Norman Matoon Thomas
Nov 20, 1884 – Dec 19, 1968
Six time Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party of America. From 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.”
