WHAT WE STAND FOR
An all-volunteer organization, the Longboat Key Democratic Club offers opportunities to make change at the grassroots level, learn, and enjoy fellowship with like-minded people. We work to introduce candidates, educate citizens about the key issues, and get Democrats elected at all levels of government.
JOE IS OUR GUY.
HE GETS THINGS DONE.
President Joe Biden is running for a second term, and we should all cheer. While some Democrats may have thought he is too old to be our candidate, they are now unifying around him.
Our early support of Biden is important because it means we can devote our energies and resources to building momentum, especially while Republicans continue to dissipate their resources and goodwill in their ongoing internecine war between Donald Trump and his challengers.
President Biden deserves our support because of his considerable achievements. Use this starter list of accomplishments to explain to people who are uncertain about Biden why they must vote for him:
Created over 12 million jobs and achieved one of the lowest unemployment rates in 50 years.
Cut the national deficit from 11.5% of Gross National Product in the Trump years to just -6.5%.
Made the largest investment in climate and clean energy ever.
Passed the historic bipartisan infrastructure law – the largest investment in our roads and bridges since President Eisenhower.
Strengthened the Affordable Care Act by lowering healthcare premiums and prescription drug costs for seniors.
Passed the first significant new gun control legislation in 30 years.
Rescinded Trump's worldwide ban on permanent immigration by almost everyone other than spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens.
Rallied the world to stand up against Putin and for the future of democracy.
When you talk with family and friends, it’s vitally important to trumpet these achievements. Collectively, by tapping into our relationships with people who trust us, we can have a massive positive impact on the outcome of elections.
Don’t be afraid to talk about politics – politely and respectfully. It’s not dirty. It’s our job if we want to protect our democracy.
