Post-election interview with Brian Moore by Tulane University student

12 December 2008

"What were the main objectives of the SPUSA and Brian Moore in the 2008 campaign? Do you feel that the 2008 campaign was successful?

To promote the Socialist principles and platform; to encourage the populace not to be afraid of our political party that has a rich heritage in our country and which makes up the social fabric of our society today (i.e. child labor laws, women's suffrage, collective bargaining, 40-hour work weeks, workers compensation, social security, unemployment insurance, etc.). Also, to encourage membership in our party and to encourage others to run for political office on our party's behalf.

Other objectives were to raise issues and positions not addressed out of fear by the two major party candidates (end the Iraq war immediately, promote a socialized health system for all citizens and residents as an economic right, nationalize all for-profit corporations and the banks and institutions; object to the federal bailout; advocate full employment, housing and education; oppose nuclear power, militarily and commercially; reduce the defense budget in half; impeach Bush and Cheney, etc.; eliminate all intelligence agencies; promote a radical systemic economic system change)!

A final objective is to offer all Americans an alternative choice of candidates to provide them a vehicle to adequately express their protest of the system and support for new and radical ideas and for real deep change, not a superficial tinkering of reforming a broken economic and political system..."

Post-election interview with Brian Moore by The Modern Left

26 November 2008

"Why Socialism? Can you explain for those who aren't familiar with the platform you ran on?

Brian Moore: Because we want to achieve a radical systemic change of economic systems that will better serve the common good, and bring a more egalitarian and quality life than under capitalism. Under capitalism, only a small elite of owners, senior company officers and investors reap the rewards and profits, and they do it on the backs of the common every day worker. They do not share the benefits with those who have worked the most..."

Socialists Expecting Business-as-Usual from President-Elect Obama

A Statement by Stewart Alexander, 2008 Socialist Party Candidate for Vice President of the United States

18 November 2008

It has been two weeks since a majority of Americans went to the polls to cast their votes electing Barack Obama to be the next President of the United States. However, socialists nationwide are not joining the celebrations; socialists believe Obama's victory is only a win for the capitalist ruling class and a setback for working class people.

Beyond the tidal wave of liberal Obama fanfare that has engulf much of the nation, Obama's election only represents a changing of the guard to usher in a new administrator for the capitalist ruling elite. As a result of his election Barack Obama is now beholden to big business and the corporate contributors that paid his way to victory...

How Obama survived the smears

12 November 2008

By Philippe Gohier

"A week before Americans cast their votes, Brian Moore, the Socialist Party's nominee for the White House, was on the Colbert Report discussing Obama's candidacy. "He's a [capitalist]," Moore complained of his Democratic rival. "His party is a capitalist party and he's propping up the capitalist system with the bailout." Communists, socialists and the rest of the normally splintered far left all seemed to agree: Obama is not one us..."

If you enjoy your freedom, thank a protester; thank a dissident, because dissent protects democracy. Be it a stingy two-party democracy, it is still better than a really stingy one party totalitarian state. False patriotism, flag waiving and unquestioningly supporting your government is not defending freedom, it's opening doors for fascist minded folks to eliminate our freedoms right from under our collective nose.

Obama is a Socialist? Another "Known-Unknown"

25 October 2008

By William Wharton
Dissident Voice

"Ever desperate, John McCain has lately taken up an attempt to re-brand Barack Obama from blue to red. Obama, it seems, is a stealth "socialist." Or, so says Sarah Palin, or Joe the Plumber, or John McCain, or was that Bill O'Reilly? Remember now we are talking about a political crowd dedicated to "preemptive war" - they know something when they do not see it. Or, as Don Rumsfeld so eloquently termed it, Barack Obama being a socialist is a "known unknown."

Unfortunately for the McCain campaign, a large chunk of the American electorate, despite eight years of presidential idiocy, has managed to retain some amount of rational reasoning. By any reasonable measure Obama is far from a socialist. Let's look at three..."

