Socialism can be just as bad, if not worse, than any other political ideology, if poorly implemented. I don't think anyone will argue that point. Socialism does not magically make the world a better place.
I'm just saying, even if we wanted to be more socialist, it would be bad if we just jumped into the pool with everybody else. I don't see how anyone is magically better educated, with a higher standard of living, and a healthier lifestyle just because of socialism. Rich Republican Catholics tend to do better on their SATs than the public school kids.
