Socialists in U.S.Congress

Despite its name, DSA is not “democratic” in the traditional American sense.The organisation is a several thousand strong alliance of Marxists, anarchists, former communists, Trotskyists and student radicals-dedicated to the socialist transformation of American society.

DSA has close ties and some cross membership with both the
Communist Party USA and the CPUSA offshoot Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism-both of wich also supported Obama.

“The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist
organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of
the Socialist International (also in Francais and Espanol). DSA’s
members are building progressive movements for social change while
establishing an openly socialist presence in American communities
and politics

Many DSA members have ties to Castro’s Cuba, Chavez’s Venezuela
and Mexico’s Zapatista rebels.

“The Progressive Caucus of the US House of Representatives is made
up of 58 members of the House. The Caucus works to advance
economic and social justice through sponsoring legislation that reflects
its purpose. The Caucus also works with a coalition of organizations,
called the Progressive Challenge, to bring new life to the progressive
voice in US politics.”
