I have grown weary of being told that America is falling apart. How can it be that we have reached such a low? We need to "Make America great again!" Someone just told me that they are voting for Donald Trump for President because "he is the only one who can get us out of this mess."
I am not inclined to debate the merits and timing of America's past greatness, nor do I intend to give a detailed accounting in support of or opposition to Obama's contribution to what either is or isn't American economic recovery post 2008. I will say that America currently faces challenges, as we always have. Period.
Full disclosure - I vote in every election available to me from local to Federal. I do not vote any party line. I voted for every Republican presidential candidate available to me until Obama's second term, when I voted for him.
