A mother's letter, saying, "Don't forget to be a good boy," when she wrote to her son about his vote on suffrage, changed history. 24-year old Harry Burn's courage in the face of dirty political tricks ratified the 19th amendment. #Suffrage100 #LetHerSpeak pic.twitter.com/QWNqB7nmjN— Jo Jorgensen (@Jorgensen4POTUS) August 18, 2020
"Because it can be of no benefit commensurate with the additional expense involved."— Jo Jorgensen (@Jorgensen4POTUS) August 18, 2020
"Because it is unwise to risk the good we already have for the evil which may occur."

On this anniversary of #suffrage100, when I see women AND men being duped into voting against their own self-interest, I look to the 24-year old Harry Burns of today to "be good" and vote FOR the rational freedom they can have if they for me and #VoteLibertarian.— Jo Jorgensen (@Jorgensen4POTUS) August 18, 2020
