Barack Obama’s Plea to the Youth Vote

Barack Obama’s Plea for the Youth Vote to Rise Up Against Trump And Go Vote November 6, 2018

If the youth vote wakes up, as President Barack Obama suggests, they will find that there are enough new voters to potentially flip every contest in the USA.
Will there be a change of course? If it happens at all it will be due to young millennials voting for the first or second time.

Obama’s Address to the Youth of America on the Onset of the Midterm Congressional Elections

President Washington made the point that it is essential to American democracy that in a Government Of and By and For the People, there should be no permanent ruling class. There are only citizens who through their elected and temporary representatives determine our course. Because this is one of those pivotal moments when every one of us as citizens of the United States need to determine just who it is that we are, just what it is that we stand for, and as a fellow not as an ex-President.

New and Improved Book Release

I’m here to deliver a simple message, and that is that you need to vote. Because our democracy depends on you. Now some of you may think I’m exaggerating when I say this November’s elections are more important than any I can remember in my lifetime. I know politicians say that all the time. I have been guilty of saying it a few times particularly when I was on the ballot, but just a glance at recent headlines should tell you that this moment really is different. The stakes really are higher. The consequences of any of us sitting on the sidelines are more dire. It’s not as if we haven’t had big elections before or big choices to make in our history. In fact, as democracy has never been easy and our founding fathers argued about everything. We waged a civil war. We overcame depression we’ve learned from eras of great progressive change. Two periods of retrenchment.

Still most Americans alive today certainly the students who are here have operated under some common assumptions about who we are and what we stand for. Out of the turmoil of the Industrial Revolution and the Great Depression, America adapted a new economy. A 20th century economy guiding our free market with regulations to protect health and safety and fair competition. Empowering workers with union movements. Investing in science and infrastructure and educational institutions like yours. By strengthening our system of primary and secondary education and stitching together a social safety net. All of this led to unrivaled prosperity and the rise of a broad and deep middle class and the sense that if you worked hard you could climb the ladder of success. Now not everyone was included in this prosperity there was a lot more work to do and so in response to the stain of slavery and segregation and the reality of racial discrimination.

There’s Strength In Diversity

The civil rights movement not only opened new doors for African Americans but also opened up the floodgates of opportunity for women and Americans with disabilities, and LGBT Americans others to make their own claims to full and equal citizenship and, although discrimination remained a pernicious force in our society and continues to this day, and although there are controversies about how to best ensure genuine equality of opportunity, there’s been at least rough agreement among the overwhelming majority of Americans that our country is strongest when everybody’s treated fairly. When people are judged on the merits and the content of their character and not the color of their skin, or the way in which they worship God, or their last names. And that consensus then extended beyond our borders and from the wreckage of world war two we built a post-war web architecture system of alliances and institutions to underwrite freedom and oppose Soviet totalitarianism and to help poor countries develop and American leadership across the globe wasn’t perfect we made mistakes at times we lost sight of our ideals.

Fierce Arguments But Not fighting Words

We had fierce arguments about Vietnam and we had fierce arguments about Iraq. But thanks to our leadership, a bipartisan leadership, and the efforts of diplomats, and Peace Corps volunteers, and most of all thanks to the constant sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. We not only reduce the prospects of war between the world’s great powers. We’ve not only won the Cold War. We helped to spread a commitment to certain values and principles. Like the rule of law, and human rights, and democracy, and the notion of the inherent dignity, and worth, of every individual, and even those countries that didn’t abide by those principles. We’re still subject to shame and still had to at least give lip service to the idea and that provided a lever to continually improve the prospects for people around the world. That’s the story of America. A story of progress, fitful progress. Incomplete progress but progress and that progress wasn’t achieved by just a handful of famous leaders making speeches. It was won because of countless quiet acts of heroism and dedication by citizens. By ordinary people, many of them not much older than you there, was Won. Because rather than be bystanders to history ordinary people fought and marched and mobilized and built and yes voted to make history.

