Fact of the matter, is the world has drastically changed in the last 45 years. Heavy manufacturing left in the 70s and 80s. Automation and technology has replaced countless other jobs. The world has changed and not enough people have adapted, especially those middle aged folks.

This is already a great country! In fact, many politicians (including many Republicans) often refer to it as "the greatest country in the world." When did we stop being great? Let me guess, 2008?

It just seems to me that Trump is playing to the lowest common denominator with that slogan.

We are a GREAT country, thanks to the hard work and sacrifice of the WW2 generation. That was a time when we were admired and respected by other countries. We had pride, we had a work ethic. We built products in the USA......


Being great again has NOTHING to do with the racist attitudes of the 50's and 60's. We have become weak, our youth doesn't want to work, everyone expects handouts and no one is willing to take responsibility for themselves and quit blaming everyone else for everything that is wrong in our lives....We don't stand up to our enemies anymore, we draw lines in the sand that we don't enforce and for the first time in our lives Isis has brought a foreign war to our soil.

Default America is Great!

We have real issue and our economy has been chipped away for decades. What's makes America Great is our ability to change course.


All American's want great things for America. This is not the issue. The Issue is the path and which Candidate can right the ship.


More the same or direction Action?

Trump is referring to on going wars, soldiers sent to foreign lands to fight for other men, debt to China for cheap crap, immigrants receiving better care and welfare that our vets do not get, illegals and refugees brought here, made instant citizens to vote Democrat........ get it now?


Bernie supporters believe the system is rigged, talk to them......Bernie was convinced to step down and you know it!

If you work hard, you will also have a great life. I'm sorry that some of you make poor life decisions, but that is all on you. No, Trump will not help you. Sorry.

In my lifetime, personal liberties have declined. With government now making the choice for us, from the day I was born. Nothing Great about that.

The govt has NO place in my life's choices, I'm going on 78. Never living in another country, I believe America is pretty darn GOOD. Not perfect? What is Perfect? Death is probably the greatest Perfect Peace.

I just about gagged when Trump went off making it great Again and how many jump on this with that joker.

It IS a rigged-game, corrupt and immoral as they come. If YOUR bread is getting buttered, yes, you probably think Murrrrca is the bee's knees.

More and more Idiocracy = less and less competitive = more and more outsourcing.

I wonder if CD really stands for Clearly Delusional!!!

I would like to see your face when you see the increase in taxes that will come with Democrats if we didn't have people in place to stop them. I remember Jimmy Carter and how hard it was to manage when others were feeding their dogs with meat from the human food trays because you couldn't buy dog food with food stamps.
