The Presidential Socialist Candidate, Norman Thomas, said the following in his 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 Democratic Party has adopted our platform."
NOTE: Norman Matoon Thomas (born November 20, 1884 - died December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, PACIFIST, and six-time presidential candidate for the SOCIALIST Party of America.
