Democrats support the common man

(UNEDITED) Years ago, a friend told me that he was told that he was only a Democrat because FDR brought the Social Security Act into existence. My friend said that was plenty of reason for him to be a Democrat. My maternal grandfather, Roscoe Boden, was elected to six out of eight terms as a Democrat in the 40's, 50's and 60's - three times as a Salt Lake County Commissioner and three times as Salt Lake County Surveyor. Grandad was smart, honest and had great common sense, so that was enough for me to be a Democrat. Grandad's philosophy was that the Democrats were always more for the common man and not the ultra rich. Not much has changed since the 40's, 50s and 60's.
