Like a lot of people, I’m interested in the upcoming Presidential election. One thing that doesn’t seem to get addressed at all is Trump’s slogan of “Make America Great Again.” I see that and think “What?!” Make America Great Again? Really? Let’s see: The United States is the greatest Empire the world has ever seen. As far as I can tell, it’s still going strong, with its tentacles everywhere and in everything. It also is the only Super Power in the world, able to squash any other country it wants with its military might. I’m not saying any of this is innately good, but chanting that America is somewhere in the sewer and has gone totally downhill in the years of the Obama presidency is totally ludicrous.
