    and Greece is hardly 3rd world, altho a good part of the reason the rich can evade taxes is that Greece hasn't modernized its tax collection system. It is too easy to avoid paying taxes....

    It takes more than having the word "socialist" in their names to make a country socialist, since a lot of them are really communist or dictatorships....
    Try the following for successful socialism...that are not 3rd world or dictatorships or communist...
    Canada
    France
    Sweden
    United Kingdom

    That doesnt make it succesful socialism. Just the opposite, those socialist programs have all caused problems for those countries. Increasing debt, unstable economies and currency, social unrest.

    you are only seeing what you want to see...
    all countries have problems, none of those countries are failing, the people who live there aren't moving to the USA in any large numbers, and those who do come here aren't coming because their countries are worse.
    Look at the overall picture....

    The US has the same problem, thats why. Socialist programs are causing debt, unrest and instability.

    socialist programs exist as a response to corporate greed, robber barons, the unscrupulous hoarding of wealth at the expense of the rest of the nation....

    Im sure thats what the socialists think. In the US however, that response is against the law. I dont have a problem with people who want to live in a socialist country. Just respect those who dont.
