The Black Panther Party is a political party established to create revolutionary political power for Black People and is continuing steadily to serve the People heart and soul. . . Our Cardinal Rule is:
"Have faith in the People, and faith in the Party." This faith derives from an undying love for our people and the awareness of a need for governmental eclipse. We, as the vanguard of the oppressed masses, realize that we must and will serve the People heart and soul. The need and wants of the People must be fulfilled, and we, as Huey P. Newton says, shall be like an oxen to be ridden by the People. The exploited and oppressed people's needs are land, bread, housing, education, freedom, clothing, justice and peace and the Black Panther Party shall not, for a single day, alienate ourselves from the masses and forget their needs for survival, but instead institute to the People faith to the death.
"I'd rather be without the shame,It is only the People that can overthrow the present imperialistic environment that we are exposed to and only the People can institute a socialistic government that will serve them. The spirit of the People is greater than the man's technology, and that spirit will be guided by the vanguard party of this present liberation struggle.
A bullet lodged within my brain.
If I were not to reach our goal
Let bleeding cancer torment my soul."
The capitalistic, imperialistic, doggish, pimping of the People must cease by this wanton, sadistic country or perish like Babylon. The People shall smash the glutton roaches running this decadent society and, along with the directing of the Black Panther Party, halt these running dogs and gain true liberation for all. We cannot depend upon the present government to fulfill our wants and needs. Thus more and more programs shall be set up to suffice the desires of the People and destroy the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie (ruling class) and its lackeys.
The Black Panther Party is for everything that the enemy (U. S. imperialists) is against, and against everything the enemy is for. We believe in serving the People whole-heartedly in a socialistic manner, not spending money like the U. S. to take hung er surveys, but to feed the People. All our actions are to the exact opposite of this hypocrisy called democracy. The Black Panther Party will continue to serve the people and fulfill their every desire as an International united front of revolutionarie s of the world, battling this mass oppression of capitalism and imperialism.
When people call in to say they need food, we do not spout a lot of superficial rhetoric, but see that they are fed.
"Our duty is to hold ourselves responsible to the People. Every word, every act, and every policy must conform to the People's interest and, if mistakes occur, they must be corrected -- that is what being responsible to the People means. ---Mao Tse-tung
