• “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)

  • “Every new crisis must be more serious and more universal than the last. Every fresh slump must ruin more small capitalists and increase the workers who live only by their labor. This will increase the number of the unemployed and this is the main problem that worries economists. In the end commercial crises will lead to a social revolution far beyond the comprehension of the economists with their scholastic wisdom.” ~Friedrich Engels (London: W.O. Henderson, The Life of Friedrich Engels, 1976; Outlines of a Critique of Political Economy, 1844)

  • “It goes without saying that these conspirators by no means confine themselves to organizing the revolutionary proletariat. Their business consists in . . . spurring it in to artificial crises . . . For them the only condition required for the revolution is a sufficient organization of their own conspiracy. They are the alchemists of the revolution.” ~Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels (Marx and Engels Collected Works, Vol. 10, p. 318)

  • “Your children’s children will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept Communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism. We won’t have to fight you; We’ll so weaken your economy, until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.” ~Soviet leader Nikita Khrushschev, as told to Ezra Taft Benson, Eisenhower’s Secretary of Agriculture, in 1959

  • “Our Constitution . . . is based upon certain inalienable freedoms and protections which in no event the government may infringe . . . It does not require a lawyer to interpret those provisions. They are as clear as the Ten Commandments . . . Behind them is the conception which is the highest development of the Christian faith-the conception of individual freedom with brotherhood.” ~Herbert Hoover

  • “To enter upon a series of deep changes . . . would be to undermine and destroy our American system . . . No man who has not occupied my position in Washington can fully realize the constant battle which must be carried on against incompetence, corruption, the tyranny of government expanded into business activities . . . Free speech does not live many hours after free industry and free commerce die.” ~Herbert Hoover, warning against his opponent’s collectivist “New Deal” plans of the government taking control of businesses. Madison Square Garden, NY, October 31, 1932
