Why I’m a Democrat

Bionca Stewart

“I’m a Democrat because I think the Democratic Party holds the policies of the future. The future of America—and the entire world—involves sustainable technology, upgrades in our infrastructure, and a completely functioning economy (not an economy that works only for some). The Democratic Party also has morals on their platform as well, and as a person who has faith I believe that having a moral conscience should not be debatable when making or implementing decisions. This is why I am a Democrat because it’s a party of values and policies meant for a greater future.” -Bionca Stewart

“Why am I a Democrat? It’s pretty darned simple: I believe in social and economic equality. Clean air and water, cage-free children and gun control are right up there too.”  -Beth Johnson

“I have always been a Democrat because I believe a responsive government is part of the solution—not the problem—to many of the challenges we face today. I am a Democrat because climate change is real. I am a Democrat because a living wage and affordable healthcare are not a dream but our future. Lastly and most importantly I will always be a Democrat because we fight to ever expand equality, not shrink it.” –Loren A. Kimeldorf

Randy Wolbert

“Booker T. Washington said, ‘There are two ways of exerting one’s strength: one is pushing down, the other is pulling up’  I am a Democrat because we are the party of pulling up.  Democrats stand up for: the rights of all; health care for all; education for all; and justice for all.  Time to listen to our better angels and take our country back by voting Democratic.” —Randy Wolbert

“I’m a Democrat because I believe in social justice and political reform. I believe our country has lost sight as to what being a human being is all about. We must care for one another and be more empathetic and accepting when it comes to those who are different from ourselves. Being a Democrat means standing up for those who do not have a voice. By being a member of the Democratic Party I feel that I am contributing to society in a positive manner by making the world a more accepting and truly beautiful place, where we can all coexist as one species with the goal of living a happy and successful life.” –Elliana Kisiel

Pam Gilchrist

“I am a Democrat because I still want to believe in the American Dream. I want to believe that we can obtain equality for all people despite race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. I want our country to progress in the areas of climate change and education. We need to secure better, less expensive healthcare. The Democratic Party strives to lift up all Americans, not just a privileged few.” –Pam Gilchrist

One thought on “Why I’m a Democrat

  1. I’m a Democrat because my parents taught me to care about people other than myself, and because I can understand concepts longer than a bumper sticker slogan.
