Brian Patrick Moore (born June 8, 1943) is an United States politician and founder of antiwar organization Nature Coast Coalition for Peace & Justice. He was the presidential nominee of the Socialist Party USA for the 2008 United States presidential election; has waged several unsuccessful campaigns for mayor and city council in Washington, D.C.; and twice ran for the United States House of Representatives from Florida's 5th congressional district.

As a Democratic Party member, in 1976 Moore worked as the New Mexico coordinator under Terry Sanford, who eventually lost his position to Jimmy Carter. Disliking the decision he left the party. Later on, he joined the Republican Party, and left soon after. In 2006 he was endorsed by the Green Party to run for Senate in the 2006 United States midterm elections. In 2007, Moore joined the Socialist Party.

Moore supports strengthening the working class by weakening the capitalist system. He would withdraw troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, and reduce the budget for the Department of Defense by 50%. During his presidential campaign he claimed that the current economic system was falling apart because of capitalism's "own greed".



Moore earned a bachelor's degree at San Luis Rey College in California, a Master's degree in Public Administration from Arizona State University, and studied in a Franciscan Catholic seminary before joining the Peace Corps in 1969. As a Peace Corps volunteer and later working for a non-profit agency, Moore was involved in community development and infrastructure projects in poor neighborhoods of Bolivia, Panama and Peru. He has worked almost 20 years in the HMO/Managed Care industry as an Executive Director, Project Administrator, and Consultant.

Internationally, Moore has been involved in community development, reconstruction and infrastructure rehabilitation projects (housing, water, electricity and sewage) in the developing and poverty-stricken countries of Panama, Peru, and Ecuador. For more than five years, Moore designed and implemented programs for public health projects (vaccination and health education) in Latin America (Brazil, Guatemala, Colombia, Dominican Republic and Mexico) and Tanzania, Africa, in coordination with and on behalf of private corporations, religious institutions and non-governmental organizations. Moore raised $3 million for a de-worming project that successfully protected more than one million children from parasitic infections in the poverty-stricken areas of Brazil, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.[citation needed]


Moore was a member of the Democratic Party and worked as the 1976 New Mexico coordinator for Terry Sanford, who lost the nomination to Jimmy Carter.[1] The experience turned Moore off the Democrats to becoming independent because "the Democrats threw over this liberal, progressive guy."[1] He volunteered for independents John B. Anderson in 1980 presidential election and Ralph Nader in 2004 and supported Reform Party candidate Pat Buchanan in the 2000 presidential election because Buchanan "was for fair trade over free trade. He had some progressive positions that I thought would be helpful to the common man."[1]In the 1980s, Moore was elected to three terms on an Advisory Neighborhood Commission in Washington, D.C. Moore waged several unsuccessful bids for mayor and city council in Washington, D.C., and twice ran for the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida's 5th congressional district.[2]

According to John P. Martin, Moore's highest election tally came during his run for city council in 1984, in which he drew 18,497 votes.[3]

In 1994, he ran as a Republican and won 640 votes in the primary.[3]

In 2006, running as a Green Party-endorsed[4][5] independent anti-war candidate against Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican challenger Katherine Harris, Moore polled 19,695 votes. During that campaign, he called for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. Ralph Nader endorsed Moore in the race.[1]

In 2007, he became a socialist and joined the Socialist Party USA as a presidential candidate for the 2008 election.[1] Moore says being called a socialist by opponents opened him up to the movement. Although he was new to the party and socialism, his experience as a grassroots candidate and an elected official as well as his media savvy may have been what helped him get the nomination over party veterans.

2008 presidential campaign

Moore, of Florida, and vice-presidential nominee Stewart Alexander of California, were nominated on October 20, 2007 at the Socialist Party USA's National Convention in St. Louis, Missouri, where their ticket won by four votes.[1][6] Moore also was the only candidate to collect the 1,000 signatures required to participate in the Liberty Union Party's presidential primary. He was on the ballot under the Socialist Party USA in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, New Jersey, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, and on the ballot under the Liberty Union Party in Vermont. He was also available as a write-in candidate in several other states.[7] On election day Moore received 6,528 votes nationally [8]. His best showing was in Tennessee, where he received 1,326 votes out of 2,614,000 votes cast. [9]

On October 28, 2008, Moore appeared on the Colbert Report and dismissed accusations from John McCain that Barack Obama is a Socialist.[10]

Political positions

A founder and chair of the Nature Coast Coalition for Peace & Justice, an anti-war group founded in 2002, Moore has been a persistent critic of U.S. military involvement in Iraq. He is an advocate for democratic public control of the economy and society, participatory democracy, universal health care, greater employment, and housing for all.

Moore wants to "get rid of the for-profit system" and calls for Wall Street to be made into a "socially owned democratic authority of economists, experts and consumers who are not part of consumer America, to oversee these banks, to form credit unions, state banks."[1] He proposes that under his system, the best-paid would make no more than 10 times what the lowest-paid worker receives.[1]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