The Youth Could Make History November 6 2018

Of course there’s always been another darker aspect to America’s story. Progress doesn’t just move in a straight line. There’s a reason why progress hasn’t been easy and why throughout our history every two steps forward seems to sometimes produce one step back. Each time we painstakingly pull ourselves closer to our founding ideals that all of us are created equal endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights. The ideals that say every child should have opportunity and every man and woman in this country who’s willing to work hard should be able to find a job and support a family and pursue their small piece of the American dream. Our ideals that say we have a collective responsibility to care for the sick and the infirm and we have a responsibility to conserve the amazing bounty the natural resources of this country and of this planet for future generations. Each time we’ve gotten closer to those ideals somebody somewhere has pushed back.

Know That There Is An Enemy To Be Defeated

The status quo pushes back. Sometimes the backlash comes from people who are genuinely if wrongly fearful of change. More often it’s manufactured by the powerful and the privileged who want to keep us divided and keep us angry and keep us cynical. Because that helps them maintain the status quo and keep their power and keep their privilege. You happen to be coming of age during one of those moments. It did not start with Donald Trump. He is a symptom, not the cause. He’s just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years. Think about it. You’ve come of age in a smaller more connected world. Where demographic shifts and the winds of change have scrambled not only traditional economic arrangements, but our social arrangements and our religious commitments and our civic institutions. Most of you don’t remember a time before 9/11 when you didn’t have to take off your shoes at an airport. Most of you don’t remember a time when America wasn’t at war, or when money and images and information could travel instantly around the globe, or when the climate wasn’t changing faster than our efforts to address it, and this change has happened fast.

There Used To Be A Day…

Faster than any time in human history, and it created a new economy that has unleashed incredible prosperity, but it’s also upended people’s lives in profound ways. For those with unique skills or access to technology and capital, a global market has meant unprecedented wealth for those. Not so lucky for the factory worker, or the office worker, or even middle managers. Those same forces may have wiped out your job or at least put you in no position to ask for a raise. As wages slowed and inequality accelerated, those at the top of the economic pyramid have been able to influence government to skew things even more in their direction. Cutting taxes on the wealthiest Americans, unwinding regulations, and weakening worker protections, shrinking the safety net so you have come of age during a time of growing inequality. A fracturing of economic opportunity, and that growing economic divide compounded other divisions in our country.

Divided We Fall

Regional, racial, religious, cultural, and made it harder to build consensus on issues. It made politicians less willing to compromise which increased gridlock which made people even more cynical about politics. Then the reckless behavior of financial elites triggered a massive financial crisis 10 years ago. This was a crisis that resulted in the worst recession in any of our lifetimes and caused years of hardship for the American people. For many of your parents for many of your families, most of you weren’t old enough to to fully focus on what was going on at the time but, when I came into office in 2009 we were losing 800,000 jobs a month, 800,000 millions of people were losing their homes, many were worried we were entering into a second Great Depression. So we worked hard to end that crisis, but also to break some of these longer-term trends in the actions we took during that crisis returned the economy to healthy growth, and initiated the longest streak of job creation on record, and we covered another 20 million Americans with health insurance, and we cut our deficits by more than half. Partly by making sure the people like me, who’ve been given such amazing opportunities by this country, pay our fair share of taxes to help folks coming up behind me. 

Thanks Obama!

By the time I left office household income was near its all-time high, and the uninsured rate had hit an all-time low and wages were rising, and poverty rates were falling I mentioned all this just so when you hear how great the economy is doing right now let’s just remember when this recovery started. I’m glad it’s continued but when you hear about this economic miracle that’s been going on, when the job numbers come out, monthly job numbers and suddenly, Republicans are saying it’s America. I had to kind of remind them actually those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and 2016. Anyway I digress. so we made progress but and this is the truth. My administration couldn’t reverse 40 year trends in only eight years especially once Republicans took over the House of Representatives in 2010 and decided to block everything we did. Even things they used to support so we pulled the economy out of crisis but, to this day, too many people who once felt solidly middle-class still feel very real and very personal economic insecurity. Even though we took out Bin Laden, and wound down the war in Iraq, and our combat role in Afghanistan and got Iran to halt its nuclear program.

Danger Abroad Danger At Home

The world’s still full of threats and disorder that comes streaming through people’s televisions every single day. These challenges get people worried and it frays our civic trust. It makes a lot of people feel like the fix is in and the game is rigged and nobody’s looking out for them. Especially those communities outside our big urban centers. So even though your generation is the most diverse in history.

Don’t Get Fooled Again Millennials

With a greater acceptance and celebration of our differences than ever before.

