Preamble ( just some snipets)

In the United States, the rise of global capitalism has been accompanied by the increasing strength of conservative and corporate elites and the weakening of social movements and trade unions that have historically been the backbone of mass liberalism. As a result, many socialists and progressives have come to question the tactics and policies that have long comprised the political program of the Left.
DSA has been in the forefront of this necessary reevaluation of Left strategy and program. For five years, DSA has been engaged in a thoroughgoing discussion of a renewed mission and vision for today's world. No old assumption has been too sacred to be scrutinized, and no new idea has been too provocative to be easily dismissed. Since DSA is a pluralist organization, no single document can adequately and equally reflect our diverse perspectives. But, at the end of our five year evaluation, we have established a political center of gravity to ground these diverse views. This is where we stand:
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.

Section 1: Democracy, Liberty and Solidarity

Section 2: Democratic Control of Production and Social Life
The Capitalist Marketplace
Vision of a Socialist Economy
Interactions of Economy and Society

Section 3: The Global Economy, Global Politics and the State
The Global Economy
Global Environment
Global Politics

Section 4: A Strategy for the Next Left
( this section discusses "1.massive redistribution of income "

Section 5: The Role of Electoral Politics

Section 6: The Role of Democratic Socialists


Wild Thing's comment........

This should be run in National ads across America, but of course that won't happen.

I also bet there are more Senate members than are listed.

Don't you just love how they use the term, “honorable” in front of their names. There isn’t anything honorable about these American haters in Congress!

I noticed too how much of their list is exactly what Obama has been doing.

Cream de la Crap the DSA. Almost everybody in the white house has belonged of has joined this commie organization at one time or another. Elena Kagan the new Supreme Court justice is a member and was told to mentor obama. Hence, one of his anti-American choices to SCOTUS.

If we succeed in taking the country back all of these left wing groups will again fly under the radar again.

Mark, good way to put it, "Cream de la Crap the DSA".

Tom, what a difference it would be if the media was on the side of America instead of socialists. These people would never get elected.
