Throughout our history, it has been the Democratic Party that day in and day out has stood up for civil rights, the environment, health insurance reform, energy independence and a host of other important issues. When everyday Americans need a voice as they struggle to make ends meet, Democrats stand by them and fight for an economy that favors the middle class, not corporations. From President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s G.I. Bill to President Obama’s Student Aid and Financial Responsibility Act passed earlier this year, Democrats have opened the doors of opportunity for millions of Americans to go to college.Today, students stand united to engage our peers in support of President Obama and on the key issues facing our generation. President Obama listened to young people in 2008 when we volunteered for his campaign, came out, and voted. Today, President Obama continues to fight for college students as he works to get our economy back on track. When it comes to fairness and equality, we believe that all Americans should have the same opportunities to achieve the American Dream – regardless of race, gender, religion, disability or sexual orientation. But equality doesn’t stop there. When it comes to securing the energy resources of the future, we believe that America needs to turn away from our addiction to fossil fuels and harness the capabilities of alternative energy to build a Green economy. A Green economy will protect our environment and create jobs that cannot be shipped overseas and put us back on the path to leadership in fighting global warming. We believe that every American should have access to quality, affordable health care. We believe in stronger schools and safer streets. We believe in civil liberties. We believe that it is our responsibility to care for our seniors and secure Social Security for the next generation. And we believe that to win in the future, young people must speak up now. IF any of the above issues interest you, or you want to learn more, join college democrats and come to a meeting, hope to see you there!
