What happens when Socialism/Communism takes over your country

I thought you detested socialist welfare policies and what happens when they take over your country.

... the draft legislation gives enormous discretion to treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin in deciding how the money [$500 billion] is spent, and offers little in the way of transparency about where the money ultimately goes. Mnuchin can waive provisions that prevent companies from using funds to buy their own stock, and Democratic senators say there aren’t real requirements that businesses keep workers employed, provide them paid leave, or limit pay and bonuses to management.

This has nothing to do with socialism.

Or you become one of the most powerful countries in the world like China and the USSR.
There is no USSR or Red China anymore but when they existed they were dirt poor and finally had to adopt capitalism or collapse. Deng Xiaoping opened up southern China as a special trade region and developed Shenzhen to trade through Hong Kong. Reagan and Gorby ended the cold war since the USSR was penniless. East Germany could afford to keep the Berlin Wall up

You mean I don't have to pay for Trump's corporate bailouts?
Did you pay for Obama's bailouts to the auto and finance industries? How many trillion was that? Silly to compare this to my OP. If you want socialism then fine. I am not here to stop you.

China's still pretty red, despite their free market reforms. The USSR went from a backward, agrarian feudal society, to an industrial powerhouse.

But socialism BAD
