Why do people think we have Capitalism in the United States?

We have Corporatism not Capitalism. We have government taking over corporations, corporate welfare, too big to fail, government benefits to corporations, lobbying, and the whole Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac fiasco is a perfect example of how government intervention of the free market leads to catastrophe (and in this case, collapse of the housing market). We also have the Federal Reserve printing money right and left even though it is unconstitutional. The constitution says we should have a gold standard, that's not monopolized and controlled by the government. The Federal Reserve will be the cause of the collapse of the dollar. Inflation makes your salary and savings all worthless and decreases your living conditions. Now I'm 14 and even I understand we don't have capitalism in the United States (ever since 1913) but idiots like Micheal Moore think we do. romare- I would probably agree with him on alot but he titles his movie "capitalism: a love story"
