DeLeon for Michigan

The only real issue in this election is the private ownership of the means of production and distribution. In one word, that issue is capitalism.

My opponents will ignore this basic issue because they hate the idea of a socialist revolution. Instead they will focus on such diversionary issues as jobs, welfare, taxes, crime and spending. Despite the fact that their legislative program of reform is causing only more suffering, they persist in opposing the coming socialist revolution

Do they know that when our state was founded 160 years ago the rebel leader from South Carolina, John C. Calhoun, proclaimed it "revolutionary"?

The following photocopied handwritten note was enclosed with the leaflet mailing.


Dear Friend,

The enclosed leaflet is the fiest leaflet that DDEC published. The year was 1986. Although we made many changes to it this time, this rewrite we believe is just as good if not better than the first. The original title was "Vote for Daniel De Leon: A Socialist for Michigan" and the size of the leaflet (not the words) was twice that of the new one. In order to make it fit the smaller size paper, we had to shorten the title among othe rthings. Please let us know what you think of it.
