On the same day the posthumous words of civil rights leader John Lewis were published, our president suggested not holding elections on November 3rd.
President Trump: "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???"
John Lewis: "Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble. Voting and participating in the democratic process are key. The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society. You must use it because it is not guaranteed. You can lose it."
Never in the history of the United States, not even during the Civil War, was the presidential election so much as delayed.
A sociopath, with no care for our welfare or safety, holds the highest office in the United States.
Make no mistake, we are all at risk, every citizen of every color and every creed, of losing our right to vote today - the very essence of what makes us a free democracy.
"When historians pick up their pens to write the story of the 21st century, let them say that it was your generation who laid down the heavy burdens of hate at last and that peace finally triumphed over violence, aggression and war. So I say to you, walk with the wind, brothers and sisters, and let the spirit of peace and the power of everlasting love be your guide." ~ John Lewis
