The great and urgent task is the building of a new political leadership that gives conscious expression to the objective development of the class struggle. The working class needs its own political party, one that begins from the understanding that the capitalist system has failed.
The rights of the working class can be secured only through its independent mobilization in a struggle for political power and the socialist reorganization of economic life. This is the perspective of the Socialist Equality Party and it informs our election campaign.
Workers and young people face a major decision, but it is not the empty choice between Obama and Romney. It is the decision to take up an active struggle for socialism. It is not enough to bemoan the political choices as they are presented by the ruling class and its political system. It is necessary to join and build the alternative—the Socialist Equality Party.
