America’s Majority Party
We’re down to one political party: The American Majority Party.
Before Biden became president, the American electorate was divided into three major voting blocs: Democrats/31%; Republicans/25% and Independents/41%. That adds up to 97% of the electorate leaving fringe groups like the Green Party and Libertarians to carve up the remaining 3%.
Hyper-partisanship has crippled Congress for decades and left American voters with no effective representation. They find themselves in the modern equivalent of the 1768 dilemma, “Taxation Without Representation.” It was tantamount to tyranny and ushered in the Revolutionary War.
Until Biden’s election, the House of Representatives would pass bills that would die in the Senate resulting in zero legislation for voters.
Net result: Zero representation.
Biden changed the core nature of American politics by subordinating political parties to the overarching will of the people. He doesn’t craft policy based on Democratic or Republican dogma. He focuses on the needs of all Americans absent political orthodoxy.
“What’s best for America”, and “What’s best for Americans”, are the twin themes that imbue Biden‘s policy strategy.
The American Rescue Plan, the Infrastructure Plan and the American Families Plan total almost $6 Trillion in cost and ALL are opposed by ALL Republican legislators.
Importantly, ALL are supported by a significant majority of Americans.
The Majority American Party is behind these plans and it’s emerging as the political force of the future.
Andrew Yang, candidate for Mayor of New York, said it best, “The magic of Joe Biden is that everything he does becomes the new reasonable.”
After four years in crazy town, the presence of “reasonable”is welcomed.
Hunger for 54 million starving Americans (the 54M who are food insecure) isn’t a political issue.
Affordable Healthcare for millions of America’s vulnerable poor is not a political issue.
Having a job and earning a livable wage are not political issues.
And the challenges being met by these plans go on and on.
Reasonableness isn’t political.
Hope isn’t political.
Caring for and encouraging one another isn’t political. It’s been absent the past four years and what’s best about America is back.
