Ed Case on Principles & Values
Former Democratic Representative (HI-2, until 2007)
I am ready, willing and able to undertake this great responsibility. I love our country passionately and understand the tradition and role of the Senate. The sum total of my 53 years, including my roots in our Hawai’i, twenty years in our private sector, and twenty years now at all levels of our government including Congress, have given me what is required to fulfill this most important of obligations. I know that I can serve you and our fellow citizens well in the Senate for the next generation. Our future is now!
As New Democrats, we believe in a Third Way that rejects the old left-right debate and affirms America’s basic bargain: opportunity for all, responsibility from all, and community of all.
Since its inception, the DLC has championed policies from spurring private sector economic growth, fiscal discipline and community policing to work based welfare reform, expanded international trade, and national service. Throughout the 90’s, innovative, New Democrat policies implemented by former DLC Chairman President Bill Clinton have helped produce the longest period of sustained economic growth in our history, the lowest unemployment in a generation, 22 million new jobs, cut the welfare rolls in half, reduced the crime rate for seven straight years, balanced the budget and streamlined the federal bureaucracy to its smallest size since the Kennedy administration.
Now, the DLC is promoting new ideas -- such as a second generation of environmental protection and new economy and technology development strategies -- that is distinctly different from traditional liberalism and conservatism to build the next generation of America’s leaders.
