I did not vote for Biden, but


this type of public display that attacks the office of the President of the United States, regardless of who holds the chair at that time, is demeaning to the office, the country, and what America stands for. We will always have someone unpopular to some in the office of the Presidency, but to try and impugn their integrity by doing nothing but chastising them is futile and harmful to the country.

Work with people of integrity to defeat them at the polls if you don't like who is there. Don't "teach" by your actions, our children, or imply to the world that we don't like the office of the Presidency or they will take up the cause and try to unseat it. My guess is that if they do and we are ruled by some other form of government then you won't be asked to stop saying that, you'll be physically silenced. We are a country where the opinion of the majority rules the day and not the color, religion, or political party and history clearly shows that the majority opinion does change and ebbs and flows..peacefully....in most cases. If you can't change the minds of the majority regarding a political argument with out shouting down your opponent, then your argument is weak and better ones exist.

I don't care for the politics of Biden, but I will defend the integrity of that office to operate for the four years of whomever holds it against all foes because in the long term, in doing so it is good for America.
