What does Make America Great Again mean?

When President Trump says, Make America Great Again. You can tell who the racists are in the country. They are the ones that claim he wants to take America back to the days of slavery. They think President Trump wants America to be as it was back in the day before women were allowed to vote, own land, hold a job, or anything else. To those of us with an average IQ, we know what is meant by Make America Great Again. It is about getting our Status back as the premiere Economic power in the world. We would not enjoy having China as the economic superpower in the world, and the policies of these knuckle-dragging idiots that voted for Hillary and refuse to accept the election results would do just that. They are not interested in what is good for you and I. They are only interested in making sure they are in power and control of our lives.

It means to take America back to the day before the disastrous policies of Regressive lefty Presidents like Bush Sr. Clinton, Bush Jr. and most importantly Obama. 30 years of bad trade deals, attacking our energy sectors, stunting business growth, and destroying the middle class for political gain.

These same regressives that are saying that President Trump is racist, misogynist, bigoted, and whatever else they attribute to him are showing us their character flaws. They tell us that the economy was great during Obama's term, well under 2% GDP, each year is not great. They point to the stock market and say bullshit like I made great money during that eight years. Well, Obama presided over a Stock market bump of 8500 pts in 8 years. President Trump has had a 7500 bump in under two years, and he did it without printing trillions of dollars every year to add to our debt! President Trump has made America an energy exporter. We are close to taking over the #1 spot for oil production and export. That was something that Obama and his role said could never happen. Manufacturing is coming back strong, almost every manufacturing job lost during Obama's eight years of terror on the middle class is back. The coal industry has nearly recouped the 57K jobs they lost during Obama's term too. Auto manufacturers are getting the NAFTA deal renegotiated. China is no longer taking advantage of our country, and the tariffs have not harmed any American business that deals with American goods. No, I do not feel bad for those companies that were buying their products out of our country to sell here.

They claim that President Trump added 1.5 trillion dollars to our national debt, in under two years. They ignore the 10 trillion in debt that Obama racked up over eight years. They also ignore all the data from the IRS saying that we have taken in more money each quarter and are on track to pay off most of that 1.5 trillion deficit that the Regressives in Congress forced through by using the same process that Obama wanted to use for his entire eight years.

This November we have a chance to reset congress. IF we vote in democRATs, we will stop the progress made on getting America and Average Americans back on their feet. In the last year, Americans have seen their incomes rise almost 7K a year on average. The median salary was around 50K after eight years of Obama policies. It is now 57K and growing. So, if you do not enjoy the extra money in your checks (and I know you all got one) and you want to lose those tax cuts you got then, by all means, vote for the democrat in the election. Want to make those tax cuts permanent? Want to continue to help your friends and family in the Unions (UAW for example) or get better-paying jobs than flipping pizzas and burgers? Then vote for the candidates that will work with the President to help our country get back on the tracks to Economic powerhouse status.

As I wrap up here, Do yourself a favor do not take what CNN, MSNBC, ABC, FOX, CBS, NBC, or PBS says as fact. Go to where they get their stories from Reuters and Associated Press. If you get there early enough in the day, you can get the story before all the talking heads get their hands on the stories and spin them to fit the media narrative. Or if you watch those channels keep it in mind that their goal is not to inform you of the facts, but to spin a narrative that fits the global elite's agenda of enslaving the population to their rule.

1. It means "MAGGA. WAGGA. MAGGA WAGGA-WAGGA. WHINNING!"

 

It's a slogan. A rallying-cry. Previous users of such slogans would also erect giant posters of themselves in places such as Red Square, Tienanmin Square, and the Washington Mall

Fortunately for you, Donald John Trump is no authoritarian. Just bear in mind the origin of such slogans.

"Doubleplusgood magga-wagga duckspeak, Mister Smith. Plusgood benghazi. Wagga-wagga. Magga. #Winning!"

Ingsoc Newspeak, à la "1984" by George Orwell.

