from the SPUSA Statement of Principles....

THE SOCIALIST PARTY strives to establish a radical democracy that places people's lives under their own control - a non-racist, classless, feminist socialist society.

From Their Website

" where working people own and control the means of production and distribution through democratically-controlled public agencies "

    No it is NOT their website it is a SCRIBd document of a fake blog that someone appended the entire list verbatim from the Congressional Progressive Caucus website.

    Cong. Prog Caucus list:

    http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/index.cfm?ContentID=...

    Here is the DSA website....do a search...they don't even HAVE a newsletter...and there is NOTHING on the website remotely like any of that.

    Fell for it again...

    My former congressmen Kieth Ellison is on it. Everybody knew he was a socialist already. I now live in the most conservative district of my state where Michele Bachmann will almost for certain be re elected and provide many more years of headlines.

    From Their Website

    " where working people own and control the means of production and distribution through democratically-controlled public agencies "

    Yet to you this is an insane ideal.Capitalism is killing America and the entire planet.I am a socialist, a proud socialist and yes that is what we socialist believe. I wish you knew exactly what that quote means.

    Capitalism creates governments that are in fact corporatocracies beholden only to the continuation of concentrated wealth in the hands of the few at the expense of the many.

    Consider that since 1962, federal revenue from progressive taxes (in which higher income people pay a higher tax percentage than lower income) dropped by 17%. Federal income from regressive taxes (which place a higher burden on those with lower income) increased by 135%. Since 1980, taxes on inheritance and investment have dropped by 31% while taxes on income derived from work have increased by 25%. Between 2000 and 2003, corporations (the institutions that perpetuate and insulate the plutocracy) saw their contribution to federal revenue through taxes fall by 36%. Bush's corporate tax cuts of 2002 and 2003 made this corporate wet dream possible.

    Corporations act as the primary vehicle for the plutocrats to maintain their economic tyranny over US citizens, and much of the rest of humanity. Operating with many of the legal rights of a human being, the corporation provides an ideal shield behind which the wealthy can evade personal responsibility for raping the earth, plundering the public treasury, enslaving the populace with artificially low wages, abusing human rights, and forming complex, incestuous networks with governments.

    "We are socialists because we reject an international economic order sustained by private profit, alienated labor, race and gender discrimination, environmental destruction, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo."

    "We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane international social order based both on democratic planning and market mechanisms to achieve equitable distribution of resources, meaningful work, a healthy environment, sustainable growth, gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships."

    You have a link to some random "scribd.com" that has an apparent document proportedly from their website, and then a link to their website... would you like to post a direct link to their website? What's that you say? No because you intentionally posted misinformation? Ah, I see.

    Very scary. Yes, mine is on the list. I believe the list because there is no Socialist Party any more. The Democrats have joined the Socialists. They need to get kicked out of the legislature.
