  • Sixty-five years ago Norman Thomas knew what was going to happen to our country in 2008.

    Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884 December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America . The Socialist Party candidate for President of the US , Norman Thomas, said this in a 1944 speech:

    "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of "liberalism," they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." He went on to say: "I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform."

    In many ways our economy already resembles a European one. As boomers age and spending grows, we will become even more French.
