Days in the life of Ruth Bader Ginsberg




Perhaps everyone has already seen "RBG."  If not, your public library likely has a copy of the DVD.  I had to wait in line for my copy and the wait was well worth my time.

On October 9, 2018, Ruth Bader Ginsberg was one of two dissenting voices on the Supreme Court, taking a positive stand for the rights of Native American voters in North Dakota.



Quote below from this article :

Regardless of the result of this year’s election, North Dakota voter suppression has backfired: Thousands of newly credentialed Native American voters have shifted the electoral math in North Dakota.
And they are angry. Alexis Davis, 19, chairwoman of the Turtle Mountain Youth Council, told the AP, “It’s like, oh you want to make this harder for me? Oh, you want to take away my rights? It’s like, no, now I’m going to fight that, and I’m going to be more resilient, and I’m going to make sure that I’m going to go vote.”

I love Ruth, what a warrior woman. I sense from RBG she wasn't a particularly warm and fuzzy mother, but she is mother to us all, in terms of protecting our rights. And I am so glad Native Americans are fighting for their rights. It's exhilarating. I hope it backfires monumentally.

I hope voter suppression backfires everywhere. What they did to the tribes was so evil, I hope it has created some life long activists.
