Can someone here justify being a democrat? I've only recently started voting and believe in voting for the person - not just the party, which is why I can't bring myself to vote for Kerry. I certainly wish we had a better option than Bush, but I don't think Kerry is it. I like certain aspects of Democrats, like saving the environment, pro-choice, & hand out programs to underprivilaged families (to a very pine point). Also, I think we really need to fix Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, Affirmative Action, etc... It seems like Democrats are just constantly increasing taxes to expand these programs. I'm still open to opinions, and I just want to know people's justification for this stuff.
