The final “A” in MAGA (for Make America Great Again) may be an alienating thing for some people. Liberals, never-Trumpers and Democrats, might hate the last “A” because it strongly infers that Obama and his policy to “fundamentally transform America” existed because they believe America was never great and that he distorted and undermined the things that most Americans considered to be the greatness of America, a greatness that liberals will never admit ever existed.
Obama stated his policy of transforming America very succinctly and moved ahead with numerous policies and executive orders that were clearly contrary to the Constitution and established law. So it seems natural that the average person would assume that Obama meant that America was never great in the first place, or that his administration would end the greatness that conservatives assumed and celebrated, and go another direction with his radical left ideas. Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America” was shoved smack in the faces of all Americans as he swore to take America down and rip it apart to reach the radical ends that he and his mentors had always envisioned.
But perhaps, in order to assure national unity, the negative interpretation some Americans see in the final “A” of MAGA should be downplayed so as to minimize the hurt feelings of those who did not vote for Donald Trump.
Maybe Trump’s acronym should be just plain MAG, as in, simply, Make America Great, and perhaps this revision of Trump’s motto would allow Democrats to join President Trump’s promise to put America and its ideals of liberty, freedom, and prosperity back on a pedestal and get rid of the radical leftist notions of the government controlling the lives and futures of American citizens.
One hopes that all Americans will support the idea of Making America Great so our children and grandchildren can live in a free and wealthy nation. But, as one who lived and suffered through Barack Osama’s “fundamental transformation of America“ and recalls the prosperity, wealth and national unity that existed prior to the radical Democrat Obama destroying these things, I prefer the motto of Making American Great, Again, but I‘m willing to bend a little if it will bring more people onboard Trump‘s smooth-running train to a better tomorrow for all Americans.
Furthermore, considering Trump’s motto in a bit more depth, for conservatives to agree to drop the final “A” is confirmation that the Obama administration did actually end the former greatness of America and that we‘re now having to start all over, again, to recapture that greatness, so this omission should not be too painful.
