Norman Mattoon Thomas - Socialist

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 Democratic Party has adopted our platform'.

Just think about what has happened since 1944. Do you feel safer or more secure now? Does the government have more control of your life and finances?
