PRESIDENTIAL ENDORSEMENT: The Rangeview Raider Review endorses Joe Biden

Editorial Staff

COVID-19 cases are continuing to rise, confederate flags are being proudly flown across this nation, family members are dying, and our economy is grim. Our future depends on this election. Our democracy depends on this election.

The Rangeview Raider Review endorses former Vice President Joe Biden for the 2020 election. 

We have seen the destruction that Donald Trump has caused our nation; we’ve watched as he has lied to the People, has created greater divide within the nation, and has encouraged white supremacy. 

This election is more than politics, this election will decide our character as a country. We are taught about the racism and the hatred that the Ku Klux Klan was founded upon and we now watch as the same people support the re-election of Donald Trump. 

Rangeview High School’s beauty is our diversity. We do not have a predominantly white student body, and if you are not a white cis-male, your rights are at stake the election. 

Just days ago, now Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in after Trump and the republican party rushed to fill former SCOTUS Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat. Barrett has pushed the supreme court to now be an established conservative leaning court. It is a constitutional right for women to have abortions as confirmed in Roe v. Wade. With Barrett now on the court, Roe v. Wade could be overturned taking away a constitutional right. Regardless if Trump is re-elected, Barrett is an example of the destruction he has caused and will continue to cause within this country. 

Joe Biden is a man of experience. Biden has served as our Vice President under President Barack Obama and set-up the greatest economy for Trump to walk into. Biden has real plans that will positively affect the working class. He has plans to expand healthcare — which is especially important now given the pandemic we are experiencing another wave that is being downplayed by Trump. 

Biden knows and believes that climate change is real and that policy action needs to happen. He believes in science, he trusts our brilliant scientists, and he is going to work towards a more viable environment that we can sustain. 

The results of this election are going to spark outrage and chaos for whomever wins. Trump has stated that he refuses a peaceful transfer of power if he were to lose. Four more years will obliterate our democracy. It is in everyone’s best interest, but especially our youth’s for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to win the 2020 election on November 3rd; that is why the Raider Review endorses Joe Biden for President of the United States.
