    How do the F.S.P. folks differ from the national socialists in Germany in 1933-1945 or the soviet socialists in the U.S.S.R. in 1917-1991 ???

    I.E. – what does *socialist* mean in 2012 ???

    Something magically new and different ???

  2. Interesting that they’re not at least seeking ballot access in the easy states like Colorado and Tennessee.

  3. Response to Demo Rep:

    What does “socialist” mean in 2012? In a nutshell, it means advocating a society in which the 99% exercise real democratic control of a social system that guarantees our rights and provides healthcare, education and other fundamental human needs to all, rather than the current capitalist system in which we are perpetually ripped off and run over by the class of the owners and profiteers. Have you checked out the link to http://www.socialism.com? The FSP program has real, workingclass—and workable!—solutions to offer to the economic crisis and the ever growing-inequity and injustice of the status quo.
