I listened to several of Barack Obama's speeches lately and he said some something like "power will not concede" and we can't let up and we have to continue to struggle. I'm sure he's making a reference to a quote from Frederick Douglas that has been an inspiration to me my whole working life at a union organizer. "... Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will..."
Here's more of the quote from Frederick Douglas "... "Let me give you a word of the philosophy of reform. The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims, have been born of earnest struggle. The conflict has been exciting, agitating, all-absorbing, and for the time being, putting all other tumults to silence. It must do this or it does nothing. If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters."
"This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will..."
In other words - you get nothing without a fight. Let fight on and remember that after Obama wins the fight won't be over.
