socialism: (1) politics on Viagra [Michael Peirce]; (2) a "gateway drug" to either communism or fascism [Lenin]; (3) a particularly attractive idea to ambitious leaders, politicians, bureaucrats and constituents who are either ignorant of history and economics or do not pay taxes; (4) a plan for raising a nation's standard of living that is as practical as standing in a bucket and lifting one's self up by the handle [Winston Churchill]; (5) the popular notion that government can raise one "boat" by sinking another; while, at the same time, draining the harbor [John F. Kennedy]; (6) political concept that has limited success as long as there is someone to feed and clothe it;
