In Debate: A Socialist’s Case for Howie Hawkins

As part of our ongoing analysis of the U.S. Green Party, guest writer John Palmucci offers a counter to Ezra Brain’s Left Voice article: “A Socialist Case Against Howie Hawkins and the Green Party.” Palmucci argues that most criticisms of the Green Party do not apply to its presidential candidate, Howie Hawkins and that socialists should have no qualms with voting for him.

A Socialist Case Against Howie Hawkins and the Green Party

Howie Hawkins, a former UPS worker, Teamster and a committed leftist, is the presidential candidate of the Green Party. He promises eco-socialism — but the Green Party, even with a left candidate, is not a socialist alternative to the two parties of capital.

What Kind of Party Do We Need? Five International Examples

Since Sanders stepped out of the presidential race at the DNC, throwing full support behind Hillary Clinton, a broad range of left, socialist groups and Sanders supporters have been casting their gazes to the Green Party. A CNN poll in early August showed Stein with a projected 5 percent of the total vote, and 13 percent of the vote from would-be Sanders supporters.

For more than a few left and socialist groups, Jill Stein is being put forward as the best option come November. In this article, we return to the bare-bone idea of party and program needed to advance the interests of the workers and oppressed.
