WHAT WE STAND FOR
Alabama’s people have long trusted the Alabama Democratic Party to fight for jobs and a growing economy. The auto industry is a shining example of our efforts that has provided thousands of high paying jobs for middle class folks. We are now fighting to repair a decade of damage and grow an economy based on hard work and responsibility, not greed and reckless speculation. This will not happen overnight, but in the long run we will continue to spur job creation, rebuild our infrastructure, invest in clean-energy technologies and control rampant speculation of Wall Street.
Democrats inherited an economy in free fall, with huge deficits, skyrocketing health care costs, dwindling employment, and housing and banking markets on the brink of collapse. It is the Democrats that have stabilized the financial system and helped to prevent a second Great Depression. An economy that was losing 700,000 job a month is now gaining jobs.
Democrats have cut taxes for 95 percent of working families, provided help for small business and homeowners and strengthened consumer protections for anyone who has a credit card or bank loan.
Democrats recognize that education is the most pressing economic issue in America’s future, and we will not allow our country to fall behind the rest of the world. We must provide a quality education for our children, without raising taxes or declaring proration on an annual basis. The Education Lottery is the answer to quality education, job creation, and a growing economy. This will prepare the next generation for success in college and the workforce, ensuring that Alabama children will become global leaders in creativity and achievement.
Alabama Democrats are committed to protecting our natural resources and ensuring the quality of our air, water and land for future generations. As we can see from the spoiling of our gulf shores, environmental protection is crucial not only to combat climate change but to protect our jobs dependent on the marine and tourist economies.
Finally, Alabama Democrats believe in PEOPLE, regardless of wealth, social status, gender, or race. Discrimination based upon ignorant bias has no place in a society that values freedom and liberty for all.
We believe that you share our values as well, and invite you to join our efforts to elect Democratic candidates to office on November 2, 2010. We would be honored by your vote.