How to vote - why vote Barack Obama on 2018 electionThose are the kinds of conditions that are ripe for exploitation by politicians who have no compunction and no shame about tapping into America’s dark history of racial and ethnic and religious division, appealing to tribe, appealing to fear, pitting one group against another, telling people that order and security will be restored if it weren’t for those who don’t look like us, or don’t sound like us, or don’t pray like we do. That’s an old playbook it’s as old as time and in a healthy democracy it doesn’t work. Our antibodies kick in and people of goodwill from across the political spectrum call out the bigots and the fear mongers and work to compromise, promote the better angels of our nature. But when there’s a vacuum in our democracy.

Go Out And Vote Early Or On Nov 6th

When we don’t vote. When we take our basic rights and freedoms for granted, when we turn away and stop paying attention, and stop engaging, and stop believing, and look for the newest diversion. The electronic versions of bread and circuses. Another voice has filled void. A politics of fear, and resentment, and retrenchment, takes hold, and demagogues promise simple fixes to complex problems. no promise to fight for the little guy even as they cater to the wealthiest and most powerful. No promise to clean up corruption and then plunder away. They start undermining norms that ensure accountability and try to change the rules to entrench their power further. They appeal to racial nationalism that’s barely bailed it failed at all sound familiar I understand this is not just a matter of Democrats versus Republicans or liberals versus conservatives.

A Party Changes When The Participants Change 

At various times in our history this kind of politics has infected both parties. Southern Democrats were the bigger defenders of slavery. It took a Republican President Abraham Lincoln to End it. Dixiecrats filibustered anti-lynching legislation, opposed the idea of expanding civil rights. Although it was a Democratic president in a majority Democrat Congress, spurred on by young marchers and protesters, that got the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act over the finish line. Those historic laws also got passed because of the leadership of Republicans like Illinois’ own Everett Dirksen. So neither party has had a monopoly on wisdom. Neither party has been exclusively responsible for us going backwards instead of forwards, but I have to say this.

Proof Of People Power – the Democratic Party

Because sometimes we hear ‘a plague on both your houses’ over the past few decades. It wasn’t true when Jim Edgar was a governor here in Illinois, or when Jim Thompson was governor. Got a lot of good Republican friends here in Illinois. But over the past few decades the politics of division of resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican Party. This Congress has championed the unwinding of campaign finance laws to give billionaires outside influence over our politics. Systematically they attacked voting rights to make it harder for young people and minorities and the poor to vote. Handed out tax cuts without regard to deficits. Slash the safety net wherever it could cast dozens of votes to take away health insurance from ordinary Americans. Embraced wild conspiracy theories like those surrounding Benghazi or my birth certificate. Rejected science. Rejected facts on things like climate change. Embraced a rising absolutism from a willingness to default on America’s debt by not paying our bills. To a refusal to even meet, much less consider, a qualified nominee for the Supreme Court because he happened to be nominated by a Democratic President.

Republican’t Nihilism

None of this is conservative. I don’t mean to pretend I am channeling Abraham Lincoln now, but that’s not what he had in mind I think when he helped form the Republican Party. It’s not conservative. It sure isn’t normal. It’s radical. It’s a vision that says the protection of our power and those who back us is all that matters, even when it hurts the country. It’s a vision that says the few who can afford high-priced lobbyists and unlimited campaign contributions set the agenda and over the past two years this vision is now nearing it’s conclusion. So that with Republicans in control of Congress and the White House without any checks or balances whatsoever, they’ve provided another 1.5 trillion dollars in tax cuts to people like me who I promise don’t need it and don’t even pretend to pay for them. It’s supposed to be party of fiscal conservatism. Suddenly deficits do not matter even though just two years ago. When the deficit was lower they said I couldn’t afford to help working families or seniors on Medicare because the deficit was an existential crisis. What changed? What changed? They’re subsidizing corporate polluters with taxpayer dollars allowing dishonest lenders to take advantage of veterans and students and consumers again.


Rachael Maddow interviews Hillary Clinton about Trump and the new chapters of her book What Happened.

