    You have the right saying, "Make America great again" and the left want their country back. So I was just trying to clarify what America culture was/is, the criteria and why it's no longer great or what elements of it that has deviated for the left want it back?
    who is saying that?

    If you make it great again, what was it and where did it go?
    America has never lived up to its ideals, however we had them.

    We invested in science. We built, as a country, the infrastructure we still depend on today, but dont have the will, as a country, to maintain.

    Just a start.

    TL;DR- American culture is hamburgers
    Of course! The hamburger is the ultimate cultural achievement in food.

    Let's see ... no bacon or cheese for me (kosher issues) ... hate pickles ... tabasco is a crime against food ... bun is necessary to hold in the lettuce, tomato, onions and ketchup. (I added the ketchup.)

    for his time, that was probably true. I'm hoping we have gotten past the need for constant war. only time will tell - but there is hope.

    The culture that makes us great is that there is no culture. No one is forced to embrace any set of ethnic or religious values, to kiss anyone's ring or look or act a certain way to live here.
