32.
A person believing in basic amounts of equality for all individuals. Different variations hold different extremes, ranging from free government-provided basic medical, financial and educational services to complete redistribution of wealth.

Does not hate America, in fact, most see it as the greatest country on Earth. But rather than sit back, ignore the problems it still has and be happy the way it is, they look for ways to further improve life for all its people.

A common feature of socialists is the desire to focus on human issues (poverty, illness and education) rather than social issues (abortion, gay marriage, religion). This causes most neoconservatives to hate them with every beat of their cold, black hearts.
Socialist: So, you don't want to pay more taxes to fund care for everyone? Fine. Let's legalize marijuana, something we spend billions of dollars a year trying to get rid of while fighting a losing battle. We'll apply heavy taxes to its sale, similar to alcohol or cigarettes, with appropriate age restrictions for purchase and use. Nonviolent offenders will be freed, and most drug dealers will forced out of business. We'll take the tax money created there -- along with the billions spent quarterly on police and federal prisons -- to actually pump Social Security back to life and establish free clinics, and expand tuition assistance. The boost to the economy from an entirely new multi-billion dollar industry will allow job growth and provide millions of people to get new or better jobs.
Neoconservative: Why do you hate America?

One who believes that the fruits of your labor belong to everyone else but you. Most favor high taxes to support a bloated nanny state that strips you of your rights in the name of security. Ironically these high taxes hurt the working man whom they champion. Advocates of this doctrine generally use rifles and rhetoric in political debates. They generally consider the US Constitiution as an obtacle to be overcome. Not to be confused with Democrats(Altough there are many similarities.)
Ivan: Hey Ted, hows it going?
Ted: Not bad, the new socialistgovernment just took my paycheck to help build a 10 mile bridge to an unpopulated island.
Ivan: You couldn't buy anything anyway, the government controlled economy doesn't produce consumer goods.

A person who thinks that the hard working people should share their paychecks with their lazy neighbors, just because they have more money. Even though they worked hard for their money, they should still give it to their neighbor who sits on their couch watching tv all day, because it wouldn't be FAIR if the hard worker had more money.

Socialists also tend to think that the hard working people should pay for their lazy neighbor to go to the hospital as well. Kind of like Barack Obama. Even though the lazy neighbor is completely useless and spent their Obama Check on beer and cigarettes, hardworking people should pay for their healthcare. The hardworking person only wants to keep their money because they're a greedy asshole, not because they worked hard for it or anything.
My neighbor gets 2000 dollars from the government every month because "his back hurts." Yet he spends his entire day out in his backyard, building a treehouse, a go-cart, and other projects. And Barack Obama wants me to pay for his healthcare now as well as his backyard projects. Fuck you, Obama, Pirate Socialist in Chief.

Because they believe that your rights are granted (and taken away) by government, rather than by the individual, a socialist is just another facist totalitarian, masquerading as a humanitarian

5.
A person who rejects the notion that all people are created equal, and supports the notion that all people must BECOME equal. The socialist proposes to enforce this equal outcome on society by giving all kids the same grades in school, and by taking money from people who have earned it and handing it to people who don't like to work.

In short, a democrat.
Hillary Clinton is a socialist who wants to raise your taxes and get as much money as possible from you, and give that money to illegal immigrants so they can live as well as you. Actually, the true outcome is, you live as badly as they do.

A person who believes that giving people money will get them out of poverty, based on generalisations that all rich people and corporations and greedy, someone who believes in, ultimately limited freedom of speech and freedom of thought, and believes that some humans (government) are better than others at making decisions for everyone, although if people are truly equaly everyone would make decisions for themselves and only themselves.
Examples of Socialist states are: East Germany, Russia 1945-1989, China during Mao's regime

Someone who thinks people are too stupid to make up their minds. To the Socialist, only the elite and "intellictuals" have the ability to decide what kind of health care you get, food you eat, children you have, etc.

The irony of the Socialist is that most have never produced anything useful in their lives, yet they feel the need to tell people who do produce thing what they may or may not do with them.

To the Socialist, the world is a zero sum game.
The art professor at my community college is a Socialist who advocates national health care.
