Why I Am A Democrat – by Steve Sheffey

  • We are Democrats because we think it is our job to care about the 47%.
  • We are Democrats because we believe the answer to the question “Am I my brother’s keeper?” is YES.
  •  We are Democrats because we believe that women do and should have the right to control their bodies and their health decisions.
  •  We are Democrats because we believe that discrimination based on who you are and who you love should be illegal.
  •  We are Democrats because we believe that all Americans deserve decent food, shelter, education, and health care.
  •  We are Democrats because we believe that all Americans should pay their fair share of taxes.
  •  We are Democrats because we support Israel.
  •  We are Democrats because we believe that a society is judged on how it cares for the least fortunate, not on how well it protects the most wealthy.
  •  We are Democrats because we believe that the Second Amendment to the Constitution does not prohibit reasonable gun control.
  •  We are Democrats because we believe that government should actively protect our environment and yes, we believe that climate change is real and is affected by our activities.
  •  Don’t let anyone tell you that party labels don’t matter. There is a big difference between Democrats and Republicans at all levels of government.
  •  We just turned the clock back for the end of Daylight Saving Time. Don’t turn the clock back on our country on Tuesday.
  • We need to keep moving forward. Vote Democratic. Vote for all the Democrats on the ballot.
  • Only you can move our country forward.
