with his long, distinguished record of public service stands as the main block to the succession of a ruthless greedy, corrupt GOP fashioned over years by the most dangerous incumbent in American history. Trump’s future team will be refashioned even more dangerously with toady loyalists picked to follow his orders.

The concerned outcries of Democratic partisans will not help Biden nor will minority candidates like Robert Kennedy.

Neither will constant expressions of concern about how Biden will perform for 4 years as that is now clearly irrelevant based on what will befall the USA in a 2nd Trump term!

Many Democrats get these facts. The forward plan must feature Biden’s ability to bring the contrasting issues Trump represents to enough voters to win.

Trump’s announced 2nd term intentions if drummed repeatedly into voters’ consciousness will SCARE average voters from both parties as the campaign grinds on and the Trump 2nd intentions get more and more attention

Few voters will fail to link Trump’s threats to democracy or his ignoring climate change in light of its current and future weather effects.

There are so many Trump plans to fear that all citizens will wonder how we got Trump in the first place.

In addition to the choice issue against women’s health by the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision was Trump’s refusal to allow passage of the bipartisan immigration bill as a first stop getting Congressional legislation which has been ignored for decades by by both parties. Immigration is a worldwide crisis precipitated by the unsustainable growth of human numbers from 1 billion in 1900 to 8 plus billion now.

If elected Trump will continue to block Ukraine funding which will help Putin. This neo-isolationism will harm our NATO alliance and elevate the risk of greater war.

Trump promises to cut more taxes for the rich, trying to kill the Affordable Care Act, closing the US Department of Education and attacking other key government departments such a Justice by putting in loyal toadies, deporting millions of alleged aliens, raising tariffs which hurts consumers, fostering Christian Nationalism, encouraging hate of LGBTQ citizens and all minorities, blocking gun control initiatives and too many more dangerous efforts to list here.

The outcome is in perilous doubt despite the massive negative media reactions to the above list, but Biden must lead the way to a dawning of what the above actions will mean for killing our democracy. We are a great nation and the absurdity of Trump’s claim to make a great country great again should galvanize and waken any citizen to the potential cataclysm of Trump again.

Yes, Biden and his Kamala Harris and their entire staff have primary responsibility for carrying the truth about losing to Trump to all voters.

Speaking of truth: Politifact did a marvelous job of rating each opponent in the June 27th Biden v Trump Debate.

They rated candidates on an equal number of statements (15 each) with false, mostly false, half false, half true, mostly true, and true.

We assigned percentages from 0, 25, 50, 50, 75, 100% respectively so that we could produce an overall truthfulness rating.

Trump was truthful 3.3% of the time. Biden was truthful 60% of the time. Biden was 18 times more truthful than Trump.

This election must be ranked the most crucial in our history. This time the enormity of the need to defeat this evil man and his collaborators rises to the level of defending our democracy as we did in WWII against Nazism!

Reasons to oppose Trump’s election may differ, but all citizens need to vote to defeat Trump on November 5th. The majority of our respected mass media needs to relentlessly express Trump’s reign as life threatening to our freedoms not only to us but to the entire free world.

Biden must get help from massive presentations of the facts by our mainstream media which Trump claimed was producing “fake news”!
