Capitalist USA, in fact, is actually a Socialist Economy. I know some of the American think-tanks org. who 'libertarianly' propound 'the Spirit of Capitalism' but it seems that the 'covert' donations by their Socialistic Government have kept them aloof to highlight the trend of Socialism within USA (United States of America). Nazi Germany experienced 'National Socialism'. USSR collapsed with 'Marxian Leninism'. China is enjoying 'Socialism with Chinese characteristics'. India constitutes 'Fabian Socialism'. North Korea is not situational with its own 'Authoritarian Socialism'. Socialism are of various form, and I'm unaware what you'd socialistically tag United States of America (USA) hitherto. I suppose that 'it is a Global Socialist' as it is more interested in preaching Liberty, promoting 'Democracy' abroad through CIA's operation or Missile system, exporting the financial tensions, funding and puppetizing UN, manipulating the data and statistics of 'rogue nations', bailing out the 'Globalist robbers' etc., etc. Leave me. Sir Milton had extend this contemporary view in economical sense http://www.cleverdude.com/content/milton-friedman-on-the-rise-of-socialism-in-the-us/ Now let us assume the commencement of 20th century, the era was privileged with Socialism genre and by middle of it the US Govt. employed McCarthyism. This is what I call here 'Keynesianism with American characteristics'. By 1950, 'some Socialistic American intelligence agency' had destroy the works of Serbian-American Inventor Nikola Tesla and still the tyrannic US Govt. tolerates what Albert Einstein prescribed in 1949? http://money.howstuffworks.com/socialism3.htm OK. I appreciate the Political Freedom or the 'so-called Economic Freedom' enjoyed by USA when compared with Russia, China and India but I must not forget to mention by appreciating the statistics of Chile and Mauritius who enjoy more scores on the indicator of Economic freedom than USA, and have also been not preaching Economic Liberalism like that by United Socialist America http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Index_of_Economic_Freedom#2012_rankings_.28First_30.29 And I also behold that non-rogue states are bound to hear the preachings from Uncle Sam , otherwise enjoy other colors than green http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:2011_Freedom_House_world_map.svg If there would not be inequality gap like that is now widening in China http://socialismoryourmoneyback.blogspot.in/2012/05/non-rise-of-china.html than Michael Moore or Noam Chomsky had nothing to speak for now. 'Occupy Wall Street' movement had no existence, the protesters of it were not to be then jailed for 3 years and the Bankers for 3 months. Great tyranny! Democrats stand for Big Government, isn't it? Therefore, Republican Congressman Allen West said, "many congressional Democrats are members of the Communist Party". Like it or not but you have to face the reality and that is http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2012/05/2012568342122448.html No doubt that President of War mongered economy Obama is not a Capitalist http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wor...ng-to-make-the-US-a-more-socialist-state.html but the symptoms of Socialism in America cannot be circumvented http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Defense_Authorization_Act From the above preface, I've posted below links that justify the empirical hypothesis : Free market capitalism in the United States is by no means "free." http://www.alternet.org/story/92426/the_u.s._economy_is_socialism_for_the_rich/ Something In-between? http://www.newgeography.com/content/00457-is-us-capitalist-socialist-or-something-in-between 11 reasons America's a new socialist economy. http://articles.marketwatch.com/2008-07-22/finance/30685907_1_absolute-power-ideology-liberals And when I suppose that the greed does not suffice the contentment, when the power of love is overtaken by the love for power then you are contemporarily enjoying something different than ever thought http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_Order_(conspiracy_theory) Heil United Socialist America!
