Nov - Kent Bailey - Sierra Club

America needs a strong middle class, and the Democratic party is the only one working for that.
- Elvira Weaver, Brandon
I am a Democrat because it allows my political beliefs to be most in line with my intentions for my community, my children and the living of my Catholic faith.
- Rosalind Moffett, Dover

Because I was born into a Dem family and I’m old enough to remember FDR well.  We loved him!  Dems are “givers” not “takers”!!!  
- "Bo" Barbara Nicholson, Sun City Center
Because Democrats stand up for Union working people who have set all work rules in this country.
- Don Carpus, Valrico

I agree with their ideas and beliefs.  They’re for the middle class, pro-union, pro-choice, etc.  I feel very strongly about these beliefs.
- Lisa, Valrico

I’m a Democrat to save my grandkids from “K” Street, Wall Street and the Mega Banks.
- Kent Bailey, Thonotosassa

Because my faith in things other than me demand it.
- Don Moffett, Dover

I like their core values.

I am a life-long Democrat that likes to paraphrase the philosophy of FDR's economic message, "That the test of our progress is not that we provide an abundance to those who have much, but to provide enough for those that have too little."  
- Harry Palaynes, Valrico
I am a Democrat because I believe government should be a positive influence in the lives of working-class people and families.  I am a Democrat because I believe in social justice, broader prosperity, equal opportunity, and the overall notion of fair play.
- Doug Tudor

Raised in Maryland, and a child of the "sixties," it was a natural choice (and wanted to vote in primaries).  
- Nancy D. Renno, Riverview

I am a Democrat because I belive in human progress, equality, justice and the American Dream.
- Ken Fiallos, Seffner

Because I care about equal rights, the environment, education, and those who slip between the cracks of our society.
- Jean Wilson, Valrico

Because I believe that in order for our voices to be heard, we need to elect people that will be our voices and fight forus.  Our founding fathers said it . . . We the people!  They not say, only the property owners, business owners and those that  make $250,000 per year will reap the benefits of our labor.  It's for all Americans, those born here and those that have come to this great country and have become citizens.
- Michele Yarbrough, Seffner

If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal." 

-- John F Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963)

Why I am a Democrat

Because it’s the thinking woman’s party.

- Teresa McDermott, Valrico

I am a Democrat because I believe in working for a stronger middle class, a healthier environment, a level economic playing field, and a brighter future for not only my own family, but for ALL Americans.
- Michelle Kenoyer, Riverview

I am a Democrat because I believe in a liberal view of life. The freedom to be able to come to my own conclusions is very important to me.
- Alisha Johnston, Tampa
