RAP’s Revolutionary Agenda
While we are against plutocracy, a good question to ask is, “what are you for?” No revolution continues indefinitely. Our revolutionary agenda has two components: political equality and economic equity. While the struggle for economic equity and against excessive inequality will be eternal, our revolution will be declared a success when plutocracy has been replaced by a comprehensive, campaign finance reform bill, signed into law, that creates genuine political equality, our primary, revolutionary demand.
Plutocracy, a government of, by and for the wealthy few, will need to be addressed with three key components: 1) an amendment to the Constitution to overturn Buckley v Valeo, Citizens United v FEC and McCutcheon v FEC, leading to 2) comprehensive campaign finance reform and –independent of the first two– 3) higher taxes on the top income and investment interest earners. While we do not support economic equality, we do believe that political equality is essential for any democratic society. Political equality before the law is not just one person/one vote but also $X.00 maximum/citizen in a given election cycle. This page is intended to explain the value of X and outline these three key issues.
