Make America Great Again ?!

As you know, this is Trump’s slogan.  What does he mean exactly when he says this?  When was America great?  When did we lose our greatness?

Make America Great Again…like when we took the land (& killed) of the indigenous population?

Make America Great Again….like when we enslaved (& killed) Africans?

Make America Great Again…like when the South was willing to lose the lives of over a million people in the Confederacy to protect the slave economy?

Make America Great Again…like when we dropped nuclear bombs on Japan?

Make America Great Again…like when our schools were segregated?

Make America Great Again…like when over a million people were killed in the Vietnam war?

Make America Great Again…like when civil rights leaders were being assassinated?

Make America Great Again…like when women weren’t allowed to vote?

Make America Great Again…like when we went to war with Iraq?

Make America Great Again…like when police killed over 1,000 people in 2015?

There are a lot of great things about America, but we are not great (yet) but are getting better over time.  We continue to iterate as a country, which is the greatest thing going for us.  Our past is painful, let’s never forget it but learn from it and build towards a better country.