Hold rallies; sell hats; chant "LOCK. THEM. UP! UP! UP!" like the daily "Two Minutes' Hate" directed by "Big Brother" against "Enemy of the People" Emmanuel Goldstein.

"Doubleplusgood benghazi. Magga-wagga. #Winning!"

Ignorant babble.

39. It's relative. The big must not crush the small.

 

That's why America (the world?) does not now have **ONE** oil company: John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company. Combines are not allowed to restrain trade. Similarly, Big Business, Big Government, Big Labour, Big Lobby, can tilt the playing field and edge toward monopoly.

Otherwise, in any field there is potential for the strong to abuse their position and terrorize the weak.

This is not "picking winners and losers". Just preventing strongman rule.

It could be said that preventing barbarian hordes from burning villages and raping the women is infringing on the rights and liberties of Genghis Khan. But the villagers might like that.

48. The "soybeans turn to estrogen" trope is a neologism.

 

It's a false etymology, yet serves to reinforce the original high-school taunt.

Whole thing probably began in highschool bullying of the very gays SOY was first organized to combat.

The previous organization to SOY had an even funnier name than SOY and SOY-boyz:

P-FLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays):

"Fly your pee-flag?"... ..."Letting my pee-flag fly!" As if members had a flag on their pee-pee.

is it is not a universal concept.

Logos when applied to politics is always a mixed bag although it shouldnt be.

And I think most that see pathos in Trump have a strong sense of their own ethos. Most dont even consider the logos, just their own ethos before determining the correct path.

Historically "Happy Days Are Here Again" and "I Like Ike" both captured the public's affection, but since then most have been rather meh.

A master of branding came up with another really catchy brand. Not really surprising.

18. The individual perception of progress is definitely behind the fervor.

If unemployment was high, or the economy crashed those hats and rallies would disappear.

Tangible things like low unemployment, visible tax reduction to many have all lead to a positive mood among many in America. Those things override the screeching of the media over obscure parliamentary posturing, and the over the top tweet storms from the POTUS.

As long as the economy keeps chugging along them there red hats will be an everyday sight.

19. It is more than that, but yes the economy chugging along is helping.

When I talk to Union members, it is because they view the President fighting for them with the tariffs and renegotiation of the trade deals. NAFTA is a big deal to those union folks I have talked to, Talking to people in the energy sector, it is the President attempt to increase our production, reduce regulations, and sell our products to other countries (Telling Germany they should buy their Natural Gas from us and not Russia for example). Most of the people I talk to are happy he is taking on China and the tariffs. They see the way that China has behaved as negative towards their livelihood.

While all those ties to the economy overall, I do not think that if we hit a recession and things got tight, it would change much of the mood for quite a few years. As long as President Trump is out there fighting for those that were neglected by democRAT policies and regressive agenda items for the last 30 years.

Had a Gentlemen that I polled the other day tell me that he did not view President Trump as a Republican or Democrat. He considered him as that independent that ran with the one party that got his name on every ballot in the country. President Trump could have run as a democRAT, but we know how that would have worked with Hillary rigging the primary in her favor.

It is all of that and other things that make me shake my head at the emotional outbursts of regressives. You see many of their emotional outburst in this thread. President Trump is doing lots of positive things for the Average American, and that does not bode well for regressive politicians or the ass-backward voters that vote for them.

However, to truly make America great again we also need to revive respect for law enforcement and military.

Here are some historic presidential campaign slogans:
Don't swap horses in the middle of the stream.
Rejuvenated Republicanism
Patriotism, Protection and Prosperity
He kept us out of war.
Return to normalcy.
A chicken in every pot a car in every garage.
Peace and prosperity
For the future.
The stakes are too high for you to stay home.
He's making us proud again.
A leader for a change.
Are you better off than you were four years ago?
Its morning again in America.
A kinder, gentler nation.
Putting people first.
Real plans for real people
Change we can believe in.
