About This Site

All Things Democrat is a partisan site in the U.S. for Democrats and others who support Democratic Party ideals and principles. Our bloggers provide smart analysis and opinion on the latest political news, issues and hot topics of interest to Dems.

ATD was founded in 2006 by Doug Marquardt, a progressive Democrat from Wisconsin, with a mission to share important information with Dems and support the online liberal and progressive community. As a site for Democrats, we are continuously attacked by the right and, sadly, by some on the far left. We make no apologies to either side for supporting Democrats. We believe the ideals and principles of the Democratic Party are best for the majority of Americans. Like most Democrats, our writers and readers are an incredibly diverse group with a wide range of opinions. Democrats are hawks and doves, members of the armed forces and the peace movement, pro-choice and pro-life, religious and non-believers, business owners and labor, straight and LGBT, and multi-racial. Unlike many on the right, we celebrate our diversity.

The site is run by a talented team of volunteers from all walks of life. In addition to the blog, we’ve added a variety of useful resources over the years, including:

  • Jobs4Dems.com, a new jobs board created for the 2014 campaigns and other jobs for Democrats.
  • Original series, including Election Reports, Vetting Democrats, Stupid Conservative Quotes and the Republican War on Women
  • A comprehensive, categorized Links database of lefty sites.
  • A Custom Search of the over 300+ links in our Links database (no unwanted right-wing results).
  • Headline feeds from trusted news sources, top liberal and progressive blogs, issue-based sites and official party sites.
  • New Video galleries from official party orgs and issues-based orgs (see header menu).
  • Freebies (or widgets) to add content to lefty blogs.
  • Important U.S. Historical Documents in printable form.

All of these can be found in the site navigation menu in the header, with the exception of our Custom Search at the bottom-right of the header. Part of our ongoing mission is to support Dem-friendly bloggers by sharing their work with our readers, and providing useful resources to help them blog. We update our blogroll regularly. If you do not see a lefty blog that should be added to our blogroll, feel free to suggest it via our Contact page (U.S. sites, only).

We hope you enjoy this site as we carry out our mission to support Democrats. If you have suggestions for the site or story tips, please send us a note via our Contact page.
