RW buzzword: "socialism"

And I have been gingerly performing my own social experiment.
When I've heard someone spit about "socialism"... I have been asking just exactly how they define the term. Guess what? They're totally fucking stumped. Every time.
Beyond that, two of those who I've head "I vote republican because they don't want socialism".
Both of those individuals are applying for Social Security disability benefits, became slack-jawed, totally thrown when I mentioned that Social Security, food stamps etc. IS democratic socialism. That the fire, police, street maintenance, stoplights, and dozens of services we all use every day are--- socialist programs.
Fox news simply doesn't provide these fucks much of an education do they? Their viewers do receive some sort of degree learning all the propaganda don't they?
