CCDP Adopts the Democratic Creed as presented in Democrats 101
By: Karen D
The Clark County Democratic Party Executive Committee unanimously voted to adopt the Democratic Creed as presented in the book Democrats 101. Below is the text of the creed that was adopted.
WE BELIEVE all people are created equal, that this is America’s fundamental ideal.
WE BELIEVE that America is a democracy, by and for the people: ruled by the Constitution 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.
This Creed was created in response to the fundamental question: WHAT IS A DEMOCRAT? Many of the members of both WIN and CCDP have read the short book Democrats 101, and have had opportunities to discuss the ideas set out there.
