The Common Good
We, as Democrats, place the welfare of the people as our highest priority. We believe in the values of community, dignity, equality, opportunity, fairness, tolerance, respect, and the common good of the world we share. These values provide the basis for our ideals and are supported by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Our actions define our society. To fulfill the potential of our values and ideals, we encourage every citizen to participate in civic activities. We invite all to join with us and work to have our elected representatives implement legislation that ensures peace, prosperity, liberty, and justice for all.
It is the sovereign right of the people and necessary to their well being for their chosen representatives to govern in a manner that will protect their health, safety, and welfare.