"Barack Obama and John McCain have been called socialists for their support of the bailout. But Moore, the Socialist Party USA's presidential nominee, really is one, and his feelings are hurt.

With all the accusations of socialism flying around, it seemed like a good time to check in with Brian Moore, the Socialist Party USA presidential nominee. As Moore himself observed, socialism has been in the news more in the past few weeks "than anytime since 1932." Over the course of two recent afternoons, I conducted a hard-hitting phone interview with the 65-year-old candidate who spoke to me from his home in Tampa, Florida, and from the Fox News green room, where he was preparing to tape one of his recent Neil Cavuto interviews.

I urge all of our Socialist Party members to get out and vote, early, if possible, to avoid any problems on election day.

Voting on principle, instead of for power, is our all-important obligation, and that principle is for a radical systemic change in our economic system.

Send a message, loud and clear, that you are not happy with the status quo, nor with our present destructive capitalistic economic system, and that the two mainstream political parties are not offering any choices for the American people.

Your voice is important, especially in showing that alternative radical ideas and the socialistic economic system, which favor workers and average citizens, and promotes real democracy, have to take precedence now more than ever...

It turns out that socialism is still creeping. This week, American taxpayers purchased an 80 percent stake in insurance giant American International Group for $85 billion while still digesting the government takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the March bailout of Bear Stearns.

Bad news, right? Not for Brian Moore, Socialist Party USA candidate for president. "I think this certainly helps the cause," he said. Moore, who is on the ballot in eight states, is devising a master schedule for the nationalization of American industry.

Right Time for National Conference on Labor

Friday, 5 September 2008


In June 2008, Steve Zeltzer, a labor organizer and a political consultant, approached Alexander with a proposal to organize a national conference on labor; bringing together working class activist, working class political tendencies and those who want a socialist national alternative. Alexander quickly embraced Zeltzer's idea and has been working with Zeltzer to implement his proposal.

Alexander believes that working people are ready for a socialist alternative. Alexander says, many working people are in the same situation as he and his mother; "working people are taking hits from all directions; shrinking wages, unemployment, unaffordable housing, unaffordable health care cost, high food prices, high fuel prices, loss of benefits, and a two party system that only caters to the corporate ruling class"...

Alexander wants $300 Billion for Automakers

Stewart A. Alexander
Socialist Party Vice-Presidential Candidate
Tuesday, 26 August 2008

The Big Three U.S. automakers recently announced plans to seek $25 billion in federal loans that will help bailout the struggling automobile industry as declining sales continues to rack up record losses on a battered industry. The Detroit Free Press reported this month that executives at GM, Ford and Chrysler met and agreed that they would need about $40 billion to ride out their current troubles. Vice Presidential Candidate, Stewart A. Alexander, says "much more is needed or nothing." Stewart Alexander is convinced that $25 billion will only provide a temporary fix.

Alexander has proposed a long term, comprehensive program that will require the investment of $300 billion over the next decade; Alexander's plan would also call for a major restructure of the U.S. automobile industry. Under his plan, the U.S. government would nationalize the U.S. oil industry, the ethanol industry, and the automobile industry. Over a period of 10 years, the U.S. government would invest $300 billion into the automobile industry manufacturing fuel efficient vehicles and electric cars; expanding the industry to all areas of the U.S, to include more rural areas...

After filing the necessary paperwork work with the Washtenaw County Clerk's office following the Nominating Caucus last week, Erard's name was added to the General Election Candidate Listing on Michigan Secretary of State's website yesterday as the first Green Party candidate to qualify for the November General Election ballot...

Socialist Party Presidential Candidate
July 24 2008

Antiwar candidate also plans to visit bread lines, experience bus system and has requested tour and overnight stay in county jail. Brian Moore will also attend Franciscan mass and is attempting baseball workout with city's adult league.

On Friday, July 25, 2008, Socialist Party presidential candidate Brian Moore will arrive by airplane in the state of Wisconsin to initiate the Socialist Party's ballot access petition drive at its annual picnic at Kern Park #1 on Saturday, July 26th, from 12 noon to 4 PM, in Milwaukee.