New and Improved Book Release

One year ago Hillary Clinton published this book which is simply titled What Happened? It’s her perspective on what happened in the 2016 election it contains what is still one of the most comprehensive timelines of what happened to the Democratic Party what happened to her campaign. When it came to the Russian attack on the 2016 election, I mean there’s lots of other things in this book, but that like a 50 page summary starts on page 325. It’s very very readable. As I said, I think it’s one of the best summaries anybody’s done anywhere in terms of what happened with the Russian attack. It is highly readable, highly recommended. This came out last year now as of tonight there’s this version of the book as well and this version of the book has a big new caboose.

 



There is actually only one real check on bad policy and abuses of power and that’s you you and your vote. Americans will always have disagreements on policy. This is a big country. It is a raucous country. People have different points of view. I happen to be a Democrat. I support Democratic candidates. I believe our policies are better and that we have a bigger, bolder vision of opportunity and equality and justice and inclusive democracy. We know there are a lot of jobs young people aren’t getting a chance to occupy, or aren’t getting paid enough, or aren’t getting benefits like insurance. It’s harder for young people to save for a rainy day let alone retirement. So Democrats aren’t just running on good old ideas like a higher minimum wage.

New Good Democrats Will Bring Good Policies

They’re running on good new ideas like Medicare for all, giving workers seats on corporate boards, reversing the most egregious corporate tax cuts, to make sure college students graduate debt-free. We know that people are tired of toxic corruption, and that democracy depends on transparency and accountability. So Democrats aren’t just running on good old ideas like requiring presidential candidates to release their tax returns and barring lobbyists for making campaign contributions, but on good new ideas like barring lobbyists from getting paid by foreign governments. We know that climate change isn’t just coming, it is here. So Democrats aren’t just running on good old ideas like increasing gas mileage in our cars. Which I did and which Republicans are trying to reverse. Good new ideas like putting a price on carbon pollution. We know that in a smaller more connected world we can’t just put technology back in a box. We can’t just put walls up all around America.

Humpty Trumpty Sat On  Wall…

Walls don’t keep out threats like terrorism or disease and that’s why we propose leading our alliances and helping other countries develop and pushing back against tyrants and Democrats talk about reforming our immigration system so yes it is orderly and it is fair and it is legal but it continues to welcome strivers and dreamers from all around the world that’s that’s why I’m a Democrat that’s a set of ideas that I believe in but I am here to tell you that even if you don’t agree with me or Democrats on policy even if you believe in more libertarian economic theories, even if you are an evangelical and our position on certain social issues is a bridge too far, even if you you think my assessment of immigration is mistaken and the Democrats aren’t serious enough about immigration enforcement, I’m here to tell you that you should still be concerned with our current course and should still want to see a restoration of honesty and decency and lawfulness in our government.

Political Deja Vu All Over Again

History shows the power of fear. The closer that we get to election day, the more those invested in the politics of fear and division will work to do anything to hang on to their recent gains. Fortunately, I am hopeful because out of this political darkness I am seeing a Great Awakening of citizenship all across the country I cannot tell you how encouraged I’ve been by watching so many people get involved for the first time for the first time in a long time they’re marching and they’re organizing and they’re registering people to vote and they’re running for office themselves look at this crop of Democratic candidates running for Congress and running for governor running for the state legislature running for District Attorney running for school board it is a movement of citizens who happened to be younger and more diverse and more female than ever before and that’s really useful.

The Blue Wave is Female

We need more women in charge but we’ve got first time candidates. We’ve got veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. Record numbers of women. Americans who’ve previously maybe didn’t have an interest in politics as a career, but but laced up their shoes and rolled up their sleeves and grab a clipboard because they too believe these times are different. This moment’s too important to sit out, and if you listen to what these candidates are talking about in individual races across the country you’ll find they’re not just running against something they are running for something. To run, to expand opportunity, and they’re running to restore the honor and compassion that should be the essence of public service. Speaking as a Democrat, that’s when the Democratic Party has always made the biggest difference in the lives of the American people. When we led with conviction and principled and bold new ideas. The antidote to a government controlled by a powerful few. A government that divides is a government by the organized energized inclusive many that’s what this moment’s about. That has to be the answer.

Learn How The Traitors Did It – Own It Now!

