In other words, American Nationalism is good because it is the only form of Nationalism on earth that prides itself in citizen self-control, which is to say, government by fixed law, rather than government by ever changing regimes of mere human beings.
In the 18th Century, Adam Smith wrote about the natural tendency of people to be moral, through "Natural Law" if not religious practice, and the vital importance of cultural morality in the freeing of the Market. Capitalism operates best in a moral environment. Immorality always restricts the free market, and is always detrimental to Capitalism.
And, in the 19th Century, Tocqueville wrote about the direct relationship between the spectacular American economic engine and the Christian "goodness" of her population. That national "goodness" and national economic power were co-dependent, and that continually growing national economic wealth depended entirely upon citizen freedom, which itself depended entirely upon high cultural morality.
They were right. These truths do not change. By the grace of God, America was designed around them, whether the authors of the Constitution were cognizant of that fact or not.
The American Constitution establishes the civil rights of the moral citizenry and protects those citizen rights from itself - from the citizenry's own government - and establishes itself as the supreme law of the land. Not the men currently in the government, but the written law that establishes and organizes the government, rules the nation. The three co-equal branches are mere temporary custodians of the Constitution, which is sovereign. Custodians are not rulers, they are servants.
America is ruled by law, which can only be legislated through the representation of the people, guided and restrained only by the Constitution. The Constitution rules.
But this can only work so long as the people are highly moral.
Police are only necessary to handle the "outliers" and the outlaws who are a distinct small minority among a highly moral people. Most crimes are occasional aberrations in behavior, where they are not committed by habitual criminals. The less immoral behavior there is, the smaller and less intrusive - and cheaper - government may be. But as immorality becomes rampant, or the norm, the larger and more intrusive - and expensive - government must become, in order to merely maintain social order. At some point, citizen immorality will call down upon itself a police-state situation.
And that is what our current Marxocrat Party is promoting, through programs sponsoring and championing every form of moral depravity, and with full bipartisan support of the "Establishment" Republicrat Party. Capitalism - a Free Market - fails in a police state. So does the Constitution. The end of Capitalism and the end of the Constitution is the ultimate goal of the Obamunist Regime and the Marxocrat Party.
We have written about American Patriotism, but that is not what this is about. And, we have addressed why America, as Declared and Constituted, should be explicitly excluded from the declared Catholic heresy of Americanism. What we have promoted here is a return to American Constitutional Absolutism, which our Political Parties are conspiring to eliminate. Elimination of American Constitutional Rule is the supreme goal of the Marxocrat Party, with the full bipartisan support of the Republicrat Party.
What triggered these thoughts was the rise of a fierce Populist Nationalism in opposition to these trends, successfully capitalized on and increased by the candidacy of Donald Trump. The fear is that Trump may turn out to be a Hitler or a Mussolini, who rode to ultimate power through Populism and Nationalism in similar turbulent, economically troubled times. In the presence of the utter failure of anyone to stop the obvious purposeful destruction of America, Trump has grown and is growing this Popular Nationalism to a fever pitch.
It was all right there, out in the open, and Trump alone tapped into it, with all opponents having either a D or an R next to their names, and Trump thumbing his nose at both Parties. And his popularity exploded.
So what's the difference between The Donald, Hitler and Mussolini? Well, both Hitler and Mussolini were men of the Left, which is to say, Marxism and anti-Capitalism. They were ideologically Marxist. Trump has no ideology; he has no principles; he is purely and exclusively Capitalist and Selfist. I was on board with him for a time, because no one else was stopping the national destruction, and he seemed determined to stop it, or at least stop the worst of it.
Could he become another Hitler or Stalin? Or could he become a real American Constitutionalist? Flip a coin. He is no ideologue; quite the opposite. He has no discernible principles, other than deal making and winning. But, at least to begin with, he does not hate Capitalism, he does not hate America, he does not hate us, the American citizenry, and he does not exist to harm the nation, the Constitution, or the citizenry. That cannot be said of the Political Parties.