The presidential candidate also will visit the bread lines at St. Benedict the Moor church either Friday or Saturday evening around 5 PM, (9th Street) and he will travel the Milwaukee bus system in light of its recent cutbacks and the high gas prices and souring economy.

Moore has also faxed county sheriff David A. Clarke requesting a tour of the penal facilities with an extraordinary request to stay overnight in the facility as well. The candidate slept overnight in Lorton prison in 1986 when he ran against then DC Mayor Marian Barry, whose jurisdiction used the federal penal facilities in Lorton, VA.

Moore, a former Franciscan seminarian, in an order dedicated to serving the poor, plans to attend early Saturday or Sunday morning Mass as an integral part of his common good philosophy. And finally, Moore has e-mailed the Milwaukee Adult Baseball League, requesting an opportunity to practice with a team Saturday morning or evening, depending on a team's schedule. Moore, a former college baseball player, is a left-handed first baseman and bats left-handed as well.

New Hampshire Denies Socialist Ballot Due to "Trap" Law to Ambush 3rd Parties

Spring Hill, Florida: Colorado's Deputy Director of Elections, Wayne Munster, confirmed today by e-mail to Socialist Party Presidential candidate Brian Moore, that Moore and his Vice-Presidential running mate, Stewart Alexander, "will be on the Colorado General Election ballot."

This was a far cry from Moore's experience in New Hampshire this week when he was denied ballot access on Wednesday by the Secretary of State's office despite a presidential candidate petition deadline of August 6th. New Hampshire is one of few states in the union that require one deadline for signatures and another small requirement to register to apply for candidacy two months ahead of time (by Monday, June 13, 2008). Moore accused the state of using a "trap" law by deceiving candidates with two deadlines...

Brian Moore
2008 Socialist Party Presidential Candidate
May 14 2008

Several weeks ago the Moore / Alexander '08 campaign extended written invitations to other presidential candidates (Ralph Nader (Independent), Cynthia McKinney (Green Party), and Dr. Chuck Baldwin (Constitution Party Nominee) to participate in several planned community television debates in Florida, as well as to organize a tour of debates together in select regions of the country.

We have heard from the McKinney and Baldwin campaigns, but so far nothing from the Nader campaign. Ironically, Mr. Nader reported on his website yesterday (May 13) of his own expected debate with Barack Obama based on the Democrat's response to Tim Russert's question in a May 4th interview, stating that he was willing to debate with "any of my opponents about what this country means, what makes it great... in order to further the country's interest."

Thus, we are assuming that Mr. Nader will feel the same way about our earlier invitation for alternative presidential candidates to debate each other; or, better yet, to participate with Mr. Nader in his expected invite to debate Mr. Obama.

Socialist Dwain Reynolds for Michigan State Board of Education

Dwain Reynolds
Socialist Party candidate for State Board of Education (Michigan)
23 April 2008

Middleville, MI -- Socialist Dwain Reynolds III announced his candidacy today to run for Michigan's State Board of Education. Reynolds has spent the last few months traveling throughout Michigan in preparation for his campaign. "I have talked to countless residents of our "forgotten state" and have learned many things. Most of all I have learned that the residents of Michigan (students, parents, employers, employees, etc...) are ready for a progressive change. Ready for new ideas; geared up for their children to finally have what they deserve from their government. Continuously I see students and young adults who have lost hope and are now prepared to believe that things can progress for the better. They know that they are not represented in current mainstream politics (as well as the rest of the working class, middle class, working poor) and are ready to have someone who cares about their welfare standing up for them as well as their parents, teachers, and friends. People are no longer saying "I hope things will get better" instead they have replaced it with "things will be better and we're going to make sure of it before it's too late". These people are the reason I am running; the reason I have hope for a better tomorrow"...

