You know what folks?..During Donald Trump's entire campaign I heard the words...MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!...MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!...etc. etc. etc.!...Ok!..That's all very well!..I think I can speak for both myself and the rest of my fellow countrymen and women that we want nothing more then to see our beloved country rise up to her former greatness and glory!.. However I have one reservation if I may folks?...
What does greatness mean exactly?..Is it not the level of excellence attained, achieved or reached by a society, which is in turn nothing more than an entailment or consequence and thus an incidental by-product of specific measures, steps and feats implemented, achieved?...Just as Liberty is an inevitable and therefore inherent entailment of uninfringed freedom!..So is greatness the inherent and natural consequence of implemented perfectious attributes and qualities within a society a society!...Many may present the argument that...Trump was making reference to reinstating our nation's economic prosperity and therefore greatness...
To these I say that economic prosperity like that of Liberty and greatness is also a natural and therefore inherent entailment or effectively it is an end and NOT! a means to an end!....Because, a truly prosperous, productive and free society..Is the natural and inevitable consequence of a free society governed by a free people!..Therefore!..If we truly wish to regain our nation's ( Greatness! ) then we must take a few steps back and ponder!..What was it which led to our countries greatness in the first place?...The answer is quite simple and evident if we only take care and look!..the answer lies within that single most pivotal moment in our nation's history..Our glorious 76 movement and uprising!..Why?..
Because..In order to understand the attributes which resulted in our nation's ascending to her height of glory and excellence, was rooted in the very attributes of the cause which that sacred movement represented and aimed to foster and achieve!..These were of course..Those values and principles which our forefathers aspired to and fought so vigorously and selflessly so to implement within the fabric and foundation of our society!..Freedom and freedoms entailment ( Liberty!) and justice!...That right!...I am speaking of ( social and political idealism ) NOT! ( Economical or commercial materialism! )...Now if we observe the measures implemented into our nation's one true document the Articles of Confederation and compare this with our nation's current standing document..What we will find to be very apparent and evident is this..
That the first ( The Articles ) was a purely idealistic document...Based almost entirely upon the concept of attaining, championing and upholding to a set of moral and ethical ( idealistic ) principles, values and convictions!...The second document however in contrast, our nation's current constitution..Is clearly a commercial or more poignantly a ( corporate ) charter, not of unalienable and inherent rights!..Aiming to achieve a society of spiritual, social and political excellence!..But rather instead a document aiming to establish a materialistically shallow and centralized society...Governed and directed not by idealism but rather by the pursuit of insatiable materialism!..This fact was nowhere more perfectly addressed then by Thomas Jefferson who stated the following to that effect:
Thomas Jefferson In the last year of his life, warned of a decadent younger generation of ambitious men who,
"having nothing in them of the feelings or principles of '76, now look to a single and splendid government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions, and monied incorporations under the guise and cloak of their favored branches of manufactures, commerce and navigation, riding and ruling over the plundered ploughman and beggared yeomanry."
So!, on that note I would like to conclude by saying this!...If we truly wish to regain our country's former greatness?..then we must concede that our position must NOT! be..LETS MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!..giving precedence and thus focusing upon that element which is the product or consequence of excellence!..But rather instead we must hold the position that...Lets make America, America again!..Meaning..To return her BACK! to the ideals, principles and values that which she had once been built upon, which in turn produced the greatest and most perfect and sublime nation in all history of man!.
John Sandoz Absolutely we need a revival in this country.Politically Trump has made very plainly his faith and the nation has responded to his platform.He bears the burden of keeping his word and for people like us to hold him to accountability.The nation bears the burden of turning back or to our savior and working for our friends and neighbors.
Darioush Radmanesh Amen Mr. Sandoz!
