Republicans, led by John McCain and Sarah Palin, have been hyperventilating about socialism. They’re worried that government regulation of financial markets is socialism. They’re worried that health care reform is socialism. Heck, they even call your local post office an encampment of socialism.
Of course, they call Joseph Biden and Barack Obama socialists too. Socialists? Socialists advised by Warren Buffett? Sillies, if they want to see what a real socialist presidential candidate looks like, I’ll help them out.
Check out Gloria La Riva and Eugene Puryear, the presidential and vice presidential candidates of the Party for Socialism and Liberation. That’s what real socialists look like.
Or, if they’re not to your taste, you could have Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander. They’re the presidential and vice presidential candidates of the Socialist Party of the United States of America. They’re what real socialists look like.
As a third alternative, you can go look at Roger Calero and Alyson Kennedy of the Socialist Workers Party. They’re real socialists.
Barack Obama and Joseph Biden are no socialists.
