The socialist who spoke out against the for world war in 1917 and was imprisoned under the Espionage Act! He ran for president and received over 1 million write in votes out of 26 million votes! Let us remember even if the powers that be try to stop or even imprison Ron Paul the american people shall not forget him!

Debs, although a hardline socialist, did the right thing by standing up to an abusive government. He is one of the few socialists I respect.

I wonder why the people 100 years ago were more open to 3rd parties. not just Debs.

Norman Thomas, another socialist, was also very anti-war and joined the America First Committee in the early 1940's.
