From President Biden's Speech Today on Voting


"Vice President Harris and I will be making it clear that there’s real peril in making raw power, rather than the idea of liberty, the centerpiece of the common life.

The Founders understood this.  The women of Seneca Falls understood this.  The brave, heroic foot soldiers of the Civil Rights Movement understood this.  So must we.


This isn’t about Democrats and Republicans; it’s literally about who we are as Americans.  It’s that basic.  It’s about the kind of country we want today, the kind of country we want for our children and grandchildren tomorrow.  And quite frankly, the whole world is watching."

There were several comments that were Alabama-centric, including:

He warned that history “will not be kind” to those who support election subversion. Putting an exclamation on the issue, he shouted,


“How do you want to be remembered? . . . Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?”
