Issue 1 - Manufacture Products - Once people quit manufacturing things for themselves they become slaves to those who do the manufacture products
Read about the Eloy and the Moorlocks in Jules Verne the time machine. The Moorlocks live underground, run machinery, and feed the Eloy. The Moorlocks also eat the Eloy. Keep in mind that babies were sold for meat in England during the 1520's.
Issue 6: Give up on getting something for nothing and make something out of nothing - I have been straightening out bent and rusty nails since I was 6 years old. I have built a world with those nails. Need I say more?
Typically, the only time it's worth unbending a nail is if you're just a few nails short and can save an entire trip to the hardware store by unbending a few. Otherwise, most people's productive capacities are way more than it being worth one's time to unbend nails (unless it's just something you enjoy doing for the heck of it).
Issue 9: Take a discarded item, study it, and write down 10 things it can be re-purposed into so that it has another life
If one is extremely bored and has basically zero other income-producing opportunities, and gets a kick out of being creatively thrifty, great, more power to you and your hobby, but regressing to a scavenging way of life is not how the country is made great again.
Not trying to be mean, but something that could make America great again is if more people examine their own opinions and admit foolishness in some of the things they once thought clever.
