Received this e-mail from singer-songwriter James Taylor is support of former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign:
I'm reaching out personally to ask because this election is the most important one in my lifetime: can you chip in $16 to elect Joe Biden and defeat Donald Trump?
In just three years of Donald Trump's presidency, it feels like our government and America's place in the world has been hollowed out — like a pumpkin on Halloween. The only difference is that there's no light in there.
Instead, the White House is occupied by a puffed-up, self-absorbed, all-hat-and-no-cattle cowboy.
I don't say this lightly, but it's become more and more clear that Donald Trump is an inept and corrupt narcissist. And rather than facing the challenge of leading America through a national crisis, he's refused to take responsibility and started lashing out at others.
We can't afford four more years of a man who cares more about his own power and celebrity than he does about the health and success of our country.
Joe Biden understands the concept of public service. It has been his life's commitment. Joe Biden hits the ground running. He comes to the White House with a full understanding of what the job of Chief Executive entails.
Joe Biden is the kind of leader we need right now. That's why I'm not sitting out this election, and why I'm asking you to stay in this fight with me.
With Joe Biden in the White House, we'll finally be able to get back to the issues that really matter.
We can protect access to healthcare. We can recommit to combating climate change. We can reverse Trump's corruption of our government and start rebuilding our economy.
But we can't do any of that unless we beat Donald Trump in November.
All my best,
