NEW ORLEANS, La. – The Revolutionary Communist Party USA has announced a "Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America," and members say they are planning for a "revolution" against capitalism, with violence if necessary.
The "present capitalist-imperialist system" should be replaced with a "radically new economic system," they say.
Carl Dix, a founding member and spokesman, believes that the federal government bailouts, under both George W.

His party is "building a revolution" and under the proposed constitution all "natural resources [would] be collectively owned," with the goal of a "classless, communist world," he said.
"We have to move to a point where people can work in common for the common good and get back what they need to live a life worthy of human beings. … The competitiveness and the looking out for No. 1 that's promoted in this society – that kind of thinking has to be broken," he said after the "constitution" was announced this week.
The RCP, founded in 1975 with roots in the New Left of the 1960s and 1970s era, has active chapters in at least 15 population centers and publishes "Revolution," a biweekly newspaper and website.
