Socialist Labor Party

From dKosopedia

The Socialist Labor Party of the United States was founded in the 1880s as a democratic socialist party. Notable members included Jack London, the novelist. In the 1890s the party fell under the leadership of Daniel De Leon, who took the party in a dogmatic Marxist direction, and the party has remained tiny and sectarian ever since. Opponents of De Leon left at the turn of the century to found the Socialist Party, which quickly eclipsed the SLP in size and influence. De Leon, although a Marxist, opposed the Soviet Union and the Moscow-line Communist Party. The Socialist Labor Party stopped running Presidential candidates after 1976. It is America's second oldest third party after the Prohibition Party. Membership remains quite small.
