I decided to join the Democratic party because I believe our country works best when we work together. The Democratic party exemplifies this by supporting the poor and working class individuals, not just leaving them behind, in order to allow a select few to continue to acquire massive wealth. For years, this nation has believed in ideas such as public education and social security, because programs such as these allow everyone to have a chance at a quality life for themselves and their families. These programs are suddenly under attack because the idea of helping each other out has been vilified by many in power. The Democratic party, though, has continued to support these important programs. So, when people ask me why I am a Democrat, I tell them it’s because I believe that when we are a unified country that works together anything is possible.
