To America’s Electorate: We Have a Problem

Moving forward in this election year, the voters of this country are confronted with a very serious problem, which was on full display during the recent presidential debate. The problem is the two designated candidates representing the Republican and Democratic Parties.  For the past year, President Joe Biden has struggled with his health, both from a mental and physical standpoint. His problems are being attributed to his age. At 81, is he now too old to run for office again? And if he wins, will he be able to serve a full four-year term? This is the concern of the voters. During the recent presidential debate, all of his frailties were on display. He struggled to complete sentences, and often, when he did complete one, he became rather incoherent right at the end. His tone in his voice was extremely weak, and often, he just stared as if in a trance. For that particular performance, it was apparent to the entire country as well as the world that he was not up to the task of managing the affairs of the state for another four years. A number of leaders within the Democratic Party have raised the possibility of replacing the President with a younger candidate. However, therein lies the problem. Unless Biden voluntarily withdraws from the race and releases all of his pledged delegates, there is no way he can be replaced. At this juncture in the process, it does not appear that he is inclined to bow out. …

Moving forward in this election year, the voters of this country are confronted with a very serious problem, which was on full display during the recent presidential debate. The problem is the two designated candidates representing the Republican and Democratic Parties. 

For the past year, President Joe Biden has struggled with his health, both from a mental and physical standpoint. His problems are being attributed to his age. At 81, is he now too old to run for office again? And if he wins, will he be able to serve a full four-year term? This is the concern of the voters. During the recent presidential debate, all of his frailties were on display. He struggled to complete sentences, and often, when he did complete one, he became rather incoherent right at the end. His tone in his voice was extremely weak, and often, he just stared as if in a trance. For that particular performance, it was apparent to the entire country as well as the world that he was not up to the task of managing the affairs of the state for another four years.

A number of leaders within the Democratic Party have raised the possibility of replacing the President with a younger candidate. However, therein lies the problem. Unless Biden voluntarily withdraws from the race and releases all of his pledged delegates, there is no way he can be replaced. At this juncture in the process, it does not appear that he is inclined to bow out. Those who would like to replace him and the others who still support his candidacy can only hope that he overcomes his disabilities that are quite visible, and from what the country has observed so far in the campaign, that is a long shot.

Given the serious problem confronting the Democratic Party, it would appear that the Republicans have a clear path to the presidency. But that is not the case because they also have a problem, and it is the convicted felon, twice impeached, narcissistic liar of a candidate, Donald Trump. During the 90-minute debate, it is factual that he lied over 30 times. It is narcissism that drives his lies. He has to always look good. He also lies to bolster his opportunity to win back the presidency. No doubt lying is a moral deficiency, and it is only one of the many with Trump. The voters are seeking more civility from both the candidates. That did not happen in that debate. 

This presidential campaign must, at some point, shift focus and become policy-driven rather than personality-driven. That is what the American voter wants from someone who desires to manage the country’s affairs. And that is not what they are getting, and that is a problem as we move swiftly toward November 5, election day.
