Perspectives for the U.S. Revolution 2007 - The U.S. Political Situation

All of the above is having a profound effect on the consciousness of the U.S. working class, and by extension, on the political situation in the country. Discontent is mounting and there is tremendous potential for working people to express their aspirations politically.  However, there is as of yet no genuine mass political alternative for American workers. Both the Republicans and the Democrats are parties of the capitalist class, and no matter which party is in power, defending the capitalists’ interests will be their top priority.  In the 2008 Presidential elections, we will once again be faced with a “lesser evil” campaign between two representatives of the ruling class.
