Make America Great Again… Donald Trump

D-Source 09/04/2016

Am I the only one who is irritated by Trump’s Campaign Slogan: “Let’s Make America Great Again..”?

Before reading this, I want to point out that I love this country! I am a loyal American who wouldn’t want to live in any other country in the world. There are, without a doubt, a lot of great things about this nation, today and we have a long way to go. But I look at how far we have come, as evidence of how far we can go. And my motto, adopted from my old Jr. High School Slogan is “Forward, Ever; Backward, never. However, Mr. Trump seems interested in taking us back….

And as he courts Black People and Hispanic People, he should recognize that this slogan represents a return to a glorious time in American History for Caucasians, that was far from glorious for anyone else.

What great American time does he speak of? The time the Native Americans were slaughtered and their land was systematically taken away from them? The time Black People were slaves or Serfs or the time we were being hung from random trees or the time we were being hosed down in the streets and dogs were being sicked on us and we were not allowed to vote or eat at certain places or maybe that time during the 60’s and 70’s when our kids attended segregated schools and we weren’t allowed to live where we wanted and were discriminated against in housing and financing and so on? Was it that great time when we rounded up all the Japanese Americans and put them in camps, the way the Nazi’s did the Jewish People?

You see, when he says he wants America to return to one of these great times in American History; I don’t get excited; I cringe and get worried and a little angry, even. Especially when he follows up this slogan with talk about banning entire groups of people, based on their religion, all while touting the Constitution, which clearly supports Freedom of Religion. And he has talked about rounding up Hispanics and shipping them out like old Nazi Germany, but, now, wants us to forget he ever said it.

So, he and his core supporters wonder why the polls show that his support among every group in America other than Older, Non-College Educated, White People, is in the single digits… We want to keep moving forward to a better kind of Greatness and are not interested in going back to that old kind of Greatness.
