3 Days to Vote: Yes on 19, 21, 24, 25, Peace & Freedom or Green

by GOTV Monday, Nov. 01, 2010 at 12:14 PM

As the World Socialist Website states below, there is a right-wing consensus in the governor's race between the Democrats and Republicans, one capitalist party with millionaire candidates. You can break that fascist attack on the workingclass by voting Peace & Freedom or Green and Yes on 19, 21, 24 and 25.

As the World Socialist Website states below, there is a right-wing consensus in the governor's race between the Democrats and Republicans, one capitalist party with millionaire candidates. You can break that fascist attack on the workingclass by voting Peace & Freedom or Green and Yes on 19, 21, 24 and 25.

From: “Right-wing consensus in California gubernatorial elections,” By Kevin Kearney,

22 October 2010

“For his part, Brown has called Whitman out for exempting police and firefighters from her pension reform. Brown instead calls for pension-slashing across the board. In his 8-page plan for California, Brown states, “The current pension system costs too much and needs to be changed. We have to be realistic about what the state can afford…” More generally, he says he will “Review and cut wasteful spending for all state agencies”.”

“According to Brown’s plan, “Fixing government is not simply about cutting state employees or expenses” but it should also include an effort to cut regulations for big business.”

“Brown reiterated these positions repeatedly during the debates. On pensions, he said he would “raise ages, raise contributions” like Whitman and negotiate with public employee unions to make more desired cuts. Brown has boasted, “When it comes to unions: I’m the only governor who ever vetoed the pay raises for all public employees. I did it once, I did it twice, and I’ll do it again.” He asserted, “No one is tougher with a buck than I am.””

‘When asked if he would roll back the fees for university students that have made the cost of education “astronomical” (in Brown’s words) he said “no”. When asked if he would promise to freeze fees where they are, he gave the same response.’”

‘On the issue of immigration, Brown boasted of initiating the invasive “Secure Communities” program, which attempts to collect identifying information (fingerprints) for all immigrants in the country and compile it in a database. He said, “If they are found to be here illegally, they get deported.” He also mentioned that, “Workplace inspections are part of the solution.”

“‘When confronted with the death penalty, Brown again reveled in his right-wing record saying, “I’ve defended literally hundreds and hundreds of executions.” His website also claims it will free up money by challenging the judicial intervention into the state’s decaying prison healthcare system by simply refusing to make the court ordered changes. As Governor, Brown passed the first determinate sentencing law in 1977, which is considered the first step in the move to draconian measures underlying the state’s massive incarcerated population.”


We have weekend voting 2 weekends before election day on absentee ballots, Saturday and Sunday, in many counties in California, especially San Francisco, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the County Registrar's office. If you have already completed your absentee ballot, you can walk it to the County Registrar's office or to any polling place in your county on election day. It is too late to mail any ballot. Please take the time to read the information below and read your 2 booklets, one from the state and one from your County Registrar. Your polling place is listed on the back of your County booklet by your address.

Statewide information:

The only two parties worth considering are:

Peace and Freedom Party at

Green Party at



To vote Peace & Freedom or Green is to vote for peace, labor, civil rights, gay marriage, socialized medicine, free abortion on demand with no restrictions, for abolition of the death penalty, for the Palestinian liberation struggle, for free public school education for all from pre-school through university, for amnesty for undocumented immigrants and for the environment.

You cannot expect to have progress if you keep voting for the twin parties of war and fascism, the Democrat-Republicans. The Democratic candidate for governor, Jerry Brown, not only opposes Prop 19 legalizing marijuana, supports a peripheral canal to drain Northern California of our water, and supports continued attacks on the workingclass in the form of budget cuts, he also supported a charter military school while mayor of Oakland (1999-2007). Charter schools are by definition anti-labor and do not solve the problems of education in the workingclass schools. Military and education are antithetical and the same is true for military and culture. Only with peace can we have culture and a well-rounded education. See

He also was mayor of Oakland (1999-2007) when he sent the Oakland police against the peace demonstrators at the Oakland docks who shot the peaceniks with wooden and rubber bullets on April 7, 2003.


He is just as reactionary as the Republican candidate for governor and fellow millionaire, Meg Whitman. NO MILLIONAIRE CAN REPRESENT THE WORKINGCLASS, the 80% of us who sell our labor for less than ,000 a year.
