38-year-old Suraj Patel harnesses the frustration of his generation toward those who have held office for decades.

His fellow Patel’s in Gujarat were also frustrated with the politicians of their generation a few decades ago, so they brought in Modi and hopefully are now enjoying the damage their actions caused.

Something other than Hindu nationalist politics? Almost certainly, given that he’s an American running for an American political office and this article is about politics in the United States.

“I think the combination of him just spending all his time, every speech, relitigating 2020. Voters typically look forward. They don’t look backward,” he said.

That's not the reality.

The US does need a new, and familiar voice.

The first president America had in decades who actually accomplished anything for the country is needed more than ever.

Trump will be back.

Most of the US Patels are supporters of Modi and big time overseas fundraisers of the BJP. This is more true of the first generation immigrants who maintain close ties to their country of birth so hopefully a second generation immigrant would have developed his own independent outlook.

But I am always a bit suspicious of these people who have prospered due to the Western liberal values in their adopted nations but still support right wing bigotry in the country they or their parents came from.

Trump will be back.

Maybe he'll even repair the 35,000 crumbling bridges or a healthcare system for all Americans. 40 million can't afford any.
