Why are you a Democrat?

Are you waiting for a check right now? Are you unemployed and waiting for a handout? Are you employed? I am a Democrat for all of the RIGHT reasons not b/c if I am a Democrat I will get a handout. BTW, where do we line up for this check that is solely distributed to the Democrats of America? No WHERE!!! How many Republicans sent back the stimulus check given by, who was that again? Oh yeah, REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT BUSH! If you spent it or saved it you took a handout the same as any Democrat. So since we Democrats do not know where this "handout line" is for us to stand in...can the Republicans who feel the need to assume please point us in the right direction since you seem to know where the handouts are being distributed and who is getting what assistance and what party they are affiliated with?

  • I'm a Democrat because their party beliefs and values line up most with mine. If the Reps would get ridof the Religious Reich I might take them more seriously but I just can't. I believe in womens rights, taking care of the less fortunate, taking care of our environment and keeping religion out of lawmaking. I believe that people are more important than corporations or profits. I don't believe corporations can be trusted to do the right thing and while politicians can be equally corrupt at least we have some say over them, if more people bothered to make their voice heard. I believe war should be the LAST option and real diplomacy can work.

  • I researched both candidates before voting and while Obama wasn't my first choice of the Dems that ran I found I agree with him much more than McCain. I never expected a check or for Obama to solve my lifes ills.

  • I know of a lot of people on public assistant that is republican... I don't think getting handouts neccessarily make someone a democrat. Democrats are just more open to helping people and the world, some of it I agree with some of it I don't. I think democrats do lean more on socialism which a lot of republicans do not want, they feel each to their own you should make your own wealth or living... Some of that I agree with, some of it I don't. I can swing either way, depends on the matter at hands. But I do consider myself a Democrat.

  • i'm not really a democrat.
    i supported obama in this election but i also voted for republican senators.
    i vote for the person, not the party.
