    Whether it was Norman Thomas who said it in a 1944 speech or it was Upton Sinclair who wrote it in a 1951 letter to Norman Thomas is unclear, but it is definitely true that the origin of the statement emerged somehow between the two Socialist Party members of the past. The statement is usually quoted as coming from Norman Thomas, who is believed to have said, "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...

    This month reveals how deeply we have descended into an anti-human kind of Dante's Hell.  From Newsweek, which told us a month ago that "We Are All Socialists Now," last week's cover story was: The Case for Pulling the Plug on Granny. , written by Evan Thomas, the grandson of famous socialist  Norman Thomas, a six-time Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America. But now that we're all socialists, Evan Thomas can confess that he's just a Democrat. The fundamental delusion of Socialism is that there's a free lunch, plus free health care, free national defense (by decimating the...

    [Evan Thomas:] "...he [Obama] has a very different job from Reagan was all about America and you [Chris Matthews] talked about it. Obama is 'we are above all that now.' We're not just parochial. We stand for something. I mean in a way, Obama's standing above the country, above the world, he's sort of God."

    Because of my many years as a conservative in elected office, I have been asked by others, "how did we get in this mess we are in?" The great author Robert Louis Stevenson wisely said, "Sooner or later in life, we all sit down to a banquet of consequences." That's what's happening now, we're at the banquet. Here is a brief synopsis of how it happened. Many Americans believe that the core religious values, which founded and sustained this nation, have not only been sadly neglected but also forgotten. In so doing, the public is finding out what political ignorance...
