Moore-Alexander Seeks PFP Presidential, V.P. Nomination

by Stewart A. Alexander Monday, Jul. 28, 2008 at 10:33 AM

The State Convention for Peace and Freedom Party will convene on Saturday, August 2 and 3 at the Hawthorn Suites, 321 Bercut Drive, Sacramento California. At the convention Brian Moore, Gloria La Riva, Ralph Nader, and Cynthia McKinney will be seeking the Peace and Freedom Party’s presidential nomination. A debate among the four presidential candidates will be at the same location on Friday, August 1 at 7 p.m.

Stewart A. Alexander

Vice Presidential Nominee Socialist Party USA

Candidate for V.P. Nomination Peace and Freedom Party

July 27, 2008

It was October 19, 2007 that Brian P. Moore and Stewart A. Alexander met for the first time at the National Convention of Socialist Party USA; in St Louis, Missouri. Less than three days later, the two men were joined together as presidential running mates representing the Socialist Party USA, and joint partners to lead in the socialist movement nationwide. During the convention, Brian Moore was nominated for President and Stewart Alexander was nominated for Vice President.

With less than a week before the State Convention of the Peace and Freedom Party, both Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander are hoping to capture the nomination for president and vice president of the California socialist party; to expand the party’s mission and socialist agenda nationwide. There are three other presidential candidates besides Brian Moore that will be attending the convention in Sacramento, California; they are Ralph Nader, Gloria La Riva, and Cynthia McKinney. The hope of all four candidates will be to secure the party’s nomination for president.

The Peace and Freedom Party of California, founded in 1967, is committed to socialism, democracy, ecology, feminism and racial equality. As stated in the party’s platform, the party is organized toward a world mission where cooperation replaces competition, where all people are well fed, clothed and housed; where all women and men have equal status; where all individuals may freely endeavor to fulfill their own talents and desires; a world of freedom and peace where every community retains its cultural integrity and lives with all others in harmony.

Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander believe the mission of the Peace and Freedom Party and Socialist Party USA are closely related and both socialist parties have worked for decades to protect the rights of working people; for better conditions in employment and better wages, affordable health care for all, affordable housing, and better benefits for seniors.

Within the past three years, millions of working people have seen a steady decline in living standards; the Peace and Freedom Party is offering short term and long term solutions in a capitalist system that continues to fail working people. Short term, Peace and Freedom Party wants the minimum wage double and index to the cost of living, the party is calling for the guaranteed right of all workers to organize and strike, and equal pay for equal work and for work of comparable worth. The PFP is also calling for a guaranteed dignified income for those who cannot work, and a Universal Basic Income that will alleviate poverty and homelessness.

Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander fully support the position of Peace and Freedom Party to tax the income and assets of the rich to meet human needs. Alexander says, “Under capitalism, the income of the workers is taxed to meet the needs of the capitalist ruling class; as we now see with the bail out of big banks, financial institutions, private investors and big corporations.” Both socialist parties are calling for all financial and insurance institutions to be socially owned and operated by a democratically-controlled national banking authority, which should include credit unions, mutual insurance cooperatives, and cooperative state banks.

The Moore/Alexander campaign fully supports the position of the Peace and Freedom Party and Socialist Party USA regarding international trade agreements. The PFP Platform states, “International trade agreements must guarantee the protection of workers and the environment in all participating countries; abolish NAFTA, GATT and the World Trade Organization (WTO).” Similar to the platform of the Peace and Freedom Party, the platform of Socialist Party USA “demands the immediate withdrawal of the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), and oppose the creation of a widened Free Trade Area of the Americas.”

Alexander says, “The trade agreements that are now in existence in the U.S. are assuring that this nation will continue to lose jobs abroad and will leave working people without work, here in the U.S. and in their own countries. These agreements will force the emigration of millions across the U.S. boarders for food, clothing and housing while robbing millions of working people from having the ability to maintain a decent standard of living in their own countries.”

Most of the national opinion polls are indicating that the economy is the number one concern with most voters, and the economy is a top campaign issue for Moore and Alexander; however, the number one concern of the Moore /Alexander campaign is ending the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and ending U.S. imperialism. Moore and Alexander have been strong opponent to the illegal war and invasion and both candidates are strongly opposed to the ongoing U.S. threats against the Iran government.

Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander believe their campaign is offering the socialist parties a national voice to speak on the many issues that are presently affecting working people. During a time when the Democrats and Republicans, Barack Obama and John McCain, have failed to address the needs of working people, Moore and Alexander firmly believe it is time for working people to take control and responsibility of their lives and their communities.

The 2008 General Election will become a turning point in American politics and will reshape the political landscape for third party candidates. The up-coming election is another turning point for the socialist parties and socialists candidates such as Brian Moore and Stewart Alexander; it has been more than 100 years since Eugene Debs first entered the race for president as a socialist candidate at the beginning of the 20th Century.

The State Convention for Peace and Freedom Party will convene on Saturday, August 2 and 3 at the Hawthorn Suites, 321 Bercut Drive, Sacramento California. At the convention Brian Moore, Gloria La Riva, Ralph Nader, and Cynthia McKinney will be seeking the Peace and Freedom Party’s presidential nomination. A debate among the four presidential candidates will be at the same location on Friday, August 1 at 7 p.m.
