Let’s Make America Great Again, just Like it was in…

8 Aug

Donald trump says that America is…and I quote, “A hell hole.” And that it is a country in decline and one seen as a disgrace across the globe, where we are figuratively “down on our knees” before the other industrialized nations of the world.

Is that how you see America? Would you like to go back to the glory days of 2001-2008 during the G.W. Bush administration? Or the Clinton years of 1993-2000. Or Bush the 1st from 1988-1992. Do the Reaganomics 80s bring a big smile to your face or perhaps the Jimmy Carter years? Maybe Ford and Nixon make you wax nostalgic? The Vietnam 60s perhaps?

We’ve already got the world’s largest military and half of the world expects us to protect them from the other half. You’ll find our corporations’ money in banks all over the world and foreign workers working at low wages in practically every country around the world in order to make stuff that we Americans can’t do without.

We’re 5% of the world’s population and we use 30% of the world’s goods and resources. That’s pretty damn great of us isn’t it? We have over 300 million guns for over 300 million citizens. That’s pretty magnanimous of us is it not? We spend billions of dollars to fight the global drug war…and we won’t even stop using most of the drugs ourselves…That’s greatly hypocritical of us wouldn’t you say? We use robotic weaponry to enhance our citizen soldiers fighting ability and can and do rain destruction from the skies abroad and at home whenever we wish…that’s greatly frightening I think.

I’ve often written about how the USA lags behind other nations when it comes to things like eradicating child poverty, or feeding the hungry, or providing affordable and adequate child care, or healthcare or housing, or rights for women, minorities, and the elderly…

But Donald Trump and theĀ  Republican party have absolutely no plans to improve any of those problems…

So if those are not problems that need fixin’ then what’s the plan to get us off of our knees, make us look more respectable to the rest of the world and restore our greatness? Unleashing nuclear weapons perhaps? Taking us back to 1945 greatness?

I’m just curious to see what others think about the greatness of America and what’s lacking in our country today that needs fixing by bringing back something from years gone by. How would you restore America’s luster? More rights? More war? More tax cuts? More middle class jobs and wage increases? More regulation of women’s bodies? More religion? More secular freedom?

Just curious…
