    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.

    One of them said, "Yep, here we come United Socialist States of America".

    Freidrich A. Hayek, wrote a book in 1944, as true today as it was then. Read "The Road To Serfdom". It's absolutely chilling.

    Best,
