  • There are at least two forces powering history in the U.S. now. One is the current government,by many reliable accounts broken,the other the nascent, energetic,in birth government of which the Obama government may be a symptom of,but which does not embody it totally,for it is far more community based,multi-national and multi-racial and working class dominated.
    The attending article to Socialism--sustaining and necessary,by brother David Bacon,Hundreds of union janitors fired under pressure from Feds,illustrates the unionists janitors,the working class nascent "new birth"of freedom-the Feds the poverty of government,even-though that of president Obama.
    The high hypocrisy is evident here,and spelled out in Bacon's article.
    The necessity of socialism occludes the duplicity of president Obama's government and was quite politely and tactfully not mentioned in the remarks of fraternal communist parties,complimenting and encouraging our Party at its 29th National Convention.
    Peace,democracy,jobs and the ecology of the world were however,mentioned over and over.
    Bacon's article,a kind of snapshot of the broken state of the Obama government,should not in any way discourage us,but should make it abundantly clear how needed our Party is and how necessary socialism is to the democracy and economic well-being of the working class of the U. S. and the working class of the world,destined to "Be The Human Race".
