This week, the Washington State Democrats launched a #DemSelfie social media campaign to try and divert attention from how poorly its candidates did in the primary election earlier this month. Using #DemSelfie, participants are encouraged to take a selfie and explain why they are proud to be a Democrat.
Considering the #DemSelfie campaign’s limited participation thus far, SHIFT would like help out with a couple suggestions for captions based on the state Democrat platform and the policies promoted by elected Democrats in Olympia:
I’m a Democrat because …
… I want a state income tax!
… my union told me I am!
… I like government running my life?
… I think higher taxes are the answer to every problem!
… bigger government is always better!
And finally, that oldie, but goodie: I’m a Democrat because it’s easier than thinking.
Feel free to share your own Democrat definitions at #DemSelfie on Twitter – because the state Democrats need more than their staff to participate in this campaign – or it will turn out just like the primary.
