Is there a distinction to be made that the Chinese call themselves "socialist",
Actually, they almost never use that term over there any more, as far as I've seen. Many people call their system a "hybrid economy"; notice in particular that the state owns very few (if any) of the Chinese companies that now make pretty much every product sold at WalMart today.
#SillyHashTag has (to my knowledge) never confused himself with a "conservative" in any way, shape, form, or context
Obviously he won't during his own administration call himself a conservative, but history will absolutely classify him as such. Equally relevant is the fact that both Presidents Bush did call themselves conservative, and you have insisted those self-applied labels to be incorrect many times.
In other words, you are insisting that your labels are correct, only because you say they are. Whenever anyone else suggests a label that you disagree with - regardless of factual support for it - you tell them that they are not "in good faith" or other such silliness, even though they supported the label vastly more so than you. In other words, your argument is hypocritical.
