Socialism is a common-sense path to a fairer, more prosperous and more democratic USA. Socialism is also a desperate necessity as capitalism and its unrelenting drive for profits threaten to make our planet uninhabitable. Working families in America – the 99% - between us create all the products and services that make our country the richest nation in the history of humankind. It doesn’t make sense that these collectively produced resources are owned and controlled by a tiny handful of billionaires. The fight for socialism is a dynamic process to fulfill the vision of a future of peace, justice and fairness for our nation and our world.

Bernard Sampson, TX: We aren't like other parties. We are a party dedicated to the overthrow of the capitalist class in this country.  The propaganda against us is not the same as it is for others, and so reactions...

What has remained the same and what has changed in this regard? Marx saw the necessity of making a distinction between property rights and human rights. Is this still valid? Lenin, basing himself on the experience of the Paris Commune, called for "smashing the state" and establishing a new form of workers government. What does Marxism have to say about the growth of the state into many aspects of modern life with internet being a prime...

  The Communist Party USA indignantly  denounces the cowardly drone attack on President Nicolas Maduro of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.   While we are glad that the attack failed to reach its target, and we express our solidarity with those persons who were injured. The capture and punishment of the individuals responsible for this atrocious act is of greatest importance. However, we note that the attack would not have  taken place had it not been for the support that right wing forces inside and outside Venezuela have been giving to efforts at economic sabotage and political and social destabilization...
