“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” - Winston Churchill
 

A page from history:
 

Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884 – December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America .

The Socialist Party candidate for President of the U.S., Norman Thomas, said this in 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."
