    Manley is NOT of constitutional legal age and needs to stop this bullshit. (That said, it’s too bad the SPUSA didn’t have other candidates. And, I don’t know why it and some other parties don’t wait until the actual election year.)

    This makes sense. The Green Party and the Socialist Parties are similar.

    Does the Socialist Party actually have ballot status anywhere?

    RE SocraticGadfly:
    Yes, he is not constitutionally eligible to be Prez. I’d say he’s better suited running for offices he is old enough for. If I remember correctly its to avoid certain FEC rules.

    RE fred stein:
    Kinda sorta.

    RE NewFederalist:
    Not that I know of.
