How does it follow that taking care of poor people make you a socialist?

Being a socialist means the willingness to use force against a second party so that this second party is compelled to give of his fortune to the benefit of some third party which the first party insists is more deserving of the second party's money than the second party himself.
And of course, the first party will congratulate himself with keeping a small commission from the second party's money for having redistributed some of it to the third party.
