From the Platform


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.

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.
