In my lifetime, I have seen America as a great, prosperous and mighty nation.
America was still considered to be a Christian nation with many laws based upon biblical principles.
Marriage was one man with one woman and I recall that in many areas, sodomy was a crime.
The Constitution was valued, honored and protected.

We were allowed to have guns in our vehicles at public schools and most boys carried a pocketknife.
America also had the mightiest military in history.
However, according to Pete Buttigieg, the gay candidate who wrongly blames God for making him gay, just told an audience that America was never as great as advertised.
Breitbart – Pete Buttigieg in South Carolina: America ‘Was Never as Great as Advertised’ – Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg took a jab at President Trump on Monday while delivering a speech in South Carolina, saying America’s past “was never as great as advertised.”
“So many of the solutions, I believe, are gonna come from our communities. Communities like the one where I grew up, which is an industrial mid-western city,” the former South Bend, Indiana mayor stated. “That is exactly the kind of place that our current president targeted with a message saying that we could find greatness by just stopping the clock and turning it back.”
“That past that he is promising to return us to was never as great as advertised, especially for marginalized Americans… and there’s no going back anyway.” …
Back when America was great, it was safe for us kids to play outside, walk to school, walk to the corner store and to each other’s house.
America had the strongest economy in the world.
Communists and socialist were considered to pariahs and shunned by much of society.
Capitalism and free enterprise ruled and was responsible for the economy, jobs and prosperity of the nation.
Therefore, I hate to think what kind of greatness Buttigieg has in mind for our nation!
