What Kind of Democrat are You?

I was born in Dallas, TX.

I served my country as a grunt in the Army. I've crawled in the mud, froze my balls off, and toughed out the desert.

My first job was a neighborhood paper route. I've been a short order cook. I've ran my own business and employed Americans who needed work. I currently work for a multinational corporation. I will never be rich, but I will always be persistent.

I married the love of my life. Thirteen years this October. She gave me three beautiful children to adore. We push our children on their studies, and promote physical activity. We put what money we can away for their future education.

My faith drives me. I learned how to share at a young age. Yet still I am a sinner.

How's that for personal responsibility?

I'm a Democrat...

What kind of Democrat are you?

And this is not a rhetorical question, I really need to know. What kind of Democrat are you? We are such a diverse and unique group of Americans; it is just as important to know our differences as it is to unite our common goals. Your personal life stories of self sacrifice and accomplishments are just as important as the next, no matter where on the scale of mundane to extraordinary you fall. It takes us all to make the whole. I hope you will take this simple template I prepared and post your own personal version.

The mantel of "personal responsibility" was unfairly striped from us over thirty years ago...It's time we got it back. The cheaters sure don't deserve it.

So tell me, what kind of Democrat are you? It will be easy. Just be honest, tell us where you were born, and end your list of sacrifices and/or accomplishments with:

Maybe the DNC will take this idea and put together an awesome series of commercials with examples from nurses, firemen, electricians, astronauts, teachers, painters, policeman, daycare workers, bus drivers, executives, sports stars, farmers, convenient store clerks, bankers, sanitation workers, bartenders, doctors, house wives, etc...

You can turn the DNC on to the idea here. It starts with us.

I was born and raised in the Midwest, the grandchildren of immigrants.

I served my country in the Army. I didn't always like it but I did it.

I've been a paper boy, a dishwasher, a childcare worker, and a professional. I've always tried to do my best.

I'm happily married and I love my three kids. I coach sports and I do homework with them.

I volunteer for my community. When I asked, my friends and neighbors voted for me.

How's that for personal responsibility?

So I guess "The crying-on-the-inside kind" isn't the answer you're looking for...
