Thanks for the heads up on the Ballot Access News response by Bills. I hadn't visited their site for months. True, the SLP is small game, but the game seems to be the same in a lot of places, so an analysis of the SLP can be instructive in the analyses of other parties as well.
Petey, if you are interested in satisfying your curiosity about the integrity of Bills and the SLP, then you might want to directly ask him the following: Did past Nat'l Sec'y Arnold Petersen redefine Marx's proletarian dictatorship as a 'dictatorship over the peasantry' in his 1931 pamphlet "Proletarian Democracy vs. Dictatorships and Despotism"? Did AP then use his redefinition to suggest that 'the relative lack of a peasantry in the USA thereby renders the proletarian dictatorship unnecessary'?
It would do no good for me to take this query to Bills, because he could always dismiss me with a snort of derision, as he has been trained to do since I quit the party in 1977. However, if a third party such as yourself were to ask, YOU could not be so easily dismissed without raising a few eyebrows in the community. The working class deserves to know the truth on this subject, and I am curious to see if Bills is capable of delivering it. Would you do yourself and the working class such a favor? The workers deserve to know if the SLP offers anything of value.
