Given the clear and present danger posed by climate change, the crisis of healthcare in America, and the growing divide between rich and poor, the 2020 presidential election is a critical moment in American history. This is further underscored by the fact that Donald Trump is the individual who presides over this current state of affairs.

We, the undersigned, know we cannot afford another four years of Trump. In order to defeat Trump, a candidate must not only present a compelling platform to the American people, but must also be sound of mind in order to convincingly defend that platform in the general election. We are acutely aware of numerous instances that demonstrate that Joe Biden is not simply gaffe prone, as has been suggested, but indeed, in our view, is exhibiting signs of significant cognitive difficulties. Not only do his numerous public episodes of memory loss, confusion, and telling of outright untruths mark him as someone incapable of effectively debating Donald Trump, who has already begun to capitalize on these worrisome behaviors, they also suggest Biden's inability to effectively govern as commander in chief of the world's only nuclear super power. While critics might point out that these conclusions are not grounded in medical diagnosis, in reality the election will be swayed by the general perception of the fitness of the candidate, in this case drawn significantly from observations of widely circulated and troubling public performances.

It is for this reason that we, the undersigned, are indicating that we have no confidence in Joe Biden, who we reasonably believe to be cognitively unfit for the office of president. Furthermore, we do not support the nomination of a candidate who we strongly believe, for these very reasons, to be incapable of defeating Donald Trump. We demand the Democratic National Committee, spokespeople for the Democratic Party, and the superdelegates who will decide a contested convention, to use their endorsements and authority to ensure the nomination of a candidate who is both popularly supported based on their stance on the issues, and who also demonstrates the cognitive capacity to defeat Trump and lead this nation. We will consider the nomination of Joe Biden under the current circumstances to represent nothing short of a betrayal of the interests of the American people, with the likely outcome of depressed voter turnout due to lack of confidence in his capabilities, and  a second loss to Donald Trump.
