A couple years back I did a report on populism, more spefically, The wizard of oz being a populist parable.
Nonetheless, I consider populism to share more beliefs with socialism than with capitalism. I think its hard to compare being moderate to populism
just because some beliefs are shared. Im sure the democratic party and the republican party share many common beliefs as well.
I believe the majority of people in either mainstream party in the U.S. share these common sense concerns, its just unfortunate that the leaders of
these parties choose to ignore those common sense concerns once voted into office.
