I have pondered many forms of governance and always came back to Americanism because of a single distinction.
Which of the many isms do you prefer?
Isms range from 0.0% government control to 100% government control.
Isms have many labels, sub-labels, and acronyms.
Isms may be constituted or not.
Isms may have organic documentation or not.
I long ago grew weary of sorting through all the variations of each and settled it with one question.
Regardless of the name, regardless of who favors it, and regardless of what it can do for me if the first obligation of that government is not to protect peoples rights then I want nothing to do with it.
