Did Khizr Khan take the constitution back for progressives when he waved it at Donald Trump at the Democratic Convention?
In the context of the presidential campaigns we asked our listeners: has this political season brought out a progressive patriotism in you?
"It’s not about loving your country just because it’s your country," Melanie from Montclair said. "As citizens we have the power to make real change."
Instead of chanting "U-S-A! U-S-A!" we asked our followers on Twitter for suggestions on other patriotic chants:
@BrianLehrer "One for all...All for one." Remember, E Pluribus unum.— Katie Kennedy (@chaskat35) August 9, 2016
@BrianLehrer instead of chanting "USA" we should start chanting the lyrics to Springsteen's entire "Born in the USA" album— Tim Donnelly (@timdonnelly) August 9, 2016
