A Weakened Trump Poses as an Alternative for the Working Class in Third Bid for President

Speaking at Mar-a-Lago a week after the failed “red wave” of the midterms, Trump made an appeal to all those spurned by neoliberalism and feeling the effects of inflation to rally behind his xenophobic, transphobic, and pro-capitalist agenda.

Democrats and Republicans Amp Up Copaganda Ahead of Midterms

Progressives in Congress Show the Limits of Working in a Capitalist Party

Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Debbie Dingell participated in a virtual recruitment drive with U.S. military academies despite Tlaib being a vocal critic of Israel and U.S. military actions in the Middle East.

The Midterm Elections and the Fight for the Working Class

Republicans and Democrats are trying to win the working class vote on Tuesday, but neither party represents workers’ interests. Socialists must take advantage of the hunger for reform and fight for independent politics and build the party we need: a working-class party with a socialist strategy.
