I simply see socialists as the worst possible choice in a democratic society: it leaves everyone poorer.

I don't want to say you are wrong (because you are right in some way). But, well in Germany we had a so called social capitalism (it's still called so, but they perverted the term social) and I think that's a good combination. Everyone can live from the money he earns and still - if you want to and have the right ideas - you can get rich.
Socialism is not possible in our world, it can't work, and capitalism pervertes often the "work" of people, that they can't live from their jobs.
