Republicans this election cycle have the difficult task of trying to convince the American voting public that they would be a better choice than a Democrat. After all, it is President Obama that has led the nation out of one of the worst economic recessions since the Great Depression, and the numbers simply don’t lie, jobs are up, unemployment is down, and more people than ever have access to health care. So, when Republican candidates want to appeal to their voting base that somehow all of these facts are bad, they have resorted to lies and propaganda politicking.
One of the worst spreading the lie that the country is down in the dumps, even though all evidence points to the contrary, is Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. He’s been touting his ridiculous slogan “Make America Great Again” since he began. However, America already is great, so it leaves one to wonder what exactly he wants to bring our nation back to. The failed fiscal policies under Republican leadership? Pre-Civil Rights discrimination? Keeping women out of the workforce? Who knows, really.
