"The issue of this campaign -- it IS that word socialism. Some people like it. Younger people like it. Those of us like me, who grew up in a cold war and saw some aspects of it while visiting places like Vietnam, like I have, and seeing countries like Cuba, being there. I’m seeing what socialism’s like. I don’t like it. OK? It’s not only not free. It doesn’t freakin’ work!"

Reader comments about this quote:
As a stand alone comment, it gets 5 + stars. Considering the source  I'm not quite sure what he is calling socialism. In a broader sense beyond the quote, actions speaking loader than words; every thing he promotes, is socialism. I think Mr. thrill up my leg practices one of his gods sayings, even though this statement is accurate: "A lie told often enough becomes the truth" (Lenin).
