90 Years Ago

Today is the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constution.

On August 18th, 1920 Tennessee became the 36th state to ratify the amendment — that’s 132 years after the founding of our republic; but in plenty of time for women to flex their muscle in the Presidential Election of 1920 — and without all the devices used to prevent the full force of the 15th Amendment when it was ratified in 1869.

We celebrate the ratification on the 26th of August, since that was the day then Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby certified the amendment’s ratification.

Divorcing Religious Belief

You can not divorce religious belief and public service. I’ve never detected any conflict between God’s will and my political duty. If you violate one, you violate the other.

Do what you have to do
