Why I am a Democrat

I am a Democrat because, lacking a Labor Party, working people need a voice. Working people have built this Country and working people deserve their fair share of the fruit of their labor. The very group that economically supports the Rich and the Poor is shrinking, thus the economic burden is being carried by fewer and fewer and it is becoming heavier and heavier. There needs to be a Revolution of Thinking in this Country before any real change can take place. Working People are being lied to and they need to stand up and say, "I am worth more than the lipservice paid by Republicans." I believe that the Democratic Party, the party of the people, also needs to embrace this thinking and realize that the vast majority of working people are honest and hardworking and they deserve honest, ethical and effective representation in exchange for their labor.

I believe that jobs that pay a living wage is the biggest Family Value that the Democratic Party can work for. We need jobs that pay a living wage so that parents are not forced to work multiple jobs just to feed, house and clothe their families. We need to keep jobs in this country and promote the growth of new industries here at home - industries that promote solutions to the other problems we face - renewable energy industries, healthy food industries, healthy water industries, non-polluting businesses that create goods to sell around the world.

Our ancestors built the Greatest Nation of the modern era. There is no reason we should now be debtor slaves to China. We CAN DO BETTER! We DESERVE BETTER. Our children DESERVE BETTER.

Because I see a vsion of a World That Works For Everyone (not just the rich and the dishonest) I am a Democrat. Proudly!
