I am proud to be a member of the party that passed the Civil Rights Act.

I am proud to a member of the party of Representative John Lewis:

I am PROUD to be a member of the party that elected Barack Obama to be President of the United States.

I am proud to be a member of the party that championed health care for Americans, that made health care insurance possible for people like my niece, Kate, who was diagnosed with diabetes when she was 16 months old.  Thanks to OUR party, Kate will be able to stay on her parents' insurance plan until she is 26 -- and by then, the insurance companies will not be able to say "no" to her.

I am proud to be a member of the party of FDR, who rescued this country from the Great Depression and stopped fascism in Europe.

I am proud to be a member of the party of Robert Francis Kennedy, who fought for the poor and disenfranchised:

I am proud to be a member of the party of Edward M. Kennedy, who championed those who were without hope.

I am proud to be a member of the party of Christopher and Dana Reeve. I am proud to be a member of the party that Dana Reeve came out of mourning for.  I am proud to be a member of the party that Dana supported -- that she came out of mourning for her wonderful husband, Christopher Reeve, to endorse, in order to support the candidacy of John Kerry -- because she believed so much in the importance of embryonic stem cell research.  Please read the diary of kossack Zacapoet here

Dana and Chris.


I am proud to be a Democrat.

I will, as will my 80-year-old Mom, be voting for every Democrat tomorrow.  We are proud to be Democrats.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
