Last month I received the following two interesting  items from friends.  Both made me wonder and question what our government is doing.

One was the cartoon from the Chicago Tribune in April of 1934 shown below.

The other was a quote from 1947.  It is from Norman Thomas, six-time candidate for President running for the Socialist Party of America.

He 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 knowing how it happened.”  He went on to say: “I no longer need to ru as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party.  The Democratic party has adopted our platform.”
