Bernie Sanders’ speech: This is an election between Donald Trump and democracy. And democracy must win.
“It is absolutely imperative that we have, by far, the largest voter turnout in American history and that people vote as early as possible. As someone who is strongly supporting Joe Biden, let’s be clear: a landslide victory for Joe Biden will make it virtually impossible for Trump to deny the results and is our best means for defending democracy.”
The ORMA Community mourns the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
We adopt this statement of Presidential candidate Joe Biden as reflecting our sentiment:
“Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood for all of us. She fought for all of us…. (S)he persisted through every challenge that an unequal system placed in her way to change the laws of our land and lead the legal charge to advance equal rights for women... she was consistently and reliably the voice that pierced to the heart of every issue, protected the constitutional rights of every American, and never failed in the fierce and unflinching defense of liberty and freedom. Her opinions, and her dissents, will continue to shape the basis of our law for future generations…
In the coming days, we should be focused on the loss of Justice Ginsburg and her enduring legacy. But just so there is no doubt, let me be clear: The voters should pick a President, and that President should select a successor to Justice Ginsburg. This was the position that the Republican Senate took in 2016, when there were nearly nine months before the election. That is the position the United States Senate must take now, when the election is less than two months away. We are talking about the Constitution and the Supreme Court. That institution should not be subject to politics.”

“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” – Ruth Bader Ginsburg
