Debbie Downer Conservatives

republican-logoDonald Trump and his fellow Republican candidates insist we need to “make America great again.” China, Japan and Mexico are exploiting our good will, stealing our jobs and our ideas and our money. Russia, Ukraine and the Middle East prove us fools on the world stage.

But America never stopped being great. We have rich culture and wide freedoms. We’re wizards at industry and technology. We’re the world’s biggest philanthropy machine and lead rescue force. We’re a cornucopia of medical advances. A huge number of our citizens, paid and volunteer, are working to bring health, prosperity and dignity to everybody.

Democratic candidates have tended to debate specific problems like banksters, campaign finance, jobs and education without discounting all our collective achievements so crassly.

Do Republicans … hate America?
