Communist View of Democrat Party Before 2010 Election

| Tuesday, February 15, 2011 | |
Resolution on the November 2, 2010 midterm election — "All hands on deck to defend and extend our gains"

...therefore be it Resolved, That the Communist Party USA is committed to joining in the broad all-peoples' coalition to defeat the ultra-right in the mid-term elections and help elect more pro-people, pro-labor, pro-immigrant rights, pro-peace candidates including members of our own Party running for election or reelection.

That voter education on life-and-death issues of jobs, health care, and preserving the homes of millions from foreclosure will be key to victory. The Party should produce our own "People Before Profits" election platform for mass circulation.

That we will join or, when necessary, initiate voter registration drives to enroll new voters.

That we urge Districts, Clubs, and Party members to volunteer to phonebank, go door-to-door, travel to battleground states. That victory depends above all on an effective "get-out-the-vote" campaign in the lead up to the election and on election day, November 2. That this mobilization needs "street heat" to fire up the people.

That our clubs participate in the 2010 elections through coalition work that builds a solid base for the struggle after the elections. Clubs should target organizations and key neighborhoods for signing up readers to the People's World/Mundo Popular and new Party recruits strengthening both the CPUSA and the unity and action of the people's movements.
