From the Democratic Party's Platform on Restoring and Strengthening Our Democracy
Democrats believe that the interests and the voices of the American people should determine our elections. Money is not speech, and corporations are not people. Democrats will fight to pass a Constitutional amendment that will go beyond merely overturning Citizens United and related decisions like Buckley v. Valeo by eliminating all private financing from federal elections.
In the meantime, Democrats will work with Congress on legislation to strengthen the public funding system by matching small-dollar donations for all federal candidates, crack down on foreign nationals who try to influence elections, and ensure that super PACs are wholly independent of campaigns and political parties. We will bring an end to “dark money” by requiring full disclosure of contributors to any group that advocates for or against candidates, and bar 501(c)(4) organizations from spending money on elections. Democrats will ban corporate PACs from donating to candidates and bar lobbyists from donating, fundraising, or bundling for anyone they lobby.
The Democratic Party of Douglas County is an all-volunteer organization. But we need your support to keep our office open, buy office supplies and campaign materials, pay postage, and to support our candidates.
You can make a one-time or recurring donation through ActBlue, the Democrats’ online home for small-dollar donors.
Or you can mail us a check, payable to the Douglas County Democratic Central Committee to:
