To quote Norman Thomas, “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.”
Remember what Hillary Clinton said in 2004, “We are going to take things away from you for the common good.”
Liberalism, progressivism, socialism, marxism — they are all just varying degrees of communism.
It’s time we started calling these people what they are. They will never admit what they are or what their true agenda is because they would never get elected.
Norman Thomas was a presidential candidate in the 1940s for the US Socialist Party and was one of the primary founders of the ACLU.
