The Moorehead-Lilly campaign is not about elections, because elections under capitalism never change anything substantial. So why run? It’s not about fake promises to offer slightly more crumbs to workers and the oppressed. It’s about organizing to change the whole system. It’s about reaching out to workers, young people, the oppressed communities across the country to say: join us in the biggest, most important campaign of all. The campaign for a revolutionary socialist future.
No greedy banks deciding where we can work and live. No cops killing Black youth. No corporations polluting our rivers. No Pentagon invading and killing around the world. No discrimination, no inequality, no injustice.
We fight for socialism. Socialism means the workers, the oppressed communities, students and youth take over the economy and run it in a planned way for human need and not profit. Socialism means that quality health care, housing, education and jobs are fundamental human rights. Socialism means getting rid altogether of the banks, the capitalists and the exploitation of workers and getting rid of the racist state as well as sexism, LGBTQ bigotry and all forms of oppression. Socialism means an end to borders between working people and international solidarity with working and oppressed peoples all over the world, not endless war and intervention. Nothing short of socialist revolution will do.
Our ideas for the future are very different from those of candidates who talk about “democratic socialism.” They’re for leaving capitalism, with its inherent racism, oppression and exploitation, in place. We fight instead to overturn capitalism root and branch and replace it with a planned economy run by the people. People’s power.
People power drives our campaign, and we need your help to bring the campaign’s message to struggles and communities across the U.S. — please consider making a donation of $5, $10, $20, or $50 to support the Moorehead-Lilly campaign as we bring the fight for revolutionary socialism across the country over the coming months!
