Socialists Heading to Democratic National Convention

Socialist Alternative will be present at rallies, discussions and protests surrounding the DNC from Saturday, July 23 to Thursday, July 28.

Kshama Sawant, Seattle’s socialist City Councilmember, will be speaking at two key events: a Socialist Alternative public meeting on the evening Sunday, July 24. The topic will be “Beyond Bernie: We Need a Party of the 99%!”

She will also be speaking at the closing plenary on Thursday evening at 5:30pm.

Along with Occupy Wall Street, Socialist Alternative is urging Sanders delegates to walk out of the DNC .

It would be fun to see some free market advocates around these events handing out flyers alerting the socialists and socialist-curious to Tom DiLorenzo's new important book, The Problem with Socialism.

This is a very important book and I will have a review up in a couple of days.

Perhaps a flyer could be passed out that reads something along these lines:

Don't Talk To Me About Socialism

Until You Have Read and Have Responses to

The Problem with Socialism by Thomas DiLorenzo

Anyone willing to handout such flyers can email me and I will act as a message point for those of you that will be in Philadelphia.



  1. I've started calling them social democrats. Progressive sounds too positive and Liberal is our word.

  2. You are far too you think these people read or even more important, would reconsider their conclusions in the face of reason? No. These people are dogmatic and want all of humanity, economics and political theory to be something they're not.
