8. Make America Great Again - going back to the 50's.

When wages were high and unemployment was low and the country was booming.

And abortion was illegal and women died.
And Jim Crow was the law.
And young women who got pregnant 'out of wedlock' simply disappeared for a while.
And homosexuality was illegal.
And when AIDS showed up we did nothing because it was 'that gay disease'.
And women didn't work in 'men's jobs'.
And spousal rape was an oxymoron.
And lynchings were not uncommon in the South.

And America was a Christian nation.