Don’t Sit This election Day Out

You cannot sit back and wait for a savior. You can’t opt out because you don’t feel sufficiently inspired by this or that particular candidate. This is not a rock concert, this is not Coachella. We don’t need a messiah all we need are decent, honest, hard-working people who are accountable and who have America’s best interests at heart. That they’ll step up and they’ll join our government and they will make things better if they have support. One election will not fix everything that needs to be fixed, but it will be a start and you have to start it. What’s going to fix our democracy is you people ask me what are you going to do for the election. Now the question is, what are you going to do? You’re the antidote. Your participation and your spirit and your determination, not just in this election but in every subsequent election, and in the days between elections.

Tell Us Why Barack?

Because in the end, the threat to our democracy doesn’t just come from Donald Trump, or the current batch of Republicans in Congress, or the Koch brothers and their lobbyists, or too much compromise from Democrats, or Russian hacking. The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference. The biggest threat to our democracy is cynicism. Cynicism led too many people to turn away from politics and stay home on Election Day. To all the young people who are here today, there are now more eligible voters in your generation than in any other. Which means your generation now has more power than anybody does to change things if you want. If you can make sure America gets out of its current funk. If you actually care about it, you have the power to make sure we see is a brighter future. But to exercise that clout to it to exercise that power. You have to show up.

1 Out of 5 Millennials Voted in the last Congressional Election!!!

In the last midterms election in 2014. Fewer than one in five young people voted. One in five, not two and five. Is it any wonder this Congress doesn’t reflect your values and your priorities. Surprised by that? This whole project of self-government only works if everybody’s doing their part. Don’t tell me your vote doesn’t matter. I’ve won States in the Presidential Election because of 5, 10, 20, votes per precinct and if you thought elections don’t matter, I hope these last two years have corrected that impression. So if you don’t like what’s going on right now, and you shouldn’t, do not complain. Don’t hashtag. Don’t get anxious. Don’t retreat. Don’t binge on whatever it is you’re binging on. Don’t lose yourself in ironic detachment. Don’t put your head in the sand.

Don’t boo, VOTE!

If you’re tired of politicians who offer nothing but thoughts and prayers after a mass shooting, you’ve got to do what the Parkland kids are doing. Some of them aren’t even eligible to vote yet they’re out there working to change minds and registering people, and they’re not giving up until we have a Congress that sees your lives as more important than a campaign check from the NRA. You’ve got a vote.

Make Your Ballot A Gun In The face Of The Republican’t Party

If you support the me too movement you’re outraged by stories of sexual harassment and assault inspired by the women who shared them you’ve got to do more than retweet a hashtag you’ve got to vote. Part of the reason women are more vulnerable in the workplace is because not enough women are bosses in the workplace. Which is why we need to strengthen and enforce laws that protect woman in the workplace, not just from harassment, but from discrimination in hiring and promotion and not getting paid the same amount for doing the same work. That requires laws get passed by legislators you’ve got elected when you vote. You’ve got the power to make it easier to afford college and harder to shoot up a school. When you vote, you’ve got the power to make sure a family keeps its health insurance, you could save somebody’s life. When you vote, you’ve got the power to make sure white nationalists don’t feel emboldened to march with their hoods off in the middle of the day.

What Is A Bit Of Your Time Worth? Your Right To Vote!

30 minutes. Just 30 minutes of your time. Is democracy worth what we have been through? Much darker times than these and somehow each generation of Americans carried us through to the other side. Not by sitting around and waiting for something to happen, not by leaving it to others to do something, but by leading that movement for change themselves. If you do that, if you get involved and you get engaged, and you knock on some doors and you talk with your friends and you argue with your family members and you change some minds and you vote, something powerful happens. Change happens. Hope happens, not perfection, not every bit of cruelty and sadness and poverty and disease suddenly stricken from the Earth.

Be In It For The Long Haul Ahead

There will still be problems, but with each new candidate that surprises you with a victory, that you supported us, a spark of hope happens. With each new law that helps a kid read, or helps a homeless family find shelter, or helps a veteran get the support he or she has earned, each time that happens hope happens. With each new step we take in the direction of fairness, and justice, and equality, and opportunity, hope spreads and that can be the legacy of your generation. You can be the generation that, at a critical moment, stood up and reminded us just how precious this experiment in democracy really is. Just how powerful it can be when we fight for it. When we believe in it. I believe in you. I believe you will help lead us in the right direction and I will be right there with you every step of the way.

Thank You Illinois. God bless you.

God bless this country you love.

Thank you.
