Thanks to State Representative David Gomberg for reminding us that Oregon's legislators still pass most bills with both Democrats and Republicans. Unfortunately, Republican senators continue to defy the will of the people as some of those who walked out of the session for six weeks plan to run for office again, despite the measure passed by voters prohibiting that.

CELEBRATE INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS
"On July 9, 1868, Americans changed the U.S. Constitution for the fourteenth time, adapting our foundational document to construct a new nation without systematic Black enslavement. ....The Fourteenth Amendment provides that “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
"....And so the Fourteenth Amendment gave the federal government the power to protect individuals even if their state legislatures had passed discriminatory laws.
"The principles behind the Fourteenth Amendment were behind the 1870 creation of the Department of Justice, whose first job was to bring down the Ku Klux Klan terrorists in the South." -- from Heather Cox Richardson, Letters from an American, July 8, 2023
"The Americans will always do the right thing after trying all other alternatives." -- Winston Churchill
