The Peace and Freedom Party needs your contribution

May 3, 2012

Why are you asking me for money?
Why don’t you ask somebody who can afford it?

Yes, we know you can’t afford to contribute much money to a political organization.  So why don’t we ask some rich people for money – they have plenty, right?  The answer is simple:  we are adversaries of the rich, not their collaborators.  The Democrats and Republicans, and some of the smaller parties too, depend for their funding on those who have become wealthy under our present economic system.  Such parties will not, of course, really challenge the rule of the rich, even if their rhetoric sometimes pretends to do so.  We directly challenge the control over our lives exercised by the super-rich who control our economy, and control our political system too through money power.

So the only place we can get funding is from you, the members of the working class: those who produce, distribute and maintain everything, while the rich become richer from your labor.  The working class also includes those who seek work, those who are too disabled to work,  those who have retired after a lifetime of work, and students who are preparing for their working lives.  If you are not making money from the labor of others, if you are among “those without capital in a capitalist society,” we are on your side, we work to improve your lives and secure your future.

Everything helps!  We need tens of thousands of dollars for this year’s efforts, but if thousands give a few dollars each, we can accomplish much.  And if you are lucky this month, and have a few extra dollars, a larger donation would help even more.  We get no large donations, no corporate donations, no donations from the wealthy who reap the benefits from the present system (and should be taxed to support the needs of the system’s victims).  No, they don’t give money to people who distribute signs at demonstrations saying “Tax the rich and their corporations.”  If we want our side represented in elections, we need to raise the money from those we speak for.
