The 2008 U.S. Presidential Contest and the Socialist Alternative
What do the New Hampshire primaries and the Iowa caucuses reveal about politics today?
What do Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards, Michael Huckabee, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Rudolph Giuliani, Ronald Paul and the other Republican and Democratic candidates actually stand for?
What is the world financial crisis that sets the stage for the elections?
The Socialist Workers Party candidates Róger Calero and Alyson Kennedy for president and vice president truthfully explain the unfolding capitalist economic crisis and its consequences for the lives, job safety, and social conditions of working people. They put forward demands to defend workers and farmers from the attempts by the bosses and their government to shift the burden of their decaying system onto the backs of working people.
Join us for this special forum to discuss these questions.
Lea Sherman, Socialist Workers candidate for U.S. Congress, 8th CD
Gerardo Sanchez, Socialist Workers candidate for U.S. Congress, 12th CD
