Jimmy Dore: Nobody Who Voted for the Iraq War Should Become the President’

Joe Biden might win, but the American people have lost yet again

While all the results aren’t in, it looks like­ly that Joe Biden will win the Pres­i­den­cy. This is a man who promised to veto Medicare for All dur­ing a pan­dem­ic, wants to give more mon­ey to police after sum­mer-long protests against police bru­tal­i­ty, and won’t com­mit to ban­ning frack­ing as we’re fac­ing the impend­ing doom of our species because of the cli­mate crisis.

As Jim­my talks about in the video, the left needs to grow its pow­er. I believe it no longer makes sense to work with­in the Demo­c­ra­t­ic par­ty, but I’m not yet sure what that looks like. One thing is for sure: we need lead­ers that will fight for uni­ver­sal health­care, fight for our beau­ti­ful plan­et, fight to defund (and even­tu­al­ly abol­ish) polic­ing as we know it, and put an end to the end­less wars.

There’s much work to be done.
