A radiant future for the USA?

The failings of the economy have brought an unfamiliar word onto the lips of the U.S. electorate – socialism. RT spoke to a young activist from the small Party of Socialism and Liberation, who says she's leading a new surge in American politics

Student, political activist and county supervisor candidate and just 20 years old, Marylou Cabral is all those things.

During a break between rallies and classes Marylou told RT why she believes neither of the primary candidates has the complete answer to the acute problems of the society and how politics are an integral part of her life.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
