Take it from a Delawarean: America does not want to see President Biden–By ZOE CALLAWAY September 23, 2020
At the Democratic National Convention, presidential hopeful Joe Biden told the audience*, “This is a life-changing election. This will determine what America is going to look like for a long, long time.” Based on the status of his beloved Delaware, we should all be wary.
I’m a young Delawarean who didn’t get to experience life with duPont, General Motors, or the banking boom, but I come from a multi-generation family of Delawareans who remember when this was the place to be. In my 24 years here, I’ve seen enough to know that we don’t want the rest of America to resemble the current First State. The first concern is bringing the “Delaware Way,” where political pals make sure each other’s bills are moved and help to hand-pick who will follow them in major political offices, to the national level. The Delaware Way may be cherry-picking successors based on friends and deals, but isn’t the friendly operation Biden makes it out to be. It is corrupt and exactly what is wrong with politics.
