American Truck-Driving “Populism.” (This Is What’s Stopping DADT Repeal?)

Conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks today said it well in, “The Populist Addiction.”

“In fact, this country was built by anti-populists. It was built by people like Alexander Hamilton and Abraham Lincoln who rejected the idea that the national economy is fundamentally divided along class lines. They rejected the zero-sum mentality that is at the heart of populism, the belief that economics is a struggle over finite spoils. Instead, they believed in a united national economy — one interlocking system of labor, trade and investment.”

Remember this truck the next time you think about the battle brewing between American populism and “elitism.”
