There is political talk of "bringing America back". What year is this? Was America great before the 1920's and women could not vote? Was America great when we could hang a black man and the local sheriff helped hold him while he was tied? Was America great when we had slavery? Was America great when we had no child labor laws? Can someone tell me what time perdiod these politicians are referring to?

i dont know what donald trump means by that and honestly i dont know if i want to know what he means by that. Because america always had major problems, no rights for women, slavery, native American genocide, or tiny humans crawling around in machines and only get paid a dollar max. but i like your mindset you dont romanticize the past like many people i know, saying the infamous line, "i was born in the wrong generation" when people say that, i just feel like saying, do you like a lack of womens rights, little to no equality, genocide that seemed to be ok with people.
10 months ago i told an older gentleman that this generation has big plans and legalizing gay marriage was one of them. he said if gay marriage was legalized, it would be an abomination. (obviously he has never heard of ashley madison) you can imagine my happiness when it was legalized.2

I think America was at it's best when the natives still ruled the country. All of those "great" era's of America have always been fabricated by Pr & movies. Like the roaring 20's and the 1950's.
To be honest I only see a country as "Great" when there is equality for everybody, no racism, no sexism, and no poverty, freedom for everybody and no war. Can you think of any country that is like that? I sure can't.2
