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.

  • Q
    What is CPUSA stance on the FEDERAL Reserve Banking System? Income taxes and property taxes, should they be abolished?
  • A
    Hi, and thanks for writing in.  You raise an interesting question. Since I'm a bit more familiar with the tax code than with the Federal Reserve, I'm going to concentrate on that.  But I think the basic idea is the same.  Unless we abolish capitalism, abolishing taxes and a central bank will just help the rich. From CPUSA's perspective, the problem isn't taxation itself.  It's who pays taxes, how much they pay, and what the money is used for.  Basically, the working class and small business owners get screwed in three ways. First, our tax system is extremely regressive, meaning less wealthy people bear a disproportionate part of the tax burden. We pay income taxes and property taxes (and sales...

  Thank you to both the youth of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela and the youth of the Communist Party of Venezuela for hosting this General Council Meeting of the World Federation of Democratic Youth and for helping an American citizen like myself enter the country under such dire circumstances. As many of you can probably imagine, the youth of the Communist Party USA has had no break since the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency in 2016. Since then, over 3,000 new members have joined our ranks; mostly under the age of 35. The excitement over...

  Tony Pecinovsky, president of the St. Louis Worker’s Education Center (AFL-CIO), spoke to an audience of 40 people on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh last week. His talk, “Fighting Racism with Solidarity: 100 Years of Radical Struggle,” focused on the oft-ignored role of communists in the struggle against racism from the 1930s through the 1970s. The talk opened with a brief discussion of the relationship between capitalism and race, “acknowledging slavery and genocide as capitalism’s midwives.” Pecinovsky went on to describe the emergence of a strong “Red-Black alliance” under the leadership of Communist Party leader...
