But America is already great.
Great at war mongering
Great at spending on military equipment
Great at jailing people for victimless crimes
Great at waging war against its own people
Great at militarizing its police


And the greatest at fooling well meaning leftists to ensure all of those great things happen...while greatly eroding the things that were great.

Great leftist proverb:

Great are those who blind faithfully destroy all walls around them, for they need no house!


No idea what you are saying.

ever heard of this one?

Great Right Wing Proverb:

When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the *****. You can do anything.

Make America Great Again = Make Being White & Male Mean Something Again.

Sad to say if being white and male is all you've got - you ain't got much.


More like 'Make Judeo-Christian, Western-European Values prominent again'

Because let's face it, those values have shown to be the key to individual liberty and success.


The Chinese seem to be doing pretty good. The Indians (Hindus). Delusional - a bit.


The Chinese are not doing well. The Chinese government is doing well, the people not so much.

No, it was 'Thou shall not murder.' Killing in self-defense or the defense of others, or in times of war is not a sin.



Really? Because I'm pretty sure that the actual context was that if someone strikes you in the cheek, turn your face and offer the other cheek. Don't bust out a gun and put a cap in their ass.

Not to mention lines about the meek inheriting the Earth, opposed to going out and fighting.


Okay... so in your world being smacked on the cheek is grounds for self defense in a life and death situation. Really?

It is possible to be meek yet still defend yourself. It's not all one or another.

Argumentum ad passions or "Appeal to emotion"..

It is an emotional appeal to everyone that has suffered under the rapid pace of change both technological and economic.

When was America great for you? "You" being principally the voters in several districts needed to carry PA, WI and Michigan.

Pre-90's Coal Mining and Manufacturing.

Since everyone knows that time can not reverse itself and technological advancement displacing manufacturing workers and coal miners will continue regardless of who is President the second lie was to blame brown people.



Time and technological change cannot be reversed, but we can decide what kind of society we want to live in, that's still possible. We can reject ideologies that put money above people.

No there's not, there's no nuance there. According to Christian teachings it's wrong to turn to violence. In a life and death situation you either die peacefully, or run. Jesus gave his life to prove that point.

I could go into a long drawn out reply, but suffice it to say you are not a subject matter expert on Christian dogma and philosophy. Your statement about Christ's sacrifice made that abundantly clear, as if any other proof were needed.
