What MAGA really means
In a recent email to me, a friend opined: “The idea that Make America Great Again is referring to a time in our past of civil inequality is just another false narrative of the left (one of their favorite tactics).”
He added, “If a sports team had this slogan, it wouldn’t mean creating a team like they had 50 years ago, it would mean creating an organization that could be successful in the current system. If a business like IBM had the slogan, it wouldn’t mean they were looking to make PCs from the 1980s, it would mean they were trying to create a world-class organization to be successful in today’s markets.
“While making the country great again could refer to reaffirming some of the values and morals of the greatest generation, it certainly doesn’t mean going backward. It means making the United States the greatest country on earth today and into the future.”
We can all debate what “greatness” means, but in the end our Founding Fathers laid the foundation and it’s those principles that should be upheld by the president.
Of course, going backward would actually mean going back to civil inequality — a situation that was perpetuated by the Democrats, not the Republicans. But again, the liberals have created the false narrative that it was the Republicans. – Steve Dickler Hilton Head Island
