Almost 50 years ago, I gave a little blood on that bridge in Selma,
Alabama, for the right to vote. I am not going to stand by and let
the Supreme Court take the right to vote away from us. You must get
out there and push and pull and make America what America should be
for all of us. We must say to the Congress, Fix the Voting Rights Act!
Rep. John Lewis
TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY?
Former President Barack Obama returned to the spotlight on 09-07-18 and delivered
an aggressive rebuke to Trump and the Republican Party. President Obama gave the
speech at the University of Illinois where he received an award for ethics in
government. This was his second major address after remaining silent since leaving
the White House. President Obama said Trump capitalized on resentment and upheaval
in the country, and he reserved his harshest words for congressional Republicans,
whom he said were "abdicating their responsibilities" by failing to check Trump.
