    I think it could be argued that the single most disastrous political
    error in U.S. history was the decision of the CPUSA in 1936 to support
    Roosevelt rather than maintain independence of two ruling parties. Even
    miniscule reforms are better won by independent action than by dickering
    with the dems.
