The Crisis, Trust and Homeowners
Capitalism cannot function any more without credit-financed debt on account of constantly increasing productivity. The recession will come because the indebtedness-dynamic can hardly be maintained with which the capitalist zombie-economy suffocating in its own productivity is kept alive in its pseudo-life.

The Alexander/Mendoza campaign calls for a real jobs program, as well as protecting public sector jobs which have been faltering since the economic crisis began. They say that spending billions of dollars on incentives for businesses doesn't get the job done - rather they call for the government to create jobs directly.

Canada and Mexico to Join U.S. in NAFTA of the Pacific
Apart from Canada and Mexico, Japan has also expressed interest in being part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The door is also open for other countries to join which is why many consider it to be a building block for an Asia-Pacific free trade zone. Another NAFTA-style agreement poses a serious threat to economic sovereignty.

In response to the Occupy Movement and its perceived threat to the status quo, Congress will vote next week on Senate Bill 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, to explicitly create a police state. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) explained that the bill will "basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield" and people can be imprisoned without charge or trial "American citizen or not." Another supporter, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), also declared that the bill is needed because "America is part of the battlefield." Write your Senator NOW!

Dependence on funders instead of people is dangerous. The problem is the system, not the republicans. We've become incapable of addressing global warming, health care etc. Crisis is an opportunity to do something, getting a government that is responsible. We have a democracy that is corrupted compared to the founder's ideas, a system that is distorted by money.

North American Integration and the Ties That Bind
When it comes to continental integration, much of the focus has shifted to greater convergence bilaterally which over time could move back to a more trilateral approach. There is an overwhelming sense that one way or another, the U.S. is going to get a North American security perimeter on their own terms, one that its NAFTA partners will have to conform to, whether they like it or not.

When Financial Management Paralyzes Democracy: 12 Theses
The 2010 Attac Bank Tribunal in Berlin was a civil society legal proceeding that decried the speculative business model: take excessive risks and burden taxpayers with the costs. Rating agencies should be public. Banks that are too big to fail are too big to exist and should be broken up. The government is complicit in bailing out banks and abandoning the real economy.

Alexander, who prides himself on his working-class background, maintains that the Socialist Party historically has been "the true representative of the Left," a point he hopes to drive home not only to disillusioned progressives, but to millions of working-class and poor Americans who have been mercilessly pummeled during the current economic crisis - a near-catastrophic downturn caused almost entirely by the recklessness and avarice of those on Wall Street and their overt enablers in the nation's capital, Democrats and Republicans alike.

Collapsing Debt Towers
The crisis is 30 years old, not three years old. The causes of the crisis should be tracked down in the real goods-producing economy, not in the financial markets. The wildly proliferating financial markets did not drag goods-producing industry to the abyss. Rather the financial markets were kept alive up to the collapse of the bubble by credit-financed demand.

Now that we are running for the Senate, they are becoming more desperate in trying to prevent us from serving our people and pursuing the politics of change.
