Examples of representatives in a Sentence

  1. Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen:

    From where I stand, I'm deeply disappointed that the House leadership would proceed in that way in something that is so obviously beneath the dignity of the offices they hold. It's really a new low for the current House of Representatives, we're talking about a matter, the census, in which the Supreme Court has already ruled, and we have moved on. So, the House has not identified some compelling legislative need for this. To the contrary this makes no sense at all.

  2. Chief Justice John Roberts:

    It is not about whether, in my judgment, the institution of marriage should be changed to include same-sex couples, it is instead about whether, in our democratic republic, that decision should rest with the people acting through their elected representatives, or with five lawyers who happen to hold commissions authorizing them to resolve legal disputes under the law.

  3. John Hospers:

    By far the most numerous and most flagrant violations of personal liberty and individual rights are performed by governments. The major crimes throughout history, the ones executed on the largest scale, have been committed not by individuals or bands of individuals but by governments, as a deliberate policy of those governments, that is, by the official representatives of governments, acting in their official capacity.

  4. Islam Karimov:

    Various elements among the representatives of Islamic State are already slipping into Afghanistan from Iraq and Syria. All this requires the adoption of appropriate preventative measures, the creeping expansion of militant extremism and religious radicalism, not only on the territory of the governments of Central Asia but also abroad, is most seriously concerning.

  5. Milorad Dodik:

    We see that this is selective justice, that it's not the justice for all parties, that it is directed against one people and its representatives.
