  •  I think populism is somewhat... (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    synonymous with libertarianism.  There are left-wing libertarians like Dennis Kucinich and there are right-wing libertarians like Ron Paul.  Jimmy Carter was said to be a left-wing populist and St. Ronnie of Raygun was said to be a right-wing populist (although I think that characterization was wildly off the mark since he did not act at all that way once in office).  While Huey Long was a left-wing populist there would have been a number of differences between him and Kucinich--but then the times are different.  These terms tend to be plastic anyway.
