That ░░░░░░░░ not what this country ░░░░░░░░ supposed to be about ░░░░░░░░ on Can t we ░░░░░░░░ just admit that That ░░░░░░░░ not who we should ░░░░░░░░ We aspire to live ░░░░░░░░ to the words that ░░░░░░░░ men are created equal ░░░░░░░░ by their Creator with ░░░░░░░░ rights to life liberty ░░░░░░░░ the pursuit of happiness ░░░░░░░░ this country was founded ░░░░░░░░ people fought to expand ░░░░░░░░ rights to cover more ░░░░░░░░ people of color women ░░░░░░░░ Americans But along with ░░░░░░░░ rights every one of ░░░░░░░░ also has a responsibility ░░░░░░░░ now okay I hope ░░░░░░░░ is

to me I have ░░░░░░░░ be honest because too ░░░░░░░░ of you have been ░░░░░░░░ s say unmotivated about ░░░░░░░░ in the past Just ░░░░░░░░ percent of citizens under ░░░░░░░░ voted in 2014 But ░░░░░░░░ is some good news ░░░░░░░░ may be turning things ░░░░░░░░ this year A Harvard ░░░░░░░░ found that 40 percent ░░░░░░░░ people under 30 say ░░░░░░░░ ll definitely vote in ░░░░░░░░ midterms It should be ░░░░░░░░ but 40 percent is ░░░░░░░░ than 17 percent Of ░░░░░░░░ saying that you ll ░░░░░░░░ and actually voting that ░░░░░░░░ two different things So ░░░░░░░░ you re tempted to ░░░░░░░░ going to the polls ░░░░░░░░ want you to imagine ░░░░░░░░ right Imagine how you ░░░░░░░░ feel on Wednesday morning ░░░░░░░░ the results aren t ░░░░░░░░ you hoped for Imagine ░░░░░░░░ you ll feel when ░░░░░░░░ s too late because ░░░░░░░░ then it will be ░░░░░░░░ late Lots to talk ░░░░░░░░ now with Mark McKinnon ░░░░░░░░ Cobb and Max Boot ░░░░░░░░ re going to dig ░░░░░░░░ it next.
