What Makes America Great?





It's that time of year again.

Nostalgia for the 'good old days' and so I'm going to look back and point out some things that I recall from 'good old days'.


  • America is great when we invest in the education of our citizens, so our high schools and colleges are the envy of the world. 
  • America is great when college is affordable with Pell Grants funding the education of low-income families.
  • America is great when 'free speech' is words, not money.
  • America is great when living people have more rights than non-living corporations.
  • America is great when it is safe to drink the water and breath the air.
  • America is great when there are millions of family farms.
  • America is great when we build housing that is affordable to all income levels.
  • America is great when labor unions can battle corporations and win.
  • America is great when the infrastructure is a top priority.
  • America is great when it has a thriving middle class.
  • America is great when it puts the welfare of the middle class ahead of the tax cuts for the rich and corporations.
  • America is great when all people have equal rights and equal pay.
  • America is great when law-enforcement doesn't kill tax-payers.
  • America is great when it has a strong GI Bill and support for Veterans.
These are just off the top of my head. I'm sure that some people can think of more.
