[SDCPJ] SUNDAY 3-6 pm!! The Left and 3rd Party Politics -with Peace & Freedom Party, Green Party and PDA

"  The Left and 3rd Party Politics -
    Do we Abandon or Engage the Democratic Party?"

 

Join us for this heated discussion

Panelists include members of the Peace and Freedom Party, Green Party and PDA/Progressive Democrats of America and others TBA

 

The corporate media and our textbooks portray the "two-party system" as a centerpiece of American democracy.  Two parties, we are told, represent dramatically different agendas thus stronger democracy. 

 

Do we have a bi-partisan political monopoly? To leftist who look through the lens of a class analysis, the two parties share very similar agendas on the wars, the military budget, corporate bailouts, budget deficits, deregulating business, the diminishing of civil liberties, lax environmental regulations, etc.  Want change? How bad does it have to get?

 

Monopolizing democracy: Both Republicans and Democrats have limited democracy by creating "election laws requiring non-monopoly candidates and parties to prove they deserve to be on the ballot". To make matters worse third parties are excluded from most debates, so where is our democracy? (www.democracyisNOTfreedom.com)

 

JOIN US FOR DISCUSSION & DEBATE: Lefties & progressives & the world, we all need an effective opposition. Why do we need a 3rd party?  How do we build it?  In the meanwhile, do we trash the Democratic Party or work within it to create change within?
