First we have to say that the World Socialist Party of the United States is the only party that squarely stands for democracy. The World Socialist Party is essentially the party of the working class. What other parties can say the same? Capitalist parties cunningly contrive to divide the workers. The World Socialist Party is uniting them upon one issue: Ending wage-slavery. The call of the World Socialist Party is to the exploited class to rally together and put an end class conflict by conquering the capitalist government, taking possession of the means of production, and making them common property of all, abolishing wage-slavery and establishing the cooperative commonwealth.
The Republican and Democratic parties are together as one in their allegiance to Wall Street and capitalist corporations; they draw their campaign funds from the same source and have mortgaged their policies to their donors, the economic masters of the working class and the real political rulers of the nation. A vote for either of these parties is a vote for plutocratic mis-rule and the continued domination by the oligarchy. Every millionaire or billionaire in the land is in the Republican Party or the Democratic Party. They are the enemy of socialism for the very reason that socialism is the enemy of them. The Republican and Democratic twins are for the corporations and against the people. The Republican and Democratic parties are maintained for the same purpose, and that is to serve Big Business, and if the Democratic Party secures the presidency, it will be just as subservient to business interests as the Republican Party has been under the administrations of Trump. More and more Americans, opening their eyes to the real situation and looking at the record of the Republican Party and then at that of the Democratic Party, and now declare : “A plague on both your house.” It is time to turn towards the revolutionary socialist movement that can usher in a new era of for all mankind.
Some of the boss class realize that the rule of the Republican Party has become so rank and rotten with Trump that it is time to switch over to the Biden for a fresh lease of power. The capitalists need the Democratic Party for that very business, or it would long since have ceased to exist. The American working class have been shouting for the Democratic and Republican parties. They have been voting the capitalist parties. They have elected the same political parties into power whose mission it is today to protect and advance the class interests of capitalism. The politicians court you and flatter you before the day of the election; after election day they once again detest and despise you. Both are the tools of capitalism. The cause of the Democratic and Republican parties is a bad cause, a rotten cause, based on the principle of deceiving the working class for the purpose of enabling the ruling classes to continue their system of exploiting and robbing the toilers. Are you not ashamed of voting for the Republican or Democratic candidates? We want you to fight for the freedom of your own class and join the working class party, which is the World Socialist Party.
The ballot at election times expresses the people’s will. It gives people a voice. Centuries of struggle and sacrifice were required to wrest this freedom from tyranny’s grip. The abuse and not the use of it is responsible for the evils its critics ascribe to the electoral system. The Republican Party is the representative of the capitalist class. Prosperity galore; give us four more. The Democratic Party is the wailing cry of calamity without end. The modern wage worker remains the wage worker, and there is no possible escape and even under the influence of Democratic or Republican oratory, the day is to dawn when he will realize he or she will be anything more than a wage worker. What excuse can be given for voting to perpetuate a system — and both the Democrats and Republicans stand for the same — by voting for a system under which you are robbed and impoverished and enslaved, and servitude imposed? The existing capitalist economic system is the system they are pledged to preserve and perpetuate and which the World Socialist Party is pledged to abolish. Corporations are organized purely for private profit; the rights of the corporations to exploit the working class and exact tribute from the people are to be respected, according to both the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates. The Republican and Democratic parties are in favor of the private ownership of the means of production and distribution. they are in favor of the existing wage system. There is absolutely no difference between them. The World Socialist Party, stands for the common ownership of the means of production, and declares to the world that there is no other solution of this economic problem. We hold the vision of a land without a master, a land without a slave.
