Go-Going for Voting Rights

Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton is set to speak before the Democratic Party Convention tonight. But before she does, DC Vote's music video, "Demand the Vote," will get its own 60 seconds of fame at Denver's Pepsi Center at 5:15 p.m. EST.

But you can watch it here.

Mayor Adrian Fenty, Michelle Rhee and others from DC are now at the Democratic National Convention and they are joining in on the chorus for the need for change.

On the opening day of the Democratic National Convention, we heard speeches from Caroline Kennedy, Ted Kennedy, Michelle Obama and while it all sounded nice, these people speak of change just like our local leaders are doing, but aren’t these the same people who have been in government for years on the federal, state and local levels and did not bring change but more of the status-quo, who are millionaires, who live in a house you nor I could ever afford, have their kids in the best schools, never have to worry about paying bills, who commit crimes and use their clout to have it all swept under the rug? Yes these are the same con artists who created the problems they now want to change!

Fenty and Rhee want to change you for somebody else with all their union busting activities interpose their will on all without feedback from voters and treat you like little children in a Father Knows Best setting.

Let's not be fooled by all the sweet talk as we are listening to the HAVES, we are still the HAVE NOTS and can’t tell who the worse oppressors are; the far left or the far right!
