How did America become "great" in the first place? By doing the following:
- We stole this continent,
- We slaughtered its inhabitants,
- We strip mined its resources,
- We squandered the bounty which nature had provided,
- We bullied and/or invaded any country which got in our way,
- We left in our wake piles of bodies and mountains of waste which will poison this planet nearly forever, and
- We lied about what we were doing every step of the way.
Do we intend to do THAT again?
