I think it is interesting that people try to equate a higher tax rate to socialism. It is not related. It is simply a tax rate. Sometimes taxes can be too high - Sometimes they can be too low. But those taxes are used to pay for government spending. Raising taxes to pay our debt is not socialism. It is simply paying our debts.

Taxes can favor the wealthy - Or the poor. It depends how they are implemented.

We do however have socialism active right now. Our police force, our fire departments, and elementary and high public school systems, transportation and our military.
