Firstly, this article doesn't deal with re-electing Clinton, but with
defeating congressional Republicans. But we aren't living in a world where
neat and easy ultra-left tactics work because they don't. Right now, our
energies need to be focused on defeating the congressional attacks on the
people. We need to look at what the results of these attacks will be--and it
is unacceptable! They must be stopped. "Pure" political action is all well
and good, but what is it doing for the working class at the end of the day?
What is it teaching about the necessity of workers' political action? What
results does it produce? Nothing! Nothing at all! Standing to the sidelines
in sectarian manner is not going to unite and rally the working class.
Defeating the republicans can and will. It can build solid fighting
organizations of the people and show concrete results of struggle, as well
as lay the basis for independent political action and improve the lives of
the people.

No. The CPUSA is actually doing something for the people. TheParty is
organizing, uniting and fighting. We are growing at a tremendous rate. Our
last convention proved that. Tell your "pure" strategies to the thousands of
workers struggling and fighting for a better society and more and more,
finding their home for struggle in the CPUSA. They know better. They know
how to fight and how to win. That is why they are with the CPUSA--that is
why thaey *are* the CPUSA. Comradely, Charlotte
