    The Communist Party USA is a working class organization founded in 1919 in Chicago, IL.

    The Communist Party stands for the interests of the American working class and the American people. It stands for our interests in both the present and the future. Solidarity with workers of other countries is also part of our work. We work in coalition with the labor movement, the peace movement, the student movement, organizations fighting for equality and social justice, the environmental movement, immigrants rights groups and the health care for all campaign.

    But to win a better life for working families, we believe that we must go further. We believe that the American people can replace capitalism with a system that puts people before profit — socialism.

    We are rooted in our country's revolutionary history and its struggles for democracy. We call for "Bill of Rights" socialism, guaranteeing full individual freedoms.

But does not this policy dilute the entire idea of a single part that fights for the proletariat?
We have seen failure of this policy in India as it diluted the communist party allowed fall from principles and result it has become insignificant in Indian politics.

    If done correctly the united front policy can be effective at building the political base of a Communist Party. There are left or right errors just like with anything else that can be made with apply a strategy. Unless more information is given, I can’t say why it failed in India.
