Why would anyone want be a Socialist?

Think about this question for just one minute. Okay, time is up.  Do you even know what socialism is?

For anyone who does, and understands the history and oppressive nature of “shared equality” and income nonsense, they would fully understand its inherent danger to the society and mostly to its people.  It’s called Poverty!  Add to the mix murder, starvation etc., and you have a wonderful society of oppressed people.  Lovely!  Yeah Bernie!  Yeah Cortez!  Yeah Pocohantas!  Nearly 170 million people were slaughtered in the 20th Century under socialist government rule.  How is that for success?

That’s a level of success that I would rather run and hide from.
