I came from a real socialist country (USSR) and I don't like socialism. Having said that - one of reasons for so many non-ultra-conservative Americans, including socially conservative Hispanics like or even prefer 'socialism' is that conservative politicians and commentators managed to redefine the term. It no longer means 'the public ownership of means of production and distribution', nationalizing industries, etc - which, I am sure from thousands of opinions I have seen expressed on-line - most do not prefer, many despise.
