Because in the history of the world it has never once worked.

America is far too culturally, geographically, and priority diverse for socialism to do anything but destroy us. Not being caustic here, just trying to present a fact in a diplomatic manner. The countries which have had lengthy runs with socialism (note, I am not going to say 'countries where socialism has worked' because it ultimately has failed miserably everywhere it has become the prevailing system) have been homogeneous societies like the Nordic model... which is now strained to the point of future failure thanks to an influx of immigrants with their own particular priorities and cultural differences that are going to ultimately destroy the efficacy of socialism in those nations.

Socialism has only survived via 3 tools which are all but absent in modern society, amazingly destroyed by the very same crowd that wants socialism the loudest.
1. Shame- as in you don't pull your share, you are shamed into either compliance or driven out of the community entirely as a cancerous dead weight.
2. Limited education to ensure a larger physical laborer base.
3. iron clad border restrictions (the Berlin Wall wasn't just for show) plus restriction of information entering your population.

But... that is the problem: you (no offense, please, just stating) are mixing two very, very different points:

(a) social-democracy.

Modern social democracy is characterised by a commitment to policies aimed at curbing inequality, oppression of underprivileged groups and poverty, including support for universally accessible public services like care for the elderly, child care, education, health care and workers' compensation.
This is pro-capitalism and detests communism. Cold-war participant was Western Germany, aka Federal Republic of Germany.

(b) Socialsm as a pre-stage to communism. Cold-war participant was Eastern Germany, aka German Democratic Republic.

Huge difference. Social-democracy is the best politic in my opinion.

Nordic countries, btw, do NOT have the massive amount of problems with immigrants like Breitbart et al. seem to believe. I have been there just recently and neither my personal experiences nor the local news are en par with Breitbarts level of panic-and-desaster describing the situation over there.
