Patriotism and Populism

The United States is in trouble.  We’re in danger of becoming a fascist dictatorship where big government and big business combine to rule, and where the people are considered just a source of labor.  The marriage of government and the investor class has succeeded in exporting our jobs, importing illegal laborers to provide a pool of cheap labor, and driving down wages for all American workers, destroying the middle class.  Their foreign and military policies have led us into unnecessary wars of aggression to gain raw materials and enhance profits of the global robber barons.  Their trade policies have resulted in capital flight, job loss, trade deficits, and the ownership of much of our infrastructure by foreign interests.

We’ve gotten into this fix because our presidents, of both parties, have been servants of the global investors, and because our representatives in Congress, again of both parties, have abdicated their Constitutional responsibilities and subjected themselves to an imperial presidency.

A “patriot” is defined as one who loves, supports, and defends his country.  The Latin and Greek roots refer to “father.”  If, for a moment, we ignore the sexist nature of the ancient civilizations giving birth to the word, it is clear that to be a “patriot” is to have a parental love for the people of one’s tribe or nation.  One cannot have a “patriotic love” for the corporations in one’s country or for its military-industrial complex, only for its people.  Clearly then, those in our government who have served their corporate masters to the detriment of the people are not patriots, and have no claim to the word.  The vast majority of Americans love our country in ways that equate to service to the people.  We are the patriots.  You can’t be a patriot without being a populist.  Populism is patriotic.

Our Declaration of Independence and Constitution make it clear that the whole purpose of government is to serve and protect the people..  Ours is a government designed to be “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”  We, the Patriots, have a right and a duty to demand and to secure such a government.  If those in power will not fulfill their Constitutional duty to serve the people, then we must remove them and replace them with those who will.

On any given day you can find a news story that focuses on the conflict between democrats and republicans, or Group A and Group B. These groups could be anything, but as long as they are toted as being the opposite of each other, they will clash. When one party supports a bill, the other tends to oppose it. This holds true for both sides, creating a never-ceasing battle over political parties, as opposed to policy.
