The video highlights the efforts made by Americans over the years to ensure our Democracy continues to grow and remains strong by fighting, sometimes with their lives, to ensure our continued right to vote.
The Really American Super PAC has released a new video titled, “Vote For Democracy.” In the video, events from our past captured on film, highlight the struggles American citizens have faced in securing their rights to vote.
The words of civil rights icon John Lewis, former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Senator Bernie Sanders, remind us of the importance voting has for sustaining and strengthening our Democracy.
As John Lewis reminds us, “many people were jailed, beaten, and some were even killed for trying to register to vote.” While Obama adds, “What greater form of patriotism is there than the belief that America is not yet finished. That each successive generation can look upon our imperfections and decided that it is in our power to remake this nation to more closely align with our highest ideals.”
In the video, Donald Trump surrounds himself with armed guards and Americans are teargassed during peaceful protests while the voice of Bernie Sanders proclaims, “If Donald Trump is re-elected all the progress we have made will be in jeopardy.”
John Lewis reminds us, “We must not step backward toward another dark period in our history. Your vote is precious, almost sacred, it is the most powerful non-violent tool we have to create a more perfect union.”
The video ends as President Obama proclaims, “Do not let them take away your power. Do not let them take away your Democracy.”
