The 21st Century American Conservative Populist Movement

Conservative Populist Philosophy

with one comment

What is “Conservative Populism”?

While there are differing understandings of each individual word, 21st-Century American Conservative Populism is best described through the following common definitions:

Con⋅serv⋅a⋅tism: disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc., or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change.

Pop⋅u⋅lism:  A political philosophy supporting the rights and power of the people in their struggle against the privileged elite.

It is important to stress that these two ideals do not fully ascribe to the ideals of any major U.S. political party.  Hence, it would be inaccurate to characterize this movement as being in support of either Democrats, Republicans, or Libertarians.

Instead, the Conservative Populist believes that by preserving the existing institution of the Constitution of the United States, they will ensure the rights and power of the people will be protected from the privileged elite.  This website is dedicated to the respectful discussion of these very topics, while observing how the ideas of conservatism and populism are either being promoted or being discouraged through political debate and subsequent media coverage.
