EARLY ON IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, IF YOU CAN REMEMBER BACK TO FEBRUARY, THE GROWING GAP BETWEEN RICH AND POOR IN THE COUNTRY SEEMED TO BE EMERGING AS A REAL POLITICAL ISSUE. AND BOTH REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS ACCUSED EACHOTHER OF WAGING CLASS WARFARE. SINCE THEN, THE ISSUE OF WEALTH CONCENTRATED IN THE HANDS OF A FEW HAS FADED FROM THE RHETORIC OF THE MAJOR PARTY CANDIDATES... BUT THERE ARE SOME PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFULS WHO HAVEN’T LET THE ISSUE DIE. YOU MAY NOT KNOW IT, BUT THERE ARE THREE SOCIALISTS RUNNING FOR THE WHITE HOUSE THIS YEAR. THEY ARE MARY CAL HOLLIS OF THE SOCIALIST PARTY USA, JAMES HARRIS OF THE SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY AND MONICA MOOREHEAD OF THE WORKERS WORLD PARTY. THEY JOIN US NOW FOR A DISCUSSION AND DEBATE ABOUT THEIR PLATFORMS AND THE RELEVANCE OF SOCIALISM IN THE U.S. TODAY
