From the Platform

Socialism

We support social ownership and democratic management of industry and natural resources. Under capitalism, the proceeds of labor go to the profits of the wealthy few. With socialism, production is planned to meet human needs.

To us, socialism is workers' democracy, including the principle that all officials are elected, recallable at any time, and none receives more than a worker's wage. Socialism can only be brought about when we, the working class, unite and act as a body in our own interests. Our goals cannot be achieved by electoral means alone. We participate in mass organization and direct action in neighborhoods, workplaces, unions and the armed forces everywhere.

Larry Allen of Oakland was active in the movement to impeach Bush and Cheney, and is running for Congress to point out how many things have failed to change with the Democratic Party in charge in the House, Senate, and White House. Larry says that these things continue: "Two wars based on Bush administration lies; Bank bailouts and billions in bonuses; Spying on our e-mails and phone calls; Guantanamo prison and indefinite detention; 'Don't ask, don't tell' policy in the military; Enormous profits for insurance companies; Health care as a costly privilege, not a right." Larry tells voters to "send the Dems a message by re-registering Peace and Freedom Party."

Larry is running in the 9th Congressional District, roughly the northern third of Alameda County.
