So if we are to see the Return of the American Identity, we must first agree on its definition. Americanism, in truth, is so diverse and chaotic, albeit successful, that it would be stupid to try to entirely quantify or manage it, so this is simply a search for those fundamental characteristics that we can unite behind as being American.

Consider these identifiers a humble start, please agree or not, and add your own, edit, or otherwise comment. thanks ~tdv
