A democrat is a person who likes to take from the "rich" and "help" the poor. This is the cause for America's debt. All they do is appeal to the general public (poor minorities) by make vague promises that they can't keep. They also belive that they way to fix any problem is to throw taxpayer (your) money at it.
The cause for America's problems are democrats.

democratic principles are generally based on equality, toleration, and justice (unlike the self-serving, selfish policies of the republican party)

for example:

1)abortions are sometimes necessary to protect the health and life of a woman, especially in cases of rape, incest and danger to the mother. republicans prefer to criminalize abortion. democrats do not support abortion, they support the CHOICE to have an abortion. no mother would make that choice unless she absolutely had to.

2)citizens born into low income families and neighborhoods are born in a difficult situation that is hard to escape and should be assisted by the government through social welfare programs so they can take steps to escape poverty and prevent the cycle from recurring. this would solve many inner city problems such as gang violence and drug abuse. welfare is not a handout, it is a program, and without it many americans would have nothing.

3)there is no need for every american citizen to own a gun. this amendment in the constitution was referring to a time of war when the battles were being fought in the home country. putting guns in the hands of civilians is putting guns in the hands of criminals - because criminals are civilians after all. also, thousands of accidental deaths occur every year as a result of keeping a gun in the home and the possession of a gun is dangerous and easily abused.

4) taxes are necessary to build roads, fund schools and fund other social programs that are necessary for a healthy and succesful society. many americans are allergic to the idea of "raising taxes" but democrats believe that higher taxes are better than low taxes and underfunded schools. after all, all taxes we pay contribute to the quality of the society that we ourselves live in.

5) capital punishment is not justice, it is murder. there is no "eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth" because humans have no right to play God and decide whether another human deserves to live or die. a life of imprisonment is no slap on the wrist and is the closest to justice that a civilized society can come. we are the only non-third-world country where capital punishment is still legal and through mistakes made in the justice system, several innocent or partially innocent people have been killed.

7) the "American way" is not the only way. this country is the bully on the global playground and democrats believe that attentions should be more focused on the problems at home, such as the economy. most other countries either despise the USA or make fun of it and repeatedly using words such as "liberty" and "freedom" (for example "freedom fries") is pure propoganda.
democrat and proud of it

a person who adheres to the democratic party, the more liberal of the two dominating political forces in America. while their policies often have good intentions, they place faith in government, otherwise known as the most inefficient organization known to man. For a democrat, government programs are the solution to just about any social problem, especially those created or aggravated by government programs or restrictions (see health care). To pay for said programs, they would take as much money as they can from rich people. If in congress, they avoid taxes to prevent this from affecting them too much. they also believe that the ideal way to create jobs is to take lots of money away from rich people who, incidentally are the ones who actually provide jobs for those with less money.

Also a person who claims to be a capitalist rather then a socialist, and then when asked to describe their beliefs, describe either socialism, or Marxism (read the Communist Manifesto if you don't believe me).
Democrats have a majority in both houses of congress

Democrat you crazy!

A Democrat is usually a liberal thinker who believes in progressive action.

Democrats realize that you cannot go back to the 1950s because the world has undergone change that cannot be rolled back. We have a larger population and we live at a faster pace due to technological advances. Liberal means keeping an open mind and being ready to adapt to change. In a changing world this is crucial to survival. Progressive action is adaptive action based on where we are today and where we can expect to be tomorrow.

Small government sounds good, but as populations increase, government is needed to maintain a balance between liberty and justice for all members of society. Government must be just large enough and strong enough to be up to the task of maintaining order while keeping the values and freedoms we have traditionally exhibited as a nation.

Where many Republicans want to turn the clock back to a time when things were simplier, more cut and dried, Democrats do not believe this is possible. Our world is more complex than ever and change is happening at a near exponential rate.

Democrats believe in strong national securityand are staunchly patriotic. A Democrat believes it is necessary to defend America from both external evil and internal corruption. Keeping America on the straight and narrow is an important part of keeping America safe. Democrats understand and accept the responsibility of keeping our country as honorable as it is strong.

Democrats are maligned as tax-and-spend liberals because Democrats voted for tax breaks for low income people, credits for child care and founded many of the social and educational programs we have today. Horror stories of welfare abuse are used to make people think that social programs are bad. But seriously, abuses are going to happen in any system or program because there are always going to be criminals who lie, cheat and steal. This happens at all levels of society, not just among welfare moms. Look at those Enron millionairs who cheated thousands of hard-working people out of their pensions.

Democrats, contrary to popular belief, balance budgets and believe in fair tax structures that do not squeeze the middle class out of existence.

Democrats believe in science and listen to experts. Democrats believe that religion and science can co-exist. Many Democrats are religious people who believe that cherishing and protecting the earth that God created is a sacred charge.

Democrats love America and they love our world. Democrats are fighting and dying in Iraq and Democrats are fighting at home to end the war. Democrats believe war is sometimes necessary but that the Iraq War and current occupation have made us less safe and have strained our proud military to the breaking point. Most military experts agree.

If you want to know what a Democrat really believes, read the platform of the Democratic Party. Watch C-Span and see who is actually voting for what. It is very eye-opening to see Democrats propose legislation that will aid military families and veterans and then watch nearly every Republican Congressman and Senator vote against it.

Watch and listen and learn. Don't close your mind and start believing the hype you hear from the hate-mongers. Learn about Democrats and about democracy.

Above all, Democrats want people to be free to disagree and to hash out their differences. Democrats want people to learn and discuss and come together in the best interests of all concerned. People working things out together is what democracy is all about.
He's studied both sides of the issues that our country is facing and has decided to register as a Democrat because he feels that the Democratic Party best represents the interests ouf America.

I am a proud Democrat.
