Obama’s speech in North Carolina is totally giving us chills, but in a good way
Somehow, this election is finally nearing its end. But there is still work to be done! And President Obama just visited North Carolina to campaign for Hillary Clinton, and, wow — he had so many amazing things to say. During his visit to North Carolina, Obama talked a Trump presidency and urged not just Democrats, but everyone, to really pay attention this election season. And if there’s one person whose advice we’ll definitely take into consideration this election, it’s Barack Obama.
See the speech for yourself!
All in all, it was an empowering and SUPER moving speech.
"We don't win this election, potentially, if we don't win North Carolina."
Like, whoa. This was a big deal type of speech.
"If you disrespect women before you are elected president, you will disrespect women when you're in office. Imagine what you'll do when you actually have the power to violate the Constitution along those lines?"
"I hate to put a little pressure on you, but the fate of the republic rests on your shoulders. The fate of the world is teetering."
On one hand, yeah, it’s a lot of pressure. But, hearing that, we feel more empowered than ever. Like, yes, we can do something to change the state of our country.
It may not change everything, and there are so many other ways (beyond voting!) that we can continue to make a difference. But we have a vote, so if we can, why not use it?!
