Making America Great Again???
All of the GOP candidates are preaching the same gospel. They claim that America is in decline due to eight years of the Obama Administration. The only way to arrest the decline is to "throw the bums out" and put one of them in the White House. This article wrongly attributes the America in decline slogan solely to Donald Trump. It does, however, describe what it means to be a nation in decline and it shows why American is not in decline. One might say that we entered a period of relative stagnation around 2000, and well before Obama took office. The article also suggests many of things that might be done to counter stagnation. Most of the suggestions are not on the menu of the Republican candidates. They would oppose most of them.
