Why Am I a Democrat?


Rachael Drake

I'm a Democrat because I believe everyone deserves a fair shot at the American dream. I believe that we are land of immigrants and no matter where or when you came you deserve the protections of our Constitution. And most importantly, as a woman I believe in equality, the right to choose, and continuing the fight for affordable healthcare

Frank Baird

I am a democrat for several reasons. First being the fact that the Democratic Party is generally on the same side as science. It is paramount for our species’ evolution that we keep investing and supporting science because it ultimately holds the key for our survival. Second, the Democrats (liberals) have fought since the inception of our country to expand liberty and personal freedom to all, from the revolution, the labor movement in the early 1900s,  the civil rights movement in the 1960s and 70s, to finally allowing gay people to marry in this past decade. Liberals have always been on the right side of history, and I believe this trend has and will continue. Finally, the Democrats simply have more ideas than the conservative opposition. The conservatives fight for the status quo, they fight for nostalgia of the days in which Americans had less freedom. This is opposed to the Democrats in that we have a broad range of ideas, from UBI, to Medicare for all, to CRJ reform. We are the party of change. 

June Dineen

I’m a lifelong Democrat, first because my parents were Democrats then because I recognized that government is meant to serve ALL of the people.

Elicia Elfers

I'm a Democrat because it's in my blood.  But more importantly, I'm a proud Kentucky Democrat because the Democratic Party continues to fight for what's right for the people!  The issues that are most important to me - environmental justice, gender equality, gun reform and student loan debt forgiveness - are at the forefront of the Democratic Platform.  Looking back through history, Democrats were responsible for the most progressive programs, initiatives and institutions that have helped to build the country we have today.  These include:  women's suffrage, the Voting Rights Act, the Civil Rights Act, public education, marriage equality, Peace Corps, the Space Program, social security, medicare/medicaid, public education, HUDD, FDIC and the list goes on and on...

So I think the better question is "why aren't you a democrat?"
