THE SOCIALIST PARTY strives to establish a radical democracy that places people's lives under their own control - a non-racist, classless, feminist socialist society... where working people own and control the means of production and distribution through democratically-controlled public agencies, cooperatives, or other collective groups.; where full employment is realized for everyone who wants to work; where workers have the right to form unions freely, and to strike and engage in other forms of job actions; and where the production of society is used for the benefit of all humanity, not for the private profit of a few. We believe socialism and democracy are one and indivisible... From Socialist Party USA Statement of Principles "Socialism As Radical Democracy" read the full document

SPUSA STATEMENT ON THE FERGUSON GRAND JURY RULING
The mask is off. We have seen behind the curtain. American Imperialism has come home to roost, and it is wearing a badge.
The grand jury decision in the case of Darren Wilson -- the officer who shot Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American man six times -- is another tragically clear indication that the people of the United States are the targets of a brutally racist and oppressive system that has multiple definitions of "justice" dependent on one's class position. Racism, police brutality, and oppression have received pardons. Again.
The deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin are tragedies, but not isolated incidents. Such deaths have become disturbingly frequent in an era of increasing police militarization, decreased police accountability, and continued racial profiling.
