Democrats 101 - Their Creed
for more information about this group

We the People are THE government and those WE elect to represent us have an unwavering commitment to serve in our best interests and needs.

  • We believe all people are created equal, that this is a fundamental American ideal.

  • We believe that America is a democracy, of, by and for the people: ruled by the Constitution, a living document, and its interpretations, protected by the Bill of Rights, and inspired by the Declaration of Independence.

  • We believe these founding documents demand Freedom, Justice, and Opportunity for all Americans, in full and equal measure—regardless of who you are, what you believe, or where you live.

  • We believe that the Duty of government is to strive endlessly to make the ideals of Freedom, Justice, and Opportunity a reality for all.

  • We believe that the Purpose of government is to protect our nation, defend our democracy, and to endlessly promote the welfare of each and every one of us. 

We believe that fighting for these ideals is our purpose as a political party.


We hold these things to be self-evident:

Freedom means:

  • The right of every citizen to shape their own life, and their beliefs, so long as it does not infringe on the rights or safety of others.

  • The free flow of information and movement.

  • The right to privacy.

  • Free and fair elections, at every level, in every place in America. 

  • Elections that are free of influential, self-serving monetary wealth: corporate or personal.

  • Elections that are fully transparent.

  • Elections that guarantee unlimited and easy access to voting for every American citizen.

Justice means: 

  • A society where every citizen is safe in their person, their home, and their day-to-day lives.

  • A society where every citizen is treated with dignity, regardless of race, creed, or personal difference of any kind.

  • A society where every citizen is treated equally before the law, and by the law, and that no person is above the rule of law.

  • A cultural, society, and systems, where racism is wrong, where discrimination is wrong, where the government intervenes when racism or discrimination threatens a person’s basic rights.

Opportunity means:

  • Every American deserves an equal chance to pursue their dreams, to be judged on their ability and their effort alone.

  • Every American, child and adult alike, deserves the education that gives them that chance.

  • Every American adult deserves dignity, the chance to earn a living wage, with working conditions, and treatment—a suitable reward for the effort and skill put in.

  • Every American deserves to live without fear of hunger or homelessness or lack of medical care. These are rights that are America’s moral duty to provide.

  • Every American deserves to live in a healthy environment that includes:  clean air, clean water, and safe food. 

  • Every American deserves the chance to move forward: no one left out by change, and no one left behind—no matter who they are or where they live.

We further believe that American democracy depends on. . .

  • A free and independent press, dedicated to truth and objectivity.

  • An educated citizenry with free and easy access to information.

  • A nation that accepts and embraces diversity.

  • Full financial transparency in election campaigns, in political office, and in government transactions.

  • An American economy based on socially responsible Free Enterprise, and protected by the government from the baser instincts of large corporations and the financially powerful.

  • The continued existence of a strong military, free of political involvement and financial corruption, and dedicated to protecting us against all enemies foreign and domestic.

  • Educators and law enforcement officers being treated as among the most important parts of society, stringently selected from those meeting exacting national standards of professionalism, ethics and psychological motivation, and well paid. 

  • American citizens who care. Without this, nothing is possible.
