We fight for what is right. Period.
Our Republic is not perfect. It never has never been. There were always injustices, threats to our liberties, and dysfunction in our systems. Our country is great because, in every generation, a cohort of Americans woke up every day dreaming that things might be better. Ever since the founders first penned the words, "We the People," Americans have fought side-by-side, shoulder-to-shoulder, to pass off to the next generation a better world than the one they inherited.
We are Democrats because we follow in the footsteps of these American heroes. We have the audacity to dream of a more perfect union, and the courage to fight every day to make it happen.
