    The 'New Party' was a political party established by the Democratic Socialists of America.

    Web pages that had been scrubbed from the New Party's website were archived by the non-profit Internet Archive Organization.

    The deleted web page that identifies Obama as a member and the status of his race for the Illinois Senate is here

    There is also a recognition by the "Progressive Populist" magazine in November 1996 that Obama was indeed an acknowledged member of the Socialist Party. Link here

    Is this a scam? Is it true? I don't know. Anyone with firsthand knowledge of this should step forward.

    A better question is: Does it matter?

    Who is more 'socialist', the candidate who studied socialism or the president who touts free enterprise while rushing bills through congress, nationalizing a few banks and one big-ass insurance company?

    “ 1. From the nineteenth century onwards, Capitalism has developed immense productive forces. It has done so at the cost of excluding the great majority of citizens from influence over production. It put the rights of ownership before the rights of Man. It created a new class of wage-earners without property or social rights. It sharpened the struggle between the classes.
    Although the world contains resources, which could be made to provide a decent life for everyone, Capitalism has been incapable of satisfying the elementary needs of the world’s population. It proved unable to function without devastating crises and mass unemployment. It produced social insecurity and glaring contrasts between rich and poor. It resorted to imperialist expansion and colonial exploitation, thus making conflicts, between nations and races, more bitter. In some countries, powerful capitalist groups helped the barbarism of the past to raise its head again in the form of Fascism and Nazism.

    From Newsbusters:

    Will MSM Report on Obama Membership in Socialist New Party?

    The mainstream media thought that the membership of Todd Palin, who is not a candidate for any office, in the Alaska Independence Party important enough to report in such outlets as the Los Angeles Times, MSNBC, and the New York Times, among others. So now that Barack Obama's membership in the far left New Party has been unearthed, will they report his membership in that Socialist organization?

    Proof of Obama's membership in the New Party was discovered by the Politically Drunk On Power blog:

    I think the American people already know Obama and McCain support socialism considering they both touted the necessity of and voted for the bailout bill.
