“American People Will Never Knowingly Adopt Socialism”
"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."
(1884-1968) six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America
1948 - from an interview during the presidential campaign
