2016 Socialist Party USA Presidential Candidate

Community Organizer

Dean Alan Capone
Born: unknown
Very little information is available on Dean Capone. He does not share his educational credentials, and he is silent on his work history except to say that he has been a community organizer and former Treasurer of the Socialist Party USA in the Tampa Bay region. Consequently, it is not known in great detail what qualifications he brings to the table as a potential President.

Capone does speak on the importance of strengthening American industry and manufacturing, specifically through a solidly unionized workforce and a Universal Basic Income – a fairly standard socialist principle that generally involves a guaranteed monthly stipend provided by the government at taxpayer expense. Under this system, citizens are typically free to increase their income by working if they so choose and are able, but even if they do not or cannot, they are promised a minimum monthly revenue.

Capone is encouraged by his perception of rising numbers of young people identifying with the principles of socialism (if not the doctrine itself by name), and declares that the purpose of his campaign is not simply to run for office, but to “educate, illustrate, and galvanize” the issues his party stands for. He argues that a weakened form of socialist ideals have long been the foundation of the American economy, contrary to their popular image as foreign concepts.

A strongly leftist candidate, Capone accuses corporate tax cheats of bankrupting America, and calls for the restructuring and enforcement of corporate taxation. He also favors “inclusive immigration reform”, and the deprivatization of the penal system – or as he calls it, the “prison-industrial complex”.

With greater support for socialism-by-deed (and even by name) in the United States than is generally believed, Capone's far left policies are not completely alien to the American electorate, and many Democrats may be attracted to his positions. Of course, anyone right of center is likely to move on quickly after a single glance at his platform.
