Recall of Gov Davis Guaranteed on Oct 7

by Historian Saturday, Aug. 09, 2003 at 4:22 AM

With the California Supreme Court's rejection on 8/7/03 of all the lawsuits attacking the recall election of 10/7/03, the recall of the worst governor in California history, Gray Davis, and the effective demise of one capitalist party in California, the Democrats, is guaranteed.

With the California Supreme Court's rejection on 8/7/03 of all the lawsuits attacking the recall election of 10/7/03, the recall of the worst governor in California history, Gray Davis, and the effective demise of one capitalist party in California, the Democrats, is guaranteed.

For constant updates on the recall legal aspects and candidates, see:

and

The same day that the California Supreme Court made possible this milestone in history, the friends of anti-labor Democrat Gray Davis, the bureaucratic misleaders of the janitors' union, shoved a sellout labor contract down the throats of the janitors of San Francisco , forcing the janitors to pay co-payments for health care for the first time in 30 years. See

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/news/archive/2003/08/07/state2102EDT0230.DTL

These labor lieutenants of capitalism sold out their union members and by supporting a governor who proudly supports the death penalty, prison concentration camps and private energy companies, they sold out the entire workingclass.

With the recall of Gray Davis, we are witnessing the long overdue effective end of one party of capitalism in California, the Democratic Party. We do not need 2 twin parties of capitalism; one is bad enough.

Peace & Freedom Party, a socialist party, promises to have candidates on the ballot, and 3 have taken out initial papers so far. See

http://www.ss.ca.gov/elections/recall_cand.htm

and

http://www.ss.ca.gov/elections/recall_cand_status.pdf

The Green Party also promises to have candidates, and one, Pete Camejo, is definitely running for governor.

So far, Camejo has not actively campaigned on the prison issue and it is the prison issue that is of greatest importance to the workingclass. The only thing the ruling class and its twin parties, the Democrats and Republicans, have to offer the workingclass is prisons, and its accompanying death penalty. The prison system is bankrupting the state and is the clearest example of how reactionary the twin parties of capitalism and capitalism at this stage are.

For more on the prison system, see:

http://www.criticalresistance.org

and

http://www.cjcj.org/cpp/index.php

The other big issue concerning the workingclass is the tax giveaway to the private utilities, carefully monitored by Harvey Rosenfeld, the author of the pro-consumer Prop 103 concerning auto insurance rates, and the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rates at

http://www.ftcr.org

or

http://www.consumerwatchdog.org

Davis' latest giveaway to the insurance companies this month is described in the press release at:

http://www.ftcr.org/insurance/pr/pr003519.php3

The energy scams are well-described at:

http://www.ftcr.org/utilities/rp/rp002193.pdf

The economy is in major crisis, causing both the major change in the janitors' union contract, and the demise of the California Democratic Party with the well-deserved recall of its proud representative, Gov. Davis.

The moment millions of us have waited for has finally arrived: The Democrats are being tossed into the dustbin of history. We must and will do the same to its twin evil, the Republican Party, for they also have absolutely nothing to offer the workingclass.

We can and must vote for the Recall of Gray Davis and the replacement of Davis with a candidate who calls for abolishing the death penalty, the prison-concentration camp system and private utility companies, and is in favor of rehabilitation and school construction instead of punishment and for public power.

We must also vote No on Prop 54, the latest scapegoating trash on the ballot, which will be on the Recall ballot.
