Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am an elected leader of the Socialist Workers Party. The purpose of our party is to educate and and organize the working class in order to establish a workers and farmers government in the United States. This will abolish capitalism in the U.S. as part of joining the worldwide struggle for socialism. Taking power out of the hands of the tiny US ruling class is a life and death questions for the working class. The ruling rich, with their crisis-ridden system will result in more and more catastrophes for the working class. All of history says that when their crisis reaches a certain stage they will unleash fascist gangs against the working-class as their forebearers did in Germany and Italy in the last century.

Our campaign solidarizes with workers struggles for higher wages and improved working conditions. A current example is the coal miners on strike at Warrior-Met Coal in Alabama. We support foights for workers control of working conditions and job safety.

We will fight against the systematic racism the capitalists depend on to maiximie their profits. Along this road we will organize to demand that cops who brutalize and kill workers, whether they are Black, Latino, or Caucasian be arrested and prosecuted. We will fight against every manifestation of anti-semitism and Jew-hatred. 

Our campaign defends Cuba's Socialist Revolution and we demand an end to Washington's brutal six-decade long economic embargo against that country. 

We demand amnesty for undocumented workers, a necessary step to unify the working class to fight more effectively against the bosses and government who try to divide.
