Transcript their hearts the closing words of the declaration, adopted at the last National Convention, which endorses the Alliance and urges the Party membership to carry the revolutionary spirit into the unions; and, turning their eyes heavenward, they meekly asked: In what way have we violated the Party declaration? A partial truth is the worst lie. They know they are garbling the Party's utterances. The passage they quote is only the conclusion of an argument, the premises of which declare the A. F. of L. and K. of L. to be hopelessly corrupt and the buffers for capital against the endeavors of the working class. The Party stands squarely upon these principles; the element that has faith in it upholds them with enthusiasm, despite troubles and inconveniences; the element, on the contrary, that has no faith in the Party, tries to ignore them and, despite their re-endorsement throughout the land, struggles against them as inconvenient, even to the extent of misquoting the Party, and demands that we "bore from within." And yet this is not all. The element that has no faith in the Party, that, accordingly, is extremely punctilious about first "being able to vouch" for the facts furnished by other Party papers, that element is seen taking the "facts," furnished by bourgeois Democratic party papers, without verification, and liking them so well as even to multiply them by three, thus trying to make the workers believe that they pay $100 taxes a year, in violation of all fact and all science, and thus playing directly into the enemy's hands. And finally we find that element reaching, logically enough, the point of trampling the Party platform under foot, as they do in this matter of taxation, and going even so far as attempting to make the Party in this country subordinate to the Party in Germany. That is their contention when the Party platform, which upholds the unquestionable principle that the taxes come from that part of the products of labor that labor is fleeced of anyhow by the capitalist class, is rubbed under their noses. You have heard Stahl on that subject. He no longer pretends to have respect for the platform. He asked: Was that platform ever submitted to a general vote? And his confreres, the Volkszeitung Germans, answered "Nein!" (No), and, accordingly, care not to uphold that platform. I ask: Were any of the German platforms, from which are taken the local pro-taxation planks that they quote, ever submitted to a general vote of the party in Germany? No! There is no referendum in the German party. There the party conventions decide, their decision is final. Think of the degrading position to which they want to lower the Party of America! The platform, adopted here, is to be treated as null because, forsooth, it was not submitted to a referendum, but the platform declarations of Germany, never adopted here and never submitted to a referendum even there, they are to be binding here! Altogether a position in keeping with total disrespect for, and no faith in, our Party! The other element, however, that HAS faith in our Party, respects the Party, holds high its platform and banner, and moves on convinced that the S. L. P. IS THE Party of emancipation in America.
