• “Now back in 1927 an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism the American people will adopt every fragment of the socialist program . . . One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project . . . Madison in 1788 . . . said . . . ‘There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by the gradual and silent encroachment of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations’ . . . We want no further encroachment on these individual liberties and freedoms … We do not want socialized medicine . . . If you don’t, this program I promise you will pass … and behind it will come other federal programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known … until, one day … we will awake to find that we have socialism . . . And . . . you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.” ~Ronald Reagan (1961)
