"What happened to the Republican Party?
Its central organizing principle in foreign policy was the fight against Communism & now they're cozying up to the former head of the KGB."

"Better is good.
Do not let people tell you the fight’s not worth it because you won’t get everything that you want...
Better’s always worth fighting for."
"As a fellow citizen.
Not as an ex-president.
But as a fellow citizen I’m here to deliver a simple message, you need to vote because our democracy depends on it."

"1 in 5 young Americans voting in the midterms is NOT enough."

“You cannot sit back and wait for a savior.
You can't opt out because you don't feel sufficiently inspired by this or that particular candidate.
This is not a rock concert.
This is not Coachella.
We don't need a messiah."

“How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad?”

This is 1 of those pivotal moments when every 1 of us, as citizens of the United States, need to determine just who it is that we are.
Just what it is that we stand for.
As a fellow citizen, not as ex-president, I deliver a simple message to students at University of Illinois.
You need to vote cause our democracy depends on it.
The biggest threat to our democracy doesn't come from any 1 person.
The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference.
The biggest threat to our democracy is cynicism, a cynicism that’s led too many people to turn away from politics, to stay home on Election Day.

The antidote to government by the powerful few is democracy by the organized many.
If you get involved, engaged, knock on some doors, talk with your friends, argue with your family members, change some minds, vote, then something powerful happens.

Change happens. Hope happens.

With each new candidate that surprises you with a victory, a spark of hope happens.
With each new law that helps a kid read, a poor family find shelter, a vet get the support he/she has earned, hope happens.
With each new step we take in the direction of fairness, justice, equality, opportunity, hope spreads.

I believe that can be the legacy of your generation.
You can be the generation that stood up & reminded us just how precious democracy is, just how powerful it can be when we fight for it.

I believe you will.

Because I believe in you.

And I’ll be right there alongside you, every step of the way.
