National Journal: socialism is still creeping

20 September 2008

Workers Paradise USA
By Randy Barrett
The National Journal

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. "We're really working on a practical, specific program to show what would be entailed in ushering in a new economic system"...

Right Time for National Conference on Labor

Stewart A. Alexander
Socialist Party Vice-Presidential Candidate
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"...

Plus, we will be conducting "write-in" campaigns in an additional ten to fifteen states.
