That's mild. Some folks around here call it a "communist".
Basically the two are totally differnent.
Socialism means decision by fiat. i.e every decision of government is 'socialism', though most associate it with government support programs for the poor, sick and disadvantaged. But the contract to the military/industrial complex and just as much socialism. So are the 'subsidies' to corporations and specific industries.
Communism though is basically the idea that the citizen can government himself if the 'heirarchy' of power declines. That is, the worker who is best at managing a company will work as the manager without special priveledges or higher salary. Works only in the case of high altruism where survival is dependent on cooperation such as the inuit in the high arctic or some desert dwelling tribes. The ones who hoard, are lazy, etc are weeded out by sanctions from the tribe (usually exile).
It has nothing to do with the 'party oligarchy' that is commonly called communism these days.
