Kevin, I'm not stating a new official position, merely putting forth my
personal observations about attitudes toward Stalin among my comrades. We're
in NO WAY a Maoist or Hoxhaist Party, we're not a Stalinist Party either,
and we're not going to become any of the three. I'm simply referring to the
change in attitudes among leftists toward Stalin, which has apparently not
yet reacheed the list yet, and referring most to the Leftists who are most
near and dear to me, the comrades of the CPUSA. Although we all see a
Zyuganov victory as a tremendous achievement and step on the road to
socialism, this sin't bringing about a *change* in our position. We have the
same position we always had. Comradely, Charlotte
