What It Means To Be A Democrat

Democrats are people who come from many ethnic, social, and economic groups. What unites us (loosely) is a set beliefs and values about governance. All forms of governments have flaws. Because our US Constitution provides for a democratic form of government, as Democrats, we accept responsibility for how we are governed and who is doing the governing. Instead of identifying government as the problem, we work together to create and sustain the following:

1. The right of all citizens to vote without hinderance

2. Equal opportunity for all citizens

3. Rewarding honest, hard work with a living wage and a fair tax system

4. Family values that are more than a political slogan

5. Quality education that allows all to reach their potential

6. Freedom from government interference in our private lives and personal decisions

7. A diverse populace and society that benefits from that diversity

8. Security in our homes and safety on our streets

9. Separation of church and state

10. A strong United States: Strong morally, economically, and militarily

11. Laws and common sense reforms that protect our air, water, and food

12. Affordable health care for all

Resource: AZ Blue 2020 PC Survival Guide

The Sun City Democratic Club is a political club chartered by the RCSC. We provide educational programs to educate our members on topics relevant to our population, community, state, and nation. We support candidates who exemplify our values, by registering people to vote, signing petitions, canvassing, holding house parties, getting out the vote, and phone banking. As individuals we make charitable donations to organizations such as the Valley View Food Bank, groups such as Planned Parenthood, and to individual candidates.

Arizona Democrats work to elect public servants who will build stronger communities based upon these above beliefs and values.

      FYI We had a member attend the Repub. club here in SC. He reports that our coffees get more people than their actual meeting. Our meetings are HUGE in comp. to theirs. This is what 45 has wrought! Our membership is burgeoning.

      I just love your series of articles. My daughter was Paul Babbits 3rd in command and sadly they lost an election. Paul was my ski coach and I think a very good man.

      Del Webb was a SOB and built out Sun City as a full on prick. My dad took a side tour of the chicken farm Del displaced just to show us that development was killing our Arizona. My mother in law was his press secretary for a bit and negotiated his "London Bridge" next to the Colorado.

      So it strikes me as odd that folk who live in a fully representative community of Republican terror are democrats. Go figure.
