Taxes rates of %90 on the ultra wealthy, the fairness doctrine, union membership promoted in all industries, a single worker could earn enough to care for his family affordable education and healthcare.
Bring all that back first, then we can talk about the imagined past that you want

Do you really want to know what I want? Do you really want to know the truth? I want my people to reclaim their rightful place in the galaxy. I want to see the Centauri stretch forth their hand again and command the stars. I want a rebirth of glory, a renaissance of power! I want to stop running through my life like a man late for an appointment, afraid to look back or look forward. I want us to be what we used to be! I want... I want it all back the way it was. Does that answer your question?

No, you want to roll things back to the 50s.  The 1850s.

The way it was? Back before...what exactly? Before we had to worry about a foreign crown apparently.

If he means june 2015, I'm with it.

It was when gay marriage became legal in the USA. It was the last time the country seemed firmly on the right track.

The Lt Gov of Ohio (I think?) tried to hawk MAGA masks from the stage and got booed. They are really committed to this dying-wheezing-and-alone thing.

I've had that image since March 2017.  It turned out more true that we ever thought possible.

I think we need to break 2020 down into sections, but I'm not sure what goes between Year of Hell Janeway and Borg Universe Riker.

Maybe the Shenzhou after its shiat gets wrecked at the start of Discovery?

If it's anything like the Henderson rally, it's just for the crowd behind him, and only while the cameras are on.

Night Train to Wakanda: OdradekRex: So do we all. Pre-Trump.

We know. That's why being force fed Biden is part of the problem.


Oh noes I guess we all should sit this one out in protest because we didn't immediately get exactly what we wanted

This is such bullshiat that I can't believe anyone falls for it. He's the one man wrecking crew trying to destroy our entire way of life, by dismantling the liberal Western order. And he's simultaneously trying to claim he's for the status quo? As a liberal, I support the status quo more than he does. I think there are certainly issues our society needs major improvement on, but I don't think we should just trash 200 years of progress in favor of fascism and theocracy. Trump has blasted past conservativism, through regressivism, and into full blown fascist authoritarianism. He's about to install some religious whack job to a lifetime position on the SCOTUS. How is that wanting things to stay the same?

It seems his reading of "the same" is very selective. I guess he means "minorities knowing their place" and "rich white dudes running everything"?

As soon as World War 2, the UK shiatcanned Churchill for someone they REALLY wanted to rule the country;

Sometimes, there are more pressing matters than getting the perfect man for the job. Not having your country become a dictatorship is one such matter.

Lots of American history is about communities which operated under highly puritan, illiberal, essentially facist conditions. From actual witch hunts to slavery, there's a lot of it going on. US history is undoubtedly about rich white dudes running a lot. He's about bringing that back. Your history (while undisputable) does not match the history Trump voters remember learning.

The crowds at these things, including the people behind him, are nowhere close enough to breathe on him.  He takes extraordinary precautions to make sure nobody comes within15-20 feet of him at these things.  If you see a shot from the side, you can see the distance.

And if you look at pics of the crowd in front of him, there's hardly a mask in sight

The masks behind him are all for show

Y'all just can't accept me telling y'all that electing Biden won't do anything more than delay America's descent into fascism, at best.
