DC attorney with Guam ties comments on Obama's speech

Guam - Former Guam resident and founder of the We the People project, Attorney Neil Weare comments on the president's address, specifically Obama's reference that "the right to vote is sacred, that is being denied to too many".   Weare thanked the president for standing up for the right to vote but he says the question is whether this includes the nearly five million US citizens who are denied full enjoyment of the right to vote simply because they live in a territory or in the District of Columbia.  We the People project is a non-profit organization that fights for the day residents of US territories and DC are treated as full and equal members.  The group is working on a new federal voting rights lawsuit that makes the case that the right to vote should not depend on where you live. You are encouraged to learn more about the effort by visiting representguam.com.
