Pre-Election Message by Stewart Alexander

In some states, voters will be able to cast their vote to speak for the 99 percent and vote for Stewart Alexander for President and Alex Mendoza for Vice President. These voters will be on the frontline to revolt against a political system that is unfair and unjust; their votes will be a revolt against unfair ballot access laws that has rigged the entire political process to limit voter choice to the candidates of the two corporate parties.

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

We are approaching the final days before the November 2012 General Election; and one year since the SPUSA nominated Stewart Alexander and Alex Mendoza for president and vice president, the Alexander/Mendoza presidential campaign has been able to reach out to millions of working people with a message of hope for real change that is only possible in a society that is established around the principles of socialism.

The Alexander/Mendoza campaign has sought to unveil the lies of the capitalists that has given working people a false sense of hope and security that has only enslaved the minds of working people; a false sense of hope that good paying jobs will be created; a false sense of hope that education will be affordable; a false sense of hope that access to affordable healthcare is possible; a false sense of hope for affordable housing; a false sense of hope that the nation will pursue peace, not war....

Behind Closed Doors: Socialism makes return to Indiana

22 September 2012

Star Report
Indy Star (Indianapolis)

"The Socialist Party is making a run in red-dominated Indiana.

Come Election Day, though, polls indicate the color on the maps is more likely to signal Republican victories than a throwback to Red Russia ideals.

Still, presidential write-in socialist candidate Stewart Alexander officially will kick off his Midwest campaign at 10 a.m. Monday at University Park. He'll be joined by two Indiana House candidates facing strong incumbents...."

To The Nines: A lesson in politics

16 September 2012

By Roneisha Mullen
Toledo Blade (OH)

My Visit With the Mayor

11 September 2012

A Statement by John Strinka, Socialist Party Candidate for Indiana State House (39th District)

I've spent a good bit of time this summer with UNITE HERE, the union which is currently engaged in organizing the hotel workers of Indianapolis. After years of struggle, UNITE HERE has finally succeeded in garnering some public attention, and even some friends among the Democratic majority in City Council. As a result of this, the City Council passed the Freedom to Work bill, proposition 179 at their July 16th meeting, by a vote of (predictably) 16-12....

Solidarity with the Teachers’ Strike in Chicago!

11 September 2012

A Statement by Pat Noble, Socialist Party Candidate for Red Bank Regional HS Board of Education

On Monday, 26,000 teachers went on strike in Chicago, IL, many of whom took to the streets in protest of sub par working conditions and benefits. The right-wing attack on educators has been widespread, with education being a constant first stop for politicians looking to balance a budget on austerity instead of having their wealthy benefactors pay their fair share. As a student, as well as a candidate for the Red Bank Regional Board of Education, I stand in solidarity with the teachers in Chicago, who are standing up, not only for themselves, but for every teacher who receives less than they deserve....

Ohio Socialist Party Nominee for U.S. Senate in 2010 Wins Partial Court Victory Over Debate Exclusion

05 September 2012

By Richard Winger
Ballot Access News

"On September 5, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, from the District of Columbia district, issued an 18-page decision about debates. The case is La Botz v Federal Election Commission, 11-1247. It says that the FEC was wrong to have dismissed a complaint filed by the 2010 Socialist Party’s U.S. Senate candidate in Ohio, Dan La Botz. La Botz had been denied participation in the U.S. Senate candidate debates, which were restricted to only the Democratic and Republican nominees. The debates had been sponsored by a consortium of eight Ohio newspapers, which are corporations. FEC rules provide that debates sponsored by for-profit corporations may exclude some candidates, but the debate sponsors must have predetermined, objective criteria as to whom should be invited....."