Erard ran as a Socialist for the same office for the first time in the previous election in 2006. Due to the Socialist Party's lack of ballot access in Michigan, Erard was forced to appear on the 2006 ballot as a candidate with "No Party Affiliation" and was the first candidate for that office to qualify for the general election ballot by petition since 1984. Although not victorious in the last election, Erard received eight-hundred and forty-seven votes from Ann Arbor voters...

The group encircled a pamphlet-covered coffee table to discuss the anti-war movement, International Women's Day, universal healthcare, this year's presidential election and how to expand the party's modest base (as of 2006, there were 176 registered Socialist voters in Massachusetts)..."

A True Peace Candidate for Congress

Todd Vachon
Socialist Party candidate for United States Congress
(Connecticut, district 2)
1 February 2008

Socialist Party congressional candidate Todd Vachon (CT Second District) has been gaining some recognition from online peace activists. He was recently selected by as a "true peace candidate for congress", and has also been highlighted on as a hip-hop activist and candidate for peace.

Since the Democrats have done little to nothing to bring an end to the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan the minor party candidates are really gaining traction on this issue. Could this be the year of a critical mass? If enough people vote for what they really want and not just the "less of two evils" we might see some actual progress.

Freedom Socialist Party Endorses SP-USA Candidates in PFP Primary

27 January 2008

In an open letter to their supporters on 26 January, the Los Angeles branch of the Freedom Socialist Party endorsed both Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander for the Peace and Freedom presidential primary on 5 Feburary, and called on people to register and vote Peace and Freedom in order to keep "a socialist alternative at the polls". The FSP argues for a vote for either Brian Moore or Stewart Alexander on the basis that they "support an immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq, full amnesty for undocumented immigrants, a $15 per hour minimum wage, healthcare for all, abortion rights, same-sex marriage, and steps toward a socialist economy". Specifically, the letter highlights voting for Alexander, though votes for either Brian or Stewart will help get the ticket on the ballot in California.

The Freedom Socialist Party is a Trotskyist and socialist-feminist political party based out of Seattle. In the past they have run their own candidates, as well as endorsing candidates of other socialist parties that they feel are most in line with their principles and goals. In addition to Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander, the FSP have also recommended voting for Gloria La Riva of the Party for Socialism and Liberation in the PFP primary.

Socialist Presidential Ticket on Ballot in Vermont

22 January 2008

The Socialist Party presidential ticket of Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander gained ballot access in its first state on Monday, 21 January, when campaign volunteers in Vermont submitted more than 1,100 signatures to get Moore in the Liberty Union Party's presidential primary. Moore will be the only candidate competing for the Liberty Union Party's nomination. Since the primary election is binding, this guarantees that he and Alexander will appear as the Liberty Union ticket in the November general election.

The Liberty Union Party is a nonviolent socialist party in Vermont, which shares a number of members with the Socialist Party, and nominated the SP presidential tickets in 1980, 1988, 1996 and 2000.

Although Vermont is the first state where socialist ballot access has been officially confirmed, ballot access efforts are underway in several other states. The Moore/Alexander campaign hopes to gain ballot access in approximately twenty states where barriers are not too steep. Contact the campaign at or the Socialist Party's Campaign Clearinghouse at for more information about ballot access in your area.

Democratic Process Not So Easy For Minor Party Candidate Moore -- Several Miles from New Hampshire Border Where Major Party Candidates Campaign Effortlessly

Spring Hill, Florida -- Socialist Party USA Presidential Nominee Brian Moore was threatened with arrest Sunday afternoon by Brattleboro (Vermont) Police officers for petitioning in a supermarket parking lot to qualify on the presidential primary ballot of the Liberty Union Party of Vermont. The primary is scheduled for March 5th.

The manager of Hannaford Supermarkets in Brattleboro repeatedly ordered Moore, in a hostile voice, to leave the large mall parking lot because it was private property and owned by the store. Moore and his three colleagues stood their ground and refused to leave claiming they had a constitutional right to participate in a democratic process in a public area so that he could be a qualified presidential candidate in Vermont...
