Yesterday, Kos pointed to the American Prospect's challenge for the Democratic message, noting how simply and concisely Republican principles can be expressed:
We believe in freedom and liberty, and we're for low taxes, less government, traditional values, and a strong national defense.Kos and the Prospect want to know what the Democratic version of this statement of beliefs sounds like. The rules: one sentence, no more than 30 words. Here's my first try:
We believe in freedom, liberty and security, justice and equal rights for all, fair taxation that values work, and a government that reflects the American commitment to opportunity through education.I know it's boring. How about you take a shot?
