What Made America Great?
“Make America Great Again” is the battle cry and slogan by Donald Trump. He often talks about making America great again. I’m sure that millions of Americans want this and I’m sure that no matter what country you are from you’d like to have your country great, too. Back in the 1830s a Frenchman by the name of Alexis de Toqueville wanted to find this out, so he made a study of it.
Alexis de Toqueville wanted to know what made America great so he travelled to America and visited many towns in many states and look at the laws and society in the country. As a result of his extensive travel he wrote a book called “Democracy in America,” and put it in two volumes. These two book are available free to download here.
Not only did Toqueville looked at America as it was then but also how it was in the 1600 and 1700s when it was still a colony of Great Britain. Yes, America was great way back then, too.
If Americans is serious about being great again, we have to look back at our roots; if Donald Trump is serious about making America great again, he should read this book (maybe he already has). Now, it’s time to put what was learned into action! Will he? Time will tell.
Donald Trump, being a successful businessman, knows that success leaves clues. And if you want to be successful you should follow those who are. Well, the same thing can be said about countries, too. Find out what those “clues” are by reading “Democracy in America.”
