What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

It's time for a new party

Are the American people ready for a new party?

Some people argue the American people have to be "more left" before we start a new working class based people's party.

According to all polls, the majority of the American people are for peace and the reordering of priorities away from military spending and wars and for meeting the needs of the people... with at least thirty percent of the people very favorable to the socialist alternative to capitalism--- how much further left do the American people have to be before we have a new party which reflects these views?

As far as a platform and program for a new party...

How about stand up for democracy, defend the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights and implement the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights?

Enough with the excuses.
