DC Voting Rights

Taxation without representation. You see it on bumper stickers and on every DC license plate. It was the battle cry of our Founding Fathers in overthrowing the oppression of unjust British rule. Yet it is just as relevant a problem today in the District of Columbia, for the members of our own community here at Georgetown, as it was for the rebellious colonists two centuries ago. Over the last three years, thousands of Americans have died fighting so that Iraqi citizens can achieve the right to vote. Citizens of all states as well as the District of Columbia have risked their lives in support of democracy at home and abroad. Bush
