Ode To The Welfare State- "Democrat Dialogue" 1949 poem

This is making the rounds again. I'm not sure if it is authentic or not, but it's certainly apropos considering so many EU nanny states are in dire straits, and the Democratic Party continues to try and drag us down that same road. If left-leaning Snopes seems to think it is "probably" authentic, then it probably is.

Written in response to a Harry Truman speech on November 3, 1949 and published in the Daily News, the poem apparently appeared in other newspaper publications during that time period, including the Maryland, Daily Herald, and as a letter in the L.A. Times.
