May Day Cinco de Mayo Greetings

"Are you tired of ... The Contract on America. Worrying about health care. The destruction of our environment. Longer hours, less pay, and fewer jobs at livable wages. Racism that divides us. Vicious attacks on the poor, seniors and children. We are committed to a socialist future that insures: Quality, affordable health care for all. Protection for our environment. Full employment at livable wages. Free public education. An end to all forms of discrimination."
