Now that the losing side in the upcoming US Presidential election has all but officially placed its faith in the old Reagan era catch-cry rebadged by Donald Trump – “Make America Great Again”, the other side of the spinning coin has also all but officially (though I think Bernie may still have something to say about that), with the true ‘militant complacency’ of modern liberals, opted for the ‘more of the same’ approach opposing catch-cry of Hillary (It’s My Turn) Clinton – “America never stopped being great”. A sentiment of blind logic echoed by the current incumbent of the chair they are both vying for – “America’s pretty darn great right now”.
How can they all be so wrong? And Why? Or are they trying to pull the wool over your eyes?
This guardian article has a lot to offer in analysis of the situation: Why must the Trump alternative be self-satisfied, complacent Democrats? – “Convinced that the country’s ongoing demographic shifts will bring victory for years to come, the party establishment acts like its candidates need do nothing differently”.
