No, if you want to make a biased case for Socialism you should compare
developed countries.  If you want to make a fair comparison you should
compare what the "poor" in the developed countries have with what you
need to survive and have a chance to improve your lot through hard work.
And that, everybody in the US has except those who lack the capacity to
care for themselves at all, and even most of them.

That is the measure of a country; how well those who have the least do,
not how much was handed to them.  Results; food on the table matters
more than intent to put it there.  The countries with the worst
starvation and disease problems aren't democracies.
