    Make America Great Again...its an enchanting sentiment, but what does it mean to be 'great'.

    Hillary has stated..."we are great because we are 'good'. Or, you could use the word 'virtue'.

    Donald has at least implied that to be great means to be RICH and POWERFUL.
    By powerful, I assume he's talking about military might.

    Even Warren Buffet chimed in on this question to affirm that greatness is defined by the median standard of living. He explained that America has never been greater in many aspects of medical technology, housing, transportation and entertainment.

    I agree with ALL of these facets.

    To be a virtuous nation is ineffectual without wealth and military power.
    To be wealthy and powerful without ethical integrity is a path that leads to war and chaos.

    And war is the ultimate sin...because it opens the door and gives license to every other sin.
    What happened to the incidence of rape and theft during WWII...it skyrocketed of course.

    Now here's the subject for this thread. How do differing age and gender groups define the word GREAT...on a national status?

    Do the majority of women see it differently than men?
    Do millennials see it differently than retired people?

    Your thoughts???

    Some one posted this video on another thread and I think it provides ample evidence that Warren Buffet's approach to this question is WRONG!
