Democratic Socialists of America Reports 64% Rise in Membership

From Newser:
(User Submitted) – Tea Party and Republican strategists who've been quick to label everything from the economic stimulus to health care reform with the dreaded word "socialist" are inadvertently bringing new interest and attention to the cause they claim to fear and oppose. The Democratic Socialists of America partly credits increased attention on socialism for a 64% rise in memberships between 2008 and 2009. The DSA party now has nearly 7,000 US members, and the 1,000-member Socialist Party USA has seen new chapters pop up in Kansas and Oklahoma. “
