Make a donation

Why you should make donation

The saying "Money makes the world go round!" applies to politics just as much as it does to life. And unfortunately, money has taken on a greater role in politics over the past few years. With billionaires like the Koch brothers backing the Republican destruction of workers' rights, women's rights, healthcare, sensible gun control, fair tax reform and more, we need to raise money to combat this blight on Democracy and decency. We hope you'll seriously consider making a donation today. Every dollar you give is a dollar we can use to counter the Republican 1% donors.

How to make donation

Making a donation is simple. The Barren County Democratic Party can take cash, check or major credit card. If you'd like to make a donation by credit card, just click the "MAKE DONATION HERE" button below. If you'd like to make a donation by check, make the check payable to "Barren County Democratic Party" and mail it to: Barren County Democratic Party, P.O. Box 1791, Glasgow, KY 42142. State political finance laws dictate that you must also include with your donation your job title and employer name. For a cash donation, please attend one of our meetings or events - do not send cash through the mail.

How your donation is used

You donation will be used for two purposes. Fist and foremost, it will be used to get Democrats elected or re-elected in every office from our local County Magistrates all the way up to the Presidency. We have some very unscrupulous Republicans in some offices that need to be replaced. Second, your donation will be used to fund the operation of the Barren County Democratic Party. After several years of inactivity we are rebuilding and going strong. But the Party needs everything from a stapler and printing paper to the eventual acquisition of office space.

Recurring vs. one-time donations

While we appreciate any donation, rather than giving a one-time donation, please consider setting up a recurring monthly donation. A recurring donation gives us a steady and dependable stream of income over the course of a year, thereby allowing us to budget and plan more efficiently. To make a recurring monthly donation of as little as $5.00 per month, click the "MAKE DONATION HERE" button below.

QUOTES

  • If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal”, then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal”.

    John F. Kennedy – President

  • The essence of the Liberal outlook lies not in what opinions are held, but in how they are held: instead of being held dogmatically, they are held tentatively, and with a consciousness that new evidence may at any moment lead to their abandonment.

    Bertand Russell – Philosopher and Logician

  • I am a Christian and a Democrat, that’s all.

    Franklin D. Roosevelt – President

  • I think that the Democratic Party and progressives generally have gotten confused in getting trapped in this debate about are you liberal or are you centrist? I’m not interested in being a centrist or rushing to the middle, in the sense of just splitting the difference with a radically ideological Bush administration. And that’s how I think we got into trouble in many instances, was we just kept on splitting the difference until you find out you don’t stand for anything, you just keep on compromising.

    Barack Obama – President

  • The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work and then get elected and prove it.

    P.J. O’Rourke – American Political Satirist

  • A gathering of Democrats is more sweaty, disorderly, offhand, and rowdy than a gathering of Republicans; it is also likely to be more cheerful, imaginative, tolerant of dissent, and skillful at the game of give-and-take. A gathering of Republicans is more respectable, sober, purposeful, and businesslike than a gathering of Democrats; it is also likely to be more self-righteous, pompous, cut-and-dried, and just plain boring.

    Clinton Rossiter – American Historian

Frequently asked questions

01.

What is the Democratic Party?

From democrats.org: Since 1848, the Democratic National Committee has been the home of the Democratic Party, the oldest continuing party in the United States. Today we are millions of supporters strong, fighting for progress and helping elect Democrats across the country to state government, Congress, and the White House. There are several core beliefs that tie our party together: Democrats believe that we're greater together than we are on our own—that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. Our party is focused on building an economy that lifts up all Americans, not just those at the top.
