We democrats on the other hand want all of us to be in the mix for deciding who and what we as a nation will strive to become. We democrats want all citizens to have the experience of pursuing happiness without causing harm with equal opportunity, without barriers republicans subscribe to place on us. We democrats know that all of human life is special and no privilege or advantage outweighs our individual right to express the merit of our convictions from a similar foundation like all others. You see it is democracy that is our flag, not division, not exclusion, not lesser human traits of brutish behavior. The sacrifice that has been given in the name of democracy is immense and most honorable.
We distinguish ourselves from the past fearful myths, mores and superstitions through our innate drive to learn and mature as human beings. We know we are just scratching the surface of our abilities and although we are an amazing species already, the more amazing aspects of who we can become is ahead of us. We need to settle our past into the present with an agenda for the future. But as long as we continue to allow republicans to represent us in our politics, economics, religious adherence and our social structures we will not put our past to rest and not set our present up to springboard into our objective future.
