    Barack Obama's Relationship To The DSA
    The New Zeal blog has 19 links to articles it has produced about Barack Obama's long term association with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

    Snip:

    So what you say -- they're "democratic" aren't they? They're only "socialists, not communists or militant radicals?

    Some facts:

    Obama has close personal and political ties to several DSA members including Quentin Young, Timuel Black, the late Rabbi Arnold Jacob Wolf, the late Saul Mendelson, Lou Pardo, Congressman Danny Davis and DSA honorees Jackie Grimshaw, Jackie Kendall and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky.

    DSA's several thousand strong membership has grown increasingly militant over the years until the point its policies are almost indistinguishable from those of the Communist Party USA. In an article in DSA's Democratic Left, Spring 2007, DSA National Political Committee member David Green wrote;

    Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production. Our immediate task is to limit the capitalist class’s prerogatives in the workplace...

    In the short run we must at least minimize the degree of exploitation of workers by capitalists. We can accomplish this by promoting full employment policies, passing local living wage laws, but most of all by increasing the union movement’s power...


    The DSA has some cross membership with the Communist Party and considerable cross-membership with the the equally militant Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism.

    Anyone with half a functioning brain knows Obama is a radical leftist who embraces socialist ideas.

    The problem is nearly half of our country doesn't care or they buy into the shit themselves.

    Two sources. Keep an open mind. Hope you visit the first link. The second link also tells you the names of 70 of our *cough-cough* representatives. :(

    Your mind is obviously so open that everything has rolled out.

    Oh, geez! get off it already!

    I'm a socialist and I'm severely disappointed with Obama. Shit! He had the perfect opportunity to socialize the entire banking industry and he didn't do it. Damn!

    Get a clue. Obama is not a socialist. Bummer.

    That he didn't pull it off doesn't mean he's not a socialist...And the losses of the Fed (y'know the nation's central bank) are already basically socialized.

    It's nothing to be proud of being a socialist. that is unless you hate the freedoms that you have as an American.
