On the right is a profile of the American leftist Norman Thomas (1884 - 1968), who sought the U.S. presidency six (6) times on the Socialist ticket. He was a former clergyman and despite the fact that he wished to ban all private property, nationalize all businesses and put the kibosh on a free press - he still sounded like swell Joe to us.

"Never has more than one in every 45 voters okayed ot the polls his theories of public ownership and operation of basic industries, drastic increases in taxation, and a gradual capital levy. His presidential vote jumped from 267,000 in 1928 to a peak of 187,000 in 1936... But, political theories aside, I can't help but admire the determination of this perennial also-ran, who stands up to more nasty epithets, more muttered warnings to get-the-hell-out-of-town, more flying missiles than almost any other American politician."

Norman Thomas was not alone: click here to read about U.S. Representative Hugh De Lacy, American socialist from the city of Seattle.
