Nobody will object to me calling him a socialist, will they?

Seeing as he describes himself as a democratic socialist, no, I don't think anyone will object. However, I do have 2 follow-up questions for you--
1. do you truly know what socialism is (and that there are many different forms of it... i.e. democratic socialism vs Lenin's USSR)?
2. do you think it is a bad thing or insult to call someone? if so, why?

1). Yes. I was a socialist. Almost a communist.
2). Yes, it is a very bad thing. It is also an accurate thing, a real description that helps identify who he is, what he believes and what he will do.
Just like evangelical Christian, or tongues talker are accurate descriptors that give real information on what those groups believe and do.
And it is a de facto insult for those of us who disagree with socialists.
Capitalism is the best system because it is he freest system, it takes the sinful nature of man into account the best.
