Carlos, when you were asked for proof that Nestor's party supported Menem, 
you answer that Nestor's party supported Menem. In trying to throw mud, it 
only ended up in your own face.

I have known Nestor for over 10 years on the Internet. I have agreed with 
him on some questions and disagreed with him on others. I just checked the 
archives to make sure that I am not in error, but I could not find a single 
positive reference to Menem or could remember one for that matter.

I have no idea whether you are trying to launch a new Trotskyist party or 
not, but you might want to aspire to Trotsky's scruples when it comes to 
questions such as these rather than Stalin's.
