Lets Put a Socialist in the White House

You don’t often get the chance to vote for an honest-to-goodness socialist, especially one who is a
seasoned politician and proud of the “s” word.
That’s why we’re so happy that Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) has announced his candidacy
for President in 2016.

Senator Sanders is a lifelong champion of the public programs and democratic rights that empower
working class people. His candidacy will help expand both the progressive movement and the
democratic socialist voice within that movement.

DSA will help Sanders build a strong, independent movement to halt the vicious attacks of Tea Party
Republicans at all governmental levels on workers' rights, voting rights, and people of color in
general. By running in Democratic Party primaries, Independent Senator Sanders will challenge the
discourse of the dominant neoliberal capitalist wing of the Democrats that privilege corporate
business interests over those of working people. DSA believes that a strong Sanders campaign will
enable many more people to become comfortable being openly socialist in mainstream politics.

In solidarity,

Maria Svart, DSA National Director
