Why I'm A Democrat

            Sounds correct doesn't it?  Democrat... democracy!

            I believe in fairness and opportunities for the common working people and the those who are or were unable to obtain wealth
            enjoyed by a priviledged few.  The Democratic Party is America's party.  The Democratic Party has its roots with the
            common man and has fought for and won battles in protecting children and families.  The Democratic Party supported and
            fought for protection of our food.  The Democratic Party fought for and won the right for women to vote. The Democratic
            Party initiated, fought for and won minimum wage laws.  The Democratic Party fought for and won Social Security for all
            Americans.  The Democratic Party iniated, fought for, and won Medicare for all Americans.  The list goes on and on.

             I'm a Democrat because I care about other people and their right to a decent life and to have shelter.  I care about this
             country and its long-term well-being.  I care about animals, trees, and the environment.  I know this is the only planet we
             have and we must take care of it.  It's a sin to consider "the bottom line" and profit over future generations' living space.

THE BUSINESS OF AMERICA IS BUSINESS

 I           If it helps big business, it's Republican!  Yes America needs big business but not at the expense of our air, water, and
            quality of life. At every turn, the Republican Party has fought against labor, fought against pro-environmental legislation
            fought against family issues such as paid leave and medical coverage.  We had a Republican America at the turn of the
            20th century.  We also had a meat industry that poisoned America, dangerous and deplorable working conditions with
            no one responsible.  Workers were in "company towns" with no way out, poor wages, and purchases were made at the
            "company store" with prices that guaranteed you would always owe and never save.  Children worked in dangerous jobs
            at very early ages for next to nothing.  Why?  To support the family or themselves while lining the pockets of some
            robber baron with a few extra dollars.  Sure this was an age of progress but did it have to create itself on the backs of the
            poor?

BE A REPUBLICAN IF YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHY YOU ARE ONE

            Certainly be a Republican if you know why you are one - if you have good reasons.  I don't mind if you're Republican as
            as you have a valid reason.  I will swear that most I've met have no good idea why they are Republicans.  I've met too
            many that were Republican because their parents were Republicans.  Or they have some strange idea that it's a more
            moral party affiliation and it supports Christian ideals.  What's worse are those who believe the Republican Party is
            more American than the Democratic Party.  This scares me because I don't think that my Democratic Party is more
            patriotic.  They're are even poor Republicans which makes no sense at all since Republicans do not support any
            measures to help the poor or disadvantaged.  This would run contrary to Republican thinking.

PARTY OF PERSONAL FREEDOM

 
ABORTION RIGHTS
            Republicans, when considering themselves the party of personal freedom should consider this.  On the subject of abortion,
            why do Republicans feel that the government should be involved?  Is that the government's business?  Moreover, why
            aren't you anti-abortionists minding your own business?  Seems like intrusion and infringement of someone's rights. Now
            if you don't like abortions, don't get one!  I may or may not agree with the abortion issue but I don't feel I have the right to
            tell someone else what to do.  Let someone come into your home and not like your color scheme or what's for dinner and
            prevent you from cooking it. You'd  have a heart attack.  Not all abortions are needed because someone made a mistake.
           There are other reasons -- and guess what?!  It's none of your business!
