Then the slogan is dumb. And it’s not unpatriotic to say so.


We aren't talking about slogans as much as talking about whether or not America was a great country in the world. Generally speaking, I think a country that has reached super power status would tend to qualify for a variety of reasons, and yes, that means China can lay claim to great nation status as well as Russia, the UK, France.

Understand that doesn't mean I would call all of them great for the same reasons. But they are what I would consider great in their various ways ... as is (and was) the US. But the US was greater than it has been recently.

You want great in the sense of perfection, and no nation anywhere qualifies on that front, not even the much loved myth of the Scandinavian social democracies.

America has always been a work in progress. It’s never been “great” (at least for everyone) and it hasn’t totally sucked for everyone either.

Some good, some bad — always has been and always will be room for improvement.

“Make America better” is a slogan I could buy off on.

“Make America Great Again” is dumb.

so was america greater when it was competing with the Soviet Union for world superpower status, or when it was the world's only superpower??
and, just how has trump made it greater when all of our allies have become convinced that they can't rely on the US and it seems that Trump is laying waste to our role as world leader???

Hahaha thats hilarious. Perhaps you should read some papers on how happy Canadian citizens are compared to yours.


You know what makes me unhappy? Freezing.

You know what Canada is? Freezing.

On the whole you should be glad I don't live there. I'd make your tiny little country unhappy all by myself. You have so few people that I alone would be enough to hamper your happiness average. There's just not enough Canadian beer to change that.

If you fine people would stop barking at us for wanting to enforce our borders, we might have less homeless people.

"Oh, but you want to send those people back to their countries they came from illegally?! BUT THAT'S RACIST!"

Hush up and go get your fake eye-browed pretty boy to take some of them in. We'd be happy to send a few your way.

That's the worst comparison actually. War doesnt make a country great it makes them weak if they have to use their military to gain respect rather than doing it the honorable way. But just for the record we burned down the white house when you yanks tried to invade the great white north.lol

Best worst
I said it is the only one that matters because it is.
I don't think we dropped abombs to "get respect".
We dropped abombs to enforce our will.

Must be the frog in ya croaking about "we".

Our homeless are in better shape than a lot of people in actual #holes.
Our poor have electricity ,running water ,Obama phones, and access to education.
Your puny nation cant even hold its cup....it currently resides in our nations capital.
We stole your national pastime because we are so great.

So you want to ignore the fact that groups of people were marginalized, and that America wasn’t very great for them.

Okay. Cuomo didn’t want to ignore that. Which was the point of his quote.


I'm half Apache, and half Scottish. My Indian genes think America was great before the pilgrims showed up.

Men would hunt and fish all day while the women did all the work. There was a bonfire and singing and dancing and people tripping on payote evey night.
Ahhh... the good ole days.

Can we go back to that?
