No billionaire or millionaire can represent the working-class, whether they are Democrats or Republicans. The Democrat-Republican parties are the twin capitalist parties of war and fascism, helping the billionaires and millionaires maximize their profits, the primary goal of the bankrupt social order in which we live, capitalism. The only parties that are pro-labor are Peace & Freedom and the Green Party. You can register online for either one of these 2 pro-labor parties at https://covr.sos.ca.gov/?language=en-US
