Quote for Today

“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.”

~Norman Thomas
Socialist Party presidential candidate in 1940, 1944 and 1948. 

 

Is this man’s prophecy coming true today?

    @fwren – Yes, there was another one that I read somewhere recently by Lenin or Marx or someone, that said something about Americans accepting socialism as long as it looked like something else…?  I was actually searching for that one when I found this, which basically says the same thing.  I read an article in a magazine that made me remember it.
