Capturing My Thoughts: “Who are We”

From a question by Cannoneer No. 4 made here:

When I say “We”, I mean US Citizens and Future US Citizens aligned with the core beliefs of the USA (e.g. All are created equal; natural right to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness; GOV exist only at the consent of the people, not the other way around) and accepting the governing social contract(e.g. a republic; separation of powers; federalism; US Constitution as the highest law of the land; equality for all before the the law).

There has to be a better way of saying this. What am I missing?

Thoughts/Help would be appreciated!

  1. Your version of “we” sounds a lot like “Patriots.”

    2 major political parties, 2 so-called “wings” on the linear political spectrum so many find so convenient. On which side of the aisle do “we”find many fellow travellers?

  3. Corrected. Interesting URL. Need to digest.

  4. Bruckner’s description of guilty white Euroweenies works pretty well for guilty white liberals with American passports.

    As “We” & “Us” proceed to ever more precisely define “Ourselves”, are “We” not also defining the “Other” / “They” / “Them” / Not “Us” that “We” seek to more effectively oppose?

  5. Try this as a definition of “Us”

    <blockquote". . . entrepreneurial frontiersmen, Cultural Revolutionaries, American Exceptionalists, libertarians, people who want to be left the hell alone, Gulchers, Constitutionalists, Appleseeds, bitter clingers, Christians, and Patriots, plus . . . blue collar men, married women, suburban marrieds, small business owners, independent professionals, and others out of the endless PC-status game and status wars
