A new tag for the Democratic Party

After some inspired debate, we have arrived at this possible tagline for the Democratic Party:

Opportunity for all,
responsibility from all,
and community
Granted, none of us are Democratic Party consultants (as far as I know), but ideas have to start somewhere and this is as good a place as any. God knows whatever focus-group testing the Dems have conducted haven't given us squat.

Yet, I wouldn't mind seeing that tagline "massaged" a bit more.

"Opportunity for all" is a no-brainer. It's brilliant.

I like "... and Community". It's vague, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It can be interpreted in so many ways -- all of them positive -- that I think it works. Others have disagreed, and it could be a good issue to discuss.

My biggest concern is the line "responsibility from all" -- I think it's grammatically a bit ackward. Does it mean that everyone is released from any responsibilities? Of course not. I understand what the words are trying to convey, but it could be misconstrued. Remember, this has to be a no-brainer.