It is just as likely that he could morph into a Constitutionalist as that he could morph into a Fascistic Dictator. With Obamunism and the Marxocrat Party, we know what the plan is: Marxist Dictatorship. And we now know that the Republicrat Party is in full bipartisan cooperation with achieving that goal
Trump lost my support when he proclaimed that he could and would deal with the Marxocrats in their unending goal to destroy us as a Constitutional Republic. If he doesn't recognize that clear goal, then he is too stupid to be President, and if he does recognize it, then he is evil.
I am left with Ted Cruz, and praying that he is what he purports himself to be. Everyone else is too bound to the totally corrupted Parties.
So what does all this say about American Nationalism?
America, as Declared and as Constituted, may be the best, and maybe even the only, nation on earth worthy of high Popular Nationalism.
But only as originally Declared and Constituted.
All you have to do is read the Declaration and read the Constitution to see that this is true. The very idea of America is a lowly citizen's dream come true. The citizens are sovereign, not the government. The government serves rather than rules. All, from the President on down, stand equal before the law, which is the Constitution itself.
Who else can say it?
There is nothing wrong and everything right with teaching our children the Pledge of Allegiance. There is nothing wrong and everything right with standing for the National Anthem. There is nothing wrong and everything right with removing your hat when the American Flag goes by. The very idea of America, as One Nation Under God, is absolutely right.
American Pride and America Nationalism have won our wars, from the beginning of the nation. Men of valor have shed their blood, willingly, voluntarily, to preserve the Constitution.
Consider why all the valorous men serving today, and throughout our history, are sworn to protect, not the land, not the people, not the government, not any King, but the Constitution. It is the Constitution that makes us what we are. It is the Constitution that makes America what she is.
And the Parties are cooperating to take the Constitution out of existence.
At this moment in time, Ted Cruz appears to be the best, most consistent and most tested champion of the Constitution in contention for the Presidency. Pray that he may prove to be what he appears to be, which is a man of high Christian and Constitutional Principle.
And please pray that he wins.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life. Please God, and live forever.

Special thanks to Bill Beinlich for pointing us to this major expose:
The Donald is not satisfied with the mere Presidency of the USA; he's decided to run for Pope. Click the image for the whole story.
We could do worse than The Donald The First for Pope; then again, maybe we already have done worse. The Donald has already promised to bring Christmas back; maybe he will promise to make God great again.
Can he win? Can he do a better job? Can he make the Church HUGE? Perhaps.
Who am I to judge?
If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

The Political Parties Pages
George Washington warned of the danger of the rise of Political Parties, and their inevitably destructive influence on good government. He was right. We are now ruled, not by our Constitution, which is no longer recognized as the supreme law of the land. We are now ruled by the Parties, and by the owners of the Parties, who comprise America's New Ruling Class. They who now own and operate all three branches of American Government.
Damn the Delegates, and Damn the Party, but Not the Two Best Candidates. It is the Delegate System, and the Party System, that Trick Us and Diabolically Divide Us.
Unconstitutional Party Delegates Unconstitutionally Picking Party Nominees. Unconstitutional Party Delegates of Unconstitutional Parties Unconstitutionally deciding who gets to run for President.
Unifying Hatred pulls the Political Parties together in Bipartisan Cooperation. As time goes on our two main Parties have less that divides them, as they agree more and more on varying kinds of Unifying Hatred.
The Rampant Unconstitutionism in Marxocrat Party Positions. Chris Matthews' question of Trump re punishing women for getting abortions puts Leftist Unconstitutionism on open public display.
The Political Party System that Runs America Despite the American Constitution. Cruz's Pro-Constitution agenda, and Rush's Anti-Liberal/Democrat Party agenda, aren't going anywhere while the Political Party System Itself Still Exists.
On Democratization out of Common Sense and Liberty, and into Marxism. Democratization out of the American Republic and into Marxism relies on the prerequisite educational assassination of simple common sense.
There is nothing wrong and everything right with American Nationalism. American Nationalism: fierce pride in America as Declared and Constituted; the exact opposite of Nationalism combined with Marxism-Socialism-Communism, Democracy, Monarchy, Theocracy or Dictatorship.
