    A system of Social Security.

    Government employment bureaus.

    Conservation of human resources.

    A rest period, for every worker, of not less than a day and a half in each week.

    Regulation of workshops, factories and mines.


    Freedom of press, speech and assemblage.

    A graduated income tax.

    Inheritance taxes.


    Unrestricted and equal suffrage for men and women.

    Initiative, referendum and recall.

    Democratic government in all United States territories.

    Measures for the conservation of health.

    Creation of a Department of Health.

    Bureau of Education to be made a department.

    Separation of the Bureau of Labor from the Department of Commerce

    Conservation and development of natural resources for the use and benefit of all the people. [
    /INDENT]
    This just illustrates the quote. America wouldn't adopt ANY of the concepts in bold if they had been presented as a Socialist package-deal, but by presenting them individually and under the guise of "what's best for us", all this has become part and parcel of daily life. The other items are integral to the Constitution or Bill of Rights and merely needed to be clarification to reverse traditional practices, such as equal suffrage, and initiative, referendum & recall.

    Both the Republicans and Democrats have borrowed ideas from the Socialist Party platform. One example is Social Security.

    Using Ask.com Search Engine - Better Web Search as my favorite search engine, I found many websites affirming that Norman Thomas DID make the statement. This info was found at Norman Thomas Quote with Comments

    "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
    Source: 1948 - from an interview during the presidential campaign,

    [Ed. note: Norman Thomas and Gus Hall, the U.S. Communist Party
    Candidate, both quit American politics, agreeing that the Republican
    and Democratic parties had adopted every plank on the
    Communist/Socialist and they no longer had an alternate party platform
    on which to run.]

    So I guess we the American people have to stop this "one day" from happening.

    NO_vember will be here soon. Time to focus the anger into something positive. Out with the liberals...

    I agree. However, those who favored the "Industrial" and "Political" demands of the Socialists were an overwhelming majority and possessed the intelligence to understand that a complex industrialized secular democratic republic didn't have to adopt the "Collective Ownership" demands of the Socialists in order to provide relief of the unemployed, establish a legal work day of eight hours, establish employment bureaus, provide for the conservation of human resources, establish for every worker a rest period of not less than a day and a half in each week, establish effective inspections of workplaces, establish freedom of press and speech and assemblage, establish a graduated income tax and grant many of the other political demands of the Socialist Party which are now great American institutions.

    That's a bogus quote.

    they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program
    History proves that statement is false.

    Americans have adopted many, if not most, of the Unemployment, Industrial and Political demands of the Socialists. However, they have rejected all of the Collective Ownership demands of the Socialist Party.

    Collective Ownership Demands of the Socialist Party in Their 1912 Platform

    1.) The collective ownership and democratic management of railroads, wire and wireless telegraphs and telephones, express service, steamboat lines, and all other social means of transportation and communication and of all large scale industries.

    2.) The immediate acquirement by the municipalities, the states or the federal government of all grain elevators, stock yards, storage warehouses, and other distributing agencies, in order to reduce the present extortionate cost of living.

    3.) The extension of the public domain to include mines, quarries, oil wells, forests and water power.

    4.) The further conservation and development of natural resources for the use and benefit of all the people: . . .

    5.) The collective ownership of land wherever practicable, and in cases where such ownership is impractical, the appropriation by taxation of the annual rental value of all the land held for speculation and exploitation.

    6.) The collective ownership and democratic management of the banking and currency system.

    Just because in your socialistic make believe world you can pretend that anything you disagree with is bogus does not make it so. Your whole socialist skewed world view is bogus.
