    Hi, Stan, and thanks for writing. Before thinking about the transition from socialism back to capitalism, it makes sense to look at how we understand the transition to socialism in the first place. Getting to socialism will require more than an election. Imagine CPUSA won majorities in every federal and state legislative chamber and took the White House and every governorship—even then, building socialism would be a monumental task. (By the way, to dispel a misconception: we do not see ourselves ruling a single-party state, as in the Soviet or Chinese models.  The multi-party system is part of the democratic traditions of this country, and socialism has to be built on those.)
