>Your argument is not based on BASIC MARXISM because no BASIC MARXIST would advocate using a bourgeois political process to advance communism at this point in time. There is no viable communist or socialist party.
Major premise: Communism is the political goal
Minor premise: There is no viable communist / socialist party
Andrew's conclusion: Campaign for the Democrats
Rohan's (& list majority) conclusion: Build one...
...That is, build a communist, socialist or labour / left-socialdemocratic party [I'm trying to be non-persciptive here]... or failing that, build working class organisation that leads in said direction.
The last thing I want to say on this is... a marxist can hold to a heterodox position and still be a marxist, but they can ill afford to expect other marxists to flock to their [on consensus non-marxist] position.
