 History OF The Socialist Party Of America (i.e. Dems,Required Reading)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Socialist Party of the United States of America was formally organized at a unity convention in Indianapolis in 1901.
The Socialist Party was down to about 2,000 members, and had more or less withdrawn from electoral action in the face of the increasingly restrictive ballot-access laws passed by state legislatures around the country.
Since this meant the Socialist Party was completely isolated from the anti-war movement, as well as from the so-called "new left," it was virtually the only left party in the country that did not experience a major upsurge in membership during this period.
