I have some concerns about people in congress running for president. I am concerned that it is hard to legislate and campaign at the same time. In fact, I think it is impossible to do both and serve them equally at the same time. I assume that both suffer some, and it is what it is.
I am open to listen to anyone running for president. I don’t have my mind made up and I ma tied to no one. I examine their words, actions, posts and anything I can get my hands on. I want to make informed decisions.
I listened to her entire speech. I then printed out a transcript so I could be accurate and clarify what I thought I heard.
Let’s talk about the general feel of her speech. The introduction talked about her roots and where she came from. (She left out that she has lived in Canada for quite some time.) She spoke about her job as an attorney and prosecutor in California. Then her speech became a little more interesting.
“I believe and on that point, I believed then as I do now, no one should be left to fight alone because you see in our system of justice, we believe that a harm against any one of us is a harm against all of us. That is why when a case is filed, it doesn’t read the name of the victim. It reads the people, and this is a point I have often explained to console and counsel survivors of crime. People who faced great harm often at the hands of someone they trust. Being a relative or a bank or a big corporation, I would remind them, you are not invisible. We all stand together because that is the power of the people and my whole life, I’ve only had one client. The people! And fighting for the people, fighting on behalf of survivors of sexual assault, a fight not just against predators, but a fight against silence and stigma.”
To be continue….
