From the Platform

Freedom, Justice and Crime

We call for the defense and extension of the liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, including freedom of speech, press, assembly and association, and the right to keep and bear arms for individual and collective defense. The ultimate guarantee of those rights is the organized strength of the working class.

Capitalism and poverty breed crime and repression. Working class people are the primary victims both of street crime and of police reaction to it. The bosses use laws against victimless activities, "legal" and illegal expansion of police powers, military and paramilitary occupation of poor and minority communities, and diversion of resources to police and jails, to keep workers intimidated and dependent.

Miriam Clark of Encinitas is running for Congress in the 50th Congressional District. She has lived in San Diego County most of her life, and has been very active in the movements for peace and social justice. A retired social worker and union activist, Miriam has done considerable travel abroad, sometimes with delegations and sometimes as a tourist, including visits to Mexico, Cuba, Nicaragua, Iran, Iraq, North Africa, Australia, and Russia, among others.

Miriam Clark is concerned about the whole range of federal issues, but she has several key stands that define her campaign:

  • Stop the wars now! Immediately withdraw all troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. No nukes ever!
  • Amnesty and full rights for all immigrants. Stop blaming the least powerful among us for the problems created by the powerful.
  • Health care for all. A single-payer universal health care system, out from under the thumb of the insurance profiteers, will protect everyone's health.
  • Public ownership of the oil industry, from well to pump. Stop the gouging. Our oil should be the property of our people. And only dispossessing the billionaire owners of the energy corporations will permit real progress toward clean energy.

The 50th District is entirely within San Diego County, including Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, San Marcos, Escondido and parts of the city of San Diego.