Governing by Phony Crisis, and Doubling Down to Grow Government. In the Governing by Phony Crisis scam, no crisis ever gets solved; they only grow, and multiply, and Grow Government.
Party Politics: Treachery and Betrayal of the Citizenry and the Constitution. The Ruling Elites are so steeped in their sly Treachery and Betrayal, so into themselves, so Certain, so broken from actual reality that they still do not understand Trump's continuing rise to power.
We're all looking for the Candidate who might fix our Anti-American Court. The next President might get to appoint four new Justices; that's all well and good, but why don't we even think about Impeachment for the majority of them right now?
Trump and Palin: Why are they considered to be the incompatible "Odd Couple"? If there's an incompatible "Odd Couple" it is the Tea Party and the Republicrat Party, not Trump and Palin, both of whom fully intend to stop exactly what we the people want stopped.
Replacing Scalia calls us to Restore American Constitutionalism.
Replacing Scalia is not enough; his Spirit calls us to Restore the
Constitution to its rightful place as the Supreme Law of the Land.
The Crony Capitalists who enrich the Capitalist Communists in our government. Crony Capitalists buy the Politicians who favor them with subsidies and favored tax breaks, and keep raising taxes to get richer and richer and richer.
All the secretly Capitalist Communists in America's Marxocrat Party. The Corrupt Crony Capitalist Communists getting filthy rich while pushing Marxist-Socialism on rest of the nation.
Fag Power: Owning and running more of the Church, and more of America. On some of Marxism's earliest created and exploited splinter groups now becoming the dominant exploiters and owners and drivers of culture.
Presenting America's new rulers: The Political Parties. The Constitution is now dead. What we have in its place is government of the people by the Parties for the Parties.
Legally Destroying America, through Defining Treason Down. American Political Parties are swiftly dismantling Constitutional government, having first defined treason down to the point of non-existence.
Political Parties: Redirecting allegiance away from the nation. Political Parties demand first obedience to the Party, not to the Constitution, slowly poisoning the nation.
Two Party Treason: Marxist Democrats Vs. Big Government Republicans. If both political Parties violate the Constitution in different ways, what we have is two Party treason.
Recognizing the Bipartisan or Nonpartisan Treason Destroying Civilization. The seductive desire for brotherly peaceful cooperation corrupts the world through nonpartisan treason.
Imagining a No Party America, with political Parties outlawed. When Political Parties oppose or do not defend the Constitution it is time for a No Party America.
New Way American Politics: Restoring and Advancing Cultural Americanism. A New Way of doing our Politics after anathematizing Political Parties, Marxism, Islam and Globalism.
Current Democratic Party platform reveals anti-Semitic streak among Liberals. In their voting, their speechifying, and in the slant of their controlled mainstream media reporting, the current Democratic Party Platform is made clear to all observers.
The Confederate Flag is also the Democrat Party Flag. Surprise. It's the Democrat Party Flag. "Democrat" is Synonymous with "Confederate", and should be used interchangeably.
Crony-Catholicism? Really? The USCCB is advancing Obamunism? Say it ain't so, Joe! It's bad enough that we now have so many Marxified Bishops, but now they actually act against the faith?
Has the USCCB morphed into the Catholicrat Party with it's own political agenda? Our Democrat Party is now Maxocrat; our Republican Party is now Republicrat; has our USCCB gone Catholicrat?
The Republicrat Liars: Cooperating in the Destruction of America. All Marxocrats always lie; therefore, Republicrat Liars are the most treacherous liars.
Stupid Political Arguments: False Premises and Talking In Circles. Presenting the stupid political arguments of our Marxist Democrats, always initiated and publicly argued for them by their News Media.
Feeding of Democratized Reality, inevitably ending in Loss of all Credibility. Scientific Consensus = Democratized Reality = Propagandized "Truth" = Falsehood espoused by believing fools.
Obamunist Assassins: Could pre-planned assassinations bring him back to power? Does a President of a Capitalist Christian nation, who was raised by Communists and educated by Moslems, really intend to permanently leave office?
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
