I get this question a lot surprisingly as a trans woman. I think it is due to so many of my fans are surprisingly conservative, as well many of my fans are subscribers to Blaire White. So maybe from watching her they think I would hold the same ideology. Yes, there are plenty of conservative trans-women. I actually got this idea from my trans girl friend Veronika where she explained to her followers and trans women why she’s a Republican as a trans woman. I thought I would do the same. I think healthy discourse is so needed in this political environment. I feel we all throw fits and run to our corners, so I want to give the reasons I’m democratic voter.
I am a democrat because
I believe in economic security for everyone, not just the top 5 percent of Americans.
I believe that government giving money to the rich doesn’t create jobs for the rest of us.
I believe government should reward businesses only after they have created jobs for Americans.
I believe in a free enterprise system for the working and middle classes, not just global corporations.
I believe in both limited government within reason and limited big business.
I believe in free competitive economic markets for local and small businesses, not just distant and monopolistic corporations.
I believe no one should go bankrupt, lose their home and life savings, or die because they can’t afford health care and don’t have reasonable health insurance.
I believe in the family; specifically in policies that support the family — like paid parental leave, more support for public schools, a safe and sustainable environment, more prenatal health care, better support for working moms, better day care programs for our children and immigration policies that don’t punish children or split up families.
I believe that my opinions, beliefs, and values should be based on reason, evidence, and compassion, not on fear, anger, and ignorance.
I believe in fiscal responsibility, but that sacrifice should first come from those who can afford it, not from the poor.
I believe the rich don’t always earn their wealth, and the poor frequently aren’t to blame for their poverty.
I believe no one should be homeless, hungry, abused, or neglected regardless of the causes.
I believe prisons should be for violent offenders, not drug addicts.
I believe terrorism is a reprehensible criminal act, not an act of war. Thus the “war on terror” is deeply flawed.
I believe to be great America doesn’t have to be better than every other country, but only constantly improving in providing every American the equal and fair opportunity to flourish.
I believe each person, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, deserves equal respect and equal rights to pursue a meaningful life. That an American is American and we are all born with the same rights.
I believe obviously that overall democrats are better on social issues and rights especially for my community.
I believe our government should reflect most of the country. Our government doesn’t reflect most Americans. It is 2020 and we need to catch up in Washington.
I believe in Climate Change and we need to do something about it.
I don’t believe cutting regulations for banks and Wallstreet helps us
I don’t believe if the Stockmarket is doing good it means the economy is good.
I believe in reparations.
I believe we spend way too much on military spending and not enough on education, homelessness, and infrastructure.
I believe in the separation of church and state.
I believe in Labor Unions
I believe in commonsense gun control and immigration reform
Finally, I am a Democrat because I believe we are responsible for each other. That we need to work together to protect America and its people. All people! I fundamentally believe that our government and the laws it makes should give rights to our citizens, not take them away. That is why I support same-sex marriage and protections for LGBT rights, for example. That is why I think states should make it easier, not harder, for residents to vote.
