Harry S. Truman quote

Socialism is a scare word
they have hurled at every advance
the people have made in the last twenty years.
Socialism is what they called
public power.
Socialism is what they called
Social Security.
Socialism is what they called
farm price supports.
Socialism is what they called
bank deposit insurance.
Socialism is what they called
the growth of free and independent
labor organizations.
Socialism is their name for almost anything
that helps all the people.
Harry S. Truman
October 10, 1952
