LOS ANGELES, CA -President Obama is facing a massive smear campaign by right wing forces for pointing out the interconnectedness of society and how those with the most are benefiting from society. The Socialist Party USA Presidential ticket of Stewart Alexander and Alex Mendoza agree with this sentiment while, at the same time, pointing out that President Obama’s record raises questions as to whether his sentiment is genuine.
“It is not a Marxist idea nor a socialist idea that members of society support one another,” explains Alexander. “Even Adam Smith said, ‘We shall be sensible that without the assistance and co-operation of many thousands, the very meanest person in a civilized country could not be provided, […] the easy and simple manner in which he is commonly accommodated.’ Only a sociopath could deny it though capitalism does its best to ignore it.”
