Socialism in Amerika? Give me a break.

Workers of the world unite
NASHUA – Workers of southern New Hampshire, unite. A national socialist group, Socialist Alternative, will hold its first local meeting Saturday afternoon in the Hunt Room of the Nashua Public Library.

The meeting, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., will feature speakers from the Boston chapter of the group, and lead by organizer Daniel Keating of Nashua.

Keating grew up in Nashua, and became interested in socialism while he was serving in the military, through reading works by and about Eugene V. Debs, founder of the Industrial Workers of the World and Democratic Socialist presidential candidate in the early 1900s. Keating worked in construction after leaving the military, and is now studying to become an HVAC contractor.

He also is working to bring new life into an old political party, to represent the interests of common working people in ways that he argues the Democrats and Republicans have failed.

“We have horrible voting rates… there’s a huge disenfranchised section of the state,” Keating said. “They are sick of waiting for state and the federal government to come up with some sort of miraculous cure.”

Keating said he believes many people no longer bother to vote not out of apathy, but because the current, two-party system doesn’t represent the majority of Americans, the poor, the working and middle class.

“We’re voting for two competing elites that have their pockets stuffed with corporate dollars,” Keating said. As a society, he said, “We have the material wealth to do what we need, it’s just in the hands of a few people.”

Socialism, closely aligned with trade union, became a widespread movement in the early 1900s, but has since become almost an epithet as the nation’s political center shifted to the right. Saturday’s meeting will serve as an introduction to democratic socialism, and Keating hopes it will sow the seeds of a new political party for the region. In the long run, Keating said he hopes to field socialist candidates for local and state offices.

“We’re going to talk about what socialism is, dispel some rumors and ask and answer questions,” he said. “We’re not the Soviet Union… We’re looking for working- class, real democracy where we can control the decisions and what happens.”

Socialists support universal, single-payer health care, and locally, Keating said, he feels strongly that the City of Nashua should move ahead immediately with plans to take Pennichuck Water Works by eminent domain. “It’s our natural resource,

    (Editor note: No it’s fucking not, it belongs to the First Nation peoples your pig state stole it from)

he said, and the delays seem to just be wasting taxpayer money.

Social Alternative is not affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America, though they are closely aligned politically, Keating said.

Obviously the ‘national socialist’ group bit was a mishap by the writer, but in this case it couldn’t be more true!

This really exposes the thinking of the so-called ‘left’ in Amerika: More, more, more for Amerikans while the world’s vast majority, 85%, still continue to live on between $1 and $10 USD a day. Billions worldwide have no access to adequate shelter, water, or sanitation, and these clowns want Amerikans to vote more so that more resources can be allocated to their wasteful and unsustainable lifestyles.

The average Amerikan earns $37,500 USD annually — Socialism? Give me a break.

This article goes out of its way to claim that ‘Socialists’ support universal, single-payer health care, without even bothering to mention that any kind of thing is nothing but white privilege extended unless all peoples, worldwide, are freed from their bonds and their centuries of exploitation healed by universal Communism first.

This is exactly why socialist revolution won’t be coming to your city – Because the ‘revolutionary’ base in Amerika is comprised of national socialists and social imperialists, through and through, even though there are small cells of individuals who truly know the score.

Comrade Shubel Morgan knows exactly what kind of ‘Marxists’ these pigs are:

    while i share the underlying sentiment, it’s a mistake to say that the natural resources ‘belong’ to the native peoples. the concept of exclusive control by one group over the natural resources needed by all is incoherent and is the root cause of every social ill from time immemorial. the solution to those ills isn’t to haggle and battle for millennia over which group the resources ‘belong’ to — the solution is to deny the incoherent concept once and for all. but i suspect you agree and simply used unfortunate wording.

    • Good point of clarification comrade, I agree entirely. The wording was poor, I was trying to imply that those resources, and by extension the land itself had been stolen, as indigenous peoples had been driven off of them via a campaign of genocide with the explicit goal of controlling access to land & water.
