There are social services and they are not socialism. Socialism is a political thing social is something done by society. I am amazed that somebody has yet to come up with something like "societyist" or somesuch.
Social Democracy is what it's called. Except in America where we hate social services. Here we must link it to something everyone hates so no one will want healthcare, fair wages, and education.
So far it's working and you(JGW) will vote for the guy who wants to send jobs overseas, keep wages low and healthcare unattainable. The guy who wants to make abortion illegal, keep college debt high, and the eternal wars going on forever. The guy who has voted on several occasions to reduce Social Security and cut Medicare. They guy who thinks $7.25 is a fair wage and can't remember which state he's in or which office he's running for.
