So it’s up to us to stay engaged and informed, to keep speaking out and marching on. We’ve got to vote in even greater numbers in the upcoming Senate runoffs in Georgia—and every state and local election going forward.
@MichelleObama Is time to draw a red line in the sand
@Al30506955 @MichelleObama Why is it so ”terrifying” that we reach for all the power that's possible to attain!? Isn't that the fundament of ”Dream Big,””Go for the Gusto,” ”Eye on the Prize,” and such?
@MichelleObama People should think VERY hard about those upcoming votes. Democrats already planned on stacking the SCOTUS and proposed making D.C. an independent state in an effort to expand their power. As an independent the thought of 1 party reaching for so much power is terrifying.
My warmest congratulations again to Joe and Jill, Kamala and Doug—and each of you who stepped up when your country needed you.
We’ve got to promise each other that our focus in this election won’t be an anomaly, but the rule. That’s how we can not only feel this way right now, but in the months and years ahead. It’s the only way we’ll build a nation worthy of our children.
We see now the reality that we can’t take even the tiniest part of our democracy for granted. Every single vote must count — and every single one of us must vote. And as a country, we should be making it easier, not harder to cast a ballot.
Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division. We’ve got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us.
And after we celebrate — and we should all take a moment to exhale after everything we’ve been through — let’s remember that this is just a beginning. It’s a first step. Voting in one election isn’t a magic wand, and neither is winning one.
But we’ve also got to recognize that the path to progress will always be uphill. We’ll always have to scrape and crawl up toward that mountaintop. And two years from now, four years from now, there will once again be no margin for error.
Thank you to all of you who poured every ounce of your hope and determination into this democracy over these past four years, registering voters, getting them to the polls, keeping folks informed. More votes were cast in this election than ever before. It’s because of you.
