US: Since he left the White House on January 20 for his new life in Palm Beach, we have not heard much from former President Trump. Unarmed since the loss of his Twitter account and facing an indictment in which Democrats relied heavily on his comments and social media reports to state their case, it has been an excellent strategy to remain silent.

Then the death of conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh brings Trump out of hiding. He also issued a scathing statement following the indictment, in which he declared war on Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Minority Leader (R-Ky.) And he promised to challenge MAGA challengers against the positions of the To support GOP in the next series of elections.

The civil war within the Republican Party between the foundation and the Trump bloc sparked discussions about a third political party to accommodate the separation. FiveThirtyEight weighed in, arguing that this was unlikely to happen. But it was also unlikely at one point that Trump would become president. Now he has expressed support for the idea and suggested that he call his party the Patriot Party.

Against the indictment’s backdrop, it is ridiculous that Trump’s name is associated with the term “patriot,” let alone a party with the name. But considering the idea of ​​a Patriot party is a rewarding thought exercise. This is especially important at a time when Democrats and Republicans regularly accuse each other of undermining the national interest.

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the definition of a patriot is “someone who loves and supports his or her country.” It’s definitely vague. What defines love and support? And especially in these difficult times, how important should be placed in the way that love and support manifests?

Considering the uprising at the Capitol on January 6, the meaning is the right answer.

Since it is a fantasy to think partisans can agree on a definition of ‘love and support,’ I argue that the answer actually lies in public sentiment. For an inherently so malleable term, it makes sense that it is the people’s choice to love and support the country. Through elections, citizenship directs political decision-making. Their opinion is what informs campaigns and government decisions.

It follows that a patriotic act is an acceptable policy that appeals to the largest number of Americans. And by definition, the Democrats are today’s Patriot Party. It’s not even close.

An overview of critical democratic positions matters.

President Biden scored highs in his first month. Its approval rating stands at 54 percent in the RealClearPolitics average, and its distinctive $ 1.9 billion COVID-19 stimulus proposal is favored by 83 percent of Americans. This includes the majority of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. Nearly two-thirds of Americans think Biden is doing an excellent job with coronavirus outbreaks. Although 60 percent believe the impact is too slow, 73 percent believe the process was fair, including the majority of low- and low-income Americans.

The fight against COVID-19 has become the dominant discussion in health care, but it is essential to emphasize that ObamaCare’s support has increased since Biden entered service. The latest poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation finds 55 percent support, the highest law score since it was signed a decade ago. Twenty million Americans have coverage due to the Affordable Care Act and the Biden White House has just extended the enrollment period for health insurance to give more Americans access to affordable quality care.

“We’re back.” These were President Biden’s words last week about his decision to reintroduce the Paris climate agreement. World leaders breathed a sigh of relief that the US would no longer tip climate issues, but they were not the only ones. Americans are also relieved. Nearly three out of five support the move. Two-thirds want the federal government to do more to combat climate change and, most importantly, 60 percent see climate change as a ‘major’ threat, compared to just 44 percent a decade ago. The same can be said of Biden’s decision to rejoin the World Health Organization.

The same can be said of Biden’s decision to rejoin the World Health Organization.

There is unanimous agreement that a federal minimum wage of $ 7.25 is not enough. Eighty-three percent of Americans say minimum wage earners need an increase, with 35 percent supporting $ 13 to $ 15 per hour, 29 percent at $ 10 to $ 12, and just 13 percent supporting more than $ 15 per hour. It remains to be seen whether an increase in wages will make the COVID-19 package, and whether it will stay at the $ 15 level that the progressive champion is – but the GOP position that the federal minimum wage is not an increase not required is frantic out of step with Americans.

In terms of immigration, Biden’s policies are in line with public sentiment. Sixty-five percent support the restart of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood) program, 53 percent want to stop wall-building on the southern border, 52 percent want to end the travel ban on some Muslim countries, and 56 percent want to end it. Non-citizens included in the US census. Furthermore, nearly 70 percent prefer a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and 64 percent support stimulus tests for households with mixed immigration status.

Other positions support my argument, such as support for access to abortion, albeit with certain restrictions, and that the laws governing the sale of firearms should be stricter.

I have long lamented that Republicans have successfully portrayed themselves as the party of service and love for the country with stumbling blocks over the knee during the National Anthem and the number of flags on stage during an event. There is an evergreen opportunity for Democrats to talk about their service, of which they have done more since the Capitol attack.

But there is an even more fantastic opportunity to make noise about our patriotism from our policy perspective. It does not matter if you stand for the national anthem if your agenda harms Americans’ chances of success. This is especially true as we face unprecedented challenges.
