RE: Why Do So Many Americans Loath Socialism?

I think American Joe associates social democracies with socialism/communism, countries like Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland are all social democracies and I don't think you could call any of them failure's, in fact they normally make up the top five places in the world to live, other count...
