I understand what you're saying, but "the government does stuff" just isn't socialism. And calling yourself a socialist doesn't really mean anything. The Democrats aren't in favor of a democracy, they're in favor of a republic. It's branding, nothing more. Calling yourself socialist in an era where capitalism is at its worst failure in modern history is sensible branding, but it doesn't mean you're actually a socialist.
