Biden Becomes Democratic Nominee For President
Former Vice President Joe Biden has earned enough delegates to officially secure the democratic nomination for president. His electoral victory in Guam last night allowed him to surpass the necessary 1991 delegates to claim the nomination in August at the democratic convention.
In his statement, Biden said Americans are hurting and have suffered so much loss. So many feel knocked down by the public health system and the economic crisis we are weathering, he said.
Today, we as a nation are facing so many challenges around the world. We continue to withdraw from international treaties and organizations. This is a very big mistake. No matter if you like it or not, the world has become a global village. Look at the coronavirus pandemic. This is a worldwide crisis. We also have a moral responsibility to help the rest of the world, especially the poor countries.
The education system continues to be the most serious issue. All across the nation for many years, the rich areas always have had better school districts than the poor. Students today don’t have equal opportunity to get their education, and without an education foundation, how are they going to find their future?
We are a nation that has lost so many manufacturing jobs in the last several decades. When you walk into any store, how many items are made in the USA? A lot of young students want to go to Wall Street to become stockbroker. They could easily become a millionaire overnight. But not too many of them want to study engineering or basic science.
As the leader of the world and the richest country, we should be looking at all the issues facing us from a global perspective. In this election we are not only just limited to who wins the national vote, but also how our vote will affect the rest of the world.
前副总统拜登在昨晚赢得关岛地区之初选后，已经获得超过一千九百九十一之选举人票， 正式登上民主党总统候选人之宝座 ，将于五个月后和川普争夺美国总统大位。
从全球经济和政治之观点看来， 美国不断宣称退出各种国际组织是非常错误之决定，我们是世界上最富有的国家， 有义务去承担对全球人口之贫穷带来之社会问题， 如果还想有独善其身之想法那是不可能的事。
因新冠疫情及佛罗伊德虐死事件带来的双重打击， 已经充分暴露了我们多年来的社会问题， 歧视有色人种是一个早已存在的结构性问题，最重要的还是我们给予人民教育机会之不均衡，全国国民基本教育仍然是以地方区域性来实施， 税收丰厚之富人区， 其学区必然优于贫困学区， 久而久之，非裔及少数族裔地区之学童都已输在起跑点上。
这些亟待国家领导人来解决之大方针大问题， 是我们选民即将在五个月后来共同决定，我们欣见拜登将角逐大位， 这也是我们有史以来面对国难当头， 世局混乱之时，决定世界命运的一次选举。
