U.S. Labor Party

The U.S. Labor Party was a short lived political party formed in the mid-1970s by the National Caucus of Labor Committees. It served as a vehicle for Lyndon LaRouche to run for President of the United States in 1976, but it also sponsored many candidates in the late 1970s for local offices or Congressional seats. These candidates sometimes received unusually high vote totals in comparison with those garnered by other small ideologically-based parties, but LaRouche's own vote total in 1976 was minuscule. When the USLP was launched, the NCLC was still in transition from a far-left to far-right ideology but by 1977-78 both organizations (which were really one and the same for all essential purposes) were advocating extreme-right positions.

"In Baltimore, USLP candidate Debra Freeman appealed openly to racist and anti-Semitic sentiments in her 1978 campaign against incumbent Congressman Parren Mitchell, chairman of the Black Congressional Caucus. Freeman, who is white, described Mitchell as a 'house nigger' for Baltimore's 'Zionists' and an example of 'bestiality' in politics....She won more than 11 percent of the vote, doing especially well in several white precincts." (King, p. 88)

Freeman's rhetoric was mild compared to what LaRouche himself was saying in the late 1970s, according to King, who states (pp. 55-56) that the USLP chairman even advocated launching ABC warfare (atomic, biological and chemical) against the Soviet Union as well as the military crushing of Britain (which his newspaper described as the headquarters of something called the "Zionist-British organism").


LaRouche began in 1978 a vigorous USLP campaign for the presidency in 1980, targeting farmers, small businessmen and Teamsters Union members in the Heartland states. By late summer of 1979, however, the NCLC and LaRouche had decided to join the Democratic Party so that LaRouche could run for that party's presidential nomination, and the US Labor Party was disbanded. LaRouche could have joined the farthest right of the Republican Party, but that niche was already crowded. In the Democratic Party he could (and did) build a niche with no competition. (King, p. 89.)

Australian Labor Party (673 words)
Party mythology says it was founded at a meeting of agricultural workers under a tree (the "Tree of Knowledge") in Barcaldine, Queensland, in 1891.
Indeed, during the 1980s the party was responsible for the introduction of many economic policies such as privatization of government enterprises, and deregulation of many previously tightly-controlled industries, which are normally the province of conservative governments.
In both of those instances, the Labor Party was splintered by the warring factions, and kept out of power for decades by infighting, but the most devestating split was the 1954 split on communism.
