Why Democrats?

1. Because, Trump. EVEN IF YOU ARE REPUBLICAN. independent. libertarian.
  • Trump is anti-Democratic, anti-Republican, anti-American
  • Trump is destroying not only everything Americans hold dear, but endangering our very existence by policy moves that worsen climate change.
  • Trump is hurting our fellow Americans.
3. Because Democrats, while imperfect, are attempting to move the ball forward.
  • The last time Dems held 2/3 parts of government, they attempted to get healthcare to more Americans. What did the GOP do? Try to take healthcare away and give the rich $1.5 trillion in tax breaks.
  • In the last 38 years Democrats have had control of both President and both Houses of Congress for only 3 years (see this chart and this chart).
4. Because Democrats are fighting for ALL THE PEOPLE, not just the 1%!

“There is no perfect party and no perfect candidate. But if you don’t vote, you’re not even at the table–you’re on the MENU. And if they don’t give you a place at the table, you gotta crash the party and bring a folding chair.” –Shirley Chisholm
