  • Immediately terminate participation in international trade agreements such as NAFTA and the WTO, and stop sending high paying American jobs to foreign countries;
  • Reduce immigration, and stop all government subsidies to illegal aliens;
  • Defend America's moral values; keep God in the pledge of allegiance;
  • Protect the right to life of the innocent unborn;
  • Support high standards in education, including encouragement of private schools and home schooling;
  • Stop the rape of consumers and taxpayers by the energy/utility monopolies;
  • Defend Second Amendment rights;
  • Restore a debt-free, interest-free money system;

Democratic Party

Democratic Party

The United States Government, especially a President, has two major responsibilities…..the Economy and National Security.

Only a new Democratic President will make our country stronger in both areas.

Democrats have:

  • Supported teachers and improved public education resulting in higher test scores
  • Passed tough laws to keep assault weapons and Saturday Night Specials out of our neighborhoods and schools
  • Passed HMO reform that gives health care decisions to patients and their doctors
  • Led efforts to protect taxpayers and our pension funds from fraudulent corporate crooks

We need to re-elect Senator Barbara Boxer and support our Congressional and State Legislative candidates so they can keep on fighting to:

  • Protect a woman’s right to choose
  • Reduce violent crimes in our neighborhoods and schools
  • Protect Social Security and Medicare and add prescription drug coverage
  • Help small businesses and pass balanced budgets
  • Protect our environment
  • End hate crimes

Democrats and Independents should contact us to build a greater California. We are the only party to invite Independents to vote in our Presidential primary.

Libertarian Party

The Libertarian Party is as American as apple pie.

Like you, we have jobs, businesses, families and dreams.

We’ve entered the political arena to restore liberty and American values. We’re working toward a government that taxes and spends less, and won’t interfere with your personal life.

If you describe yourself as socially tolerant and fiscally responsible, you’re a Libertarian!

We believe you-not the government-should decide how to run your life, checkbook, retirement, education and family.

The Libertarian Party supports your right to:

  • keep what you earn. Reduce or eliminate taxes whenever possible.
  • run your own business and enjoy your property. Reducing regulations and paperwork creates more jobs, higher pay, and lower prices.
  • Educate your children as you see fit.
  • Choose your own lifestyle. The government shouldn’t consider you a criminal because of your choices in relationships, recreation or medical treatment.
  • Truly equal treatment under the law regardless of race, gender, religion, sexuality, or personal characteristics.
  • own a firearm. Self-defense is a right, not a political favor.

With over 60 elected Libertarians in California and over 525 officeholders countrywide, we’re a real and growing choice.

Peace and Freedom Party

Peace and Freedom Party

You can vote for the rights and needs of working-class people in California and throughout the world.

Vote for meaningful work for all; double the minimum wage. End poverty and homelessness.

Vote for free, quality health care and education for all.

Vote to tax the rich to meet human needs.

Vote for complete protection and restoration of our environment.

Vote to let people throughout the world determine how to govern themselves. Bring home all U.S. troops and fire all agents who are sent to promote and protect corporate profits. End all foreign military aid.

Vote to end discrimination against all oppressed groups, making it possible for all to participate democratically and share equally.

Capitalism uses our labor and natural resources to create profit for a few. It causes war, environmental destruction, poverty, and inequality.

We working-class people need our own party. We can’t expect parties controlled by corporations and the rich to act in our interests.

If we work together, we can change the system. We can create a socialist society in which we democratically and cooperatively use nature’s resources, our labor and our social wealth for the common good.

Register and vote Peace and Freedom Party.

Republican Party

Republican Party

The California Republican Party seeks to restore our state as the nation's leader in economic growth and innovation by cutting taxes, slashing wasteful regulations, and making California competitive again. We want to build a California where people and families are safe and secure because a vibrant economy is creating jobs and opportunities for everyone who is willing and able to work.

Republicans support boldly reforming our bloated and wasteful government and reducing the burden on taxpayers to grow our economy and generate the jobs and opportunities families need.

The Republican Party is the advocate for everyday Californians - not the special interests or big government. We support protecting every Californian's personal freedoms and opportunities to have a quality education, to work, to save and to invest in one's future, and in one's family.

Our democracy only works if good people decide to step up and get involved. Our doors are open to you and we hope you will make the personal decision today to protect, improve and build California by joining the California Republican Party. You can learn more by visiting our website at today.
