What does the Democratic Party stand for?
Advertisements [?]


Does it still stand for the same principles that John Kennedy and Martin Luther King stood for? How long has it been since we have been to the top of the mountain?

Seriously...

Does the Democratic Party still stand for the same principles as Harry Truman and Franklin Delano Roosevelt? Does it still have the same concerns about the "ill-clothed" and "ill-fed" in our country?

Is the Democratic Party still willing to fight for its values as did LBJ? Is there still room in the tent for the poor and disadvantaged?

Or do we now have a new Democratic Party? What does it stand for?

I only ask the questions. I do not have the answers.
