  1. Such sad news. Bob was a long time member of the Socialist Party and I had the privledge of meeting him at several conventions. Condolences to his daughter Hopi and the rest of his family

  2. Bob was a great guy, and lived his beliefs. His home was in Greenbelt, Maryland, which was formed as a community to represent the finest ideals. Bob worked for many years as a librarian for the University of the District of Columbia. I will always remember Bob’s “toothpick theory” – that if you bundle a bunch of toothpicks together you can’t snap them as you can individually. Therefore, Bob was a strong advocate of unified action.

  3. I am very sorry to hear about this. I met Bob Auerbach when my small third-party-boosting college club, the St. Mary’s College Nonpartisans, endorsed him for a Congressional race back in 2004. Despite his advanced age, Auerbach traveled two hours to our remote campus to accept the endorsement in person. He gave a rousing speech that inspired us to keep fighting for voter choice. As a lonely voice campaigning tirelessly for American freedom, Auerbach touched a lot of people; he will be missed.
