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.

Education should be free, pre-school through university PDF Print E-mail

This statement on education was issued by C.T. Weber on September 21, 2010.

Nothing is more important to the future of our country than high-quality education. We need scientists, engineers, technicians, and skilled workers in every field. We need an educated society.

Education is so important to all of us that it should be provided free (as it once was in California) from pre-school through trade schools, colleges and universities. Tuition is just a tax on young people trying to get an education, a tax many of them simply cannot afford. When I went to college there was no tuition and only nominal fees, so we know it can be done.

This state has money, it is just concentrated in a few hands. We need to spread it around. We can do this by shifting the tax burden back to those best able to pay, the wealthy few who have reaped the benefits of the system.

C. T. Weber is the Peace and Freedom Party nominee for Lieutenant Governor. The Lieutenant Governor is an ex-oficio member of the Board of Regents of the University of California.
