AMERICA FIRST: A BIPARTISAN APPROACH

U.S. ROOM GERMANY

 

"While I take inspiration from the past, like most Americans, I live for the future"

-RONALD REAGAN-

     Some people would argue that the term AMERICA FIRST has an evil connotation.  Of course, you can choose the easy way now and repeat what you may have read, or heard from others, namely that the term is evil and therefore, the current policies must be evil too. The truth is that the term AMERICA FIRST was used several times in the nation's history, and it was used by both parties. Therefore, to say in general that AMERICA FIRST is evil without doing any research on your own says  a lot about your provision of information. A fact is, for instance, that the term was used two times to protect America from entering into World War. The term had evil references too but another fact is that today's meaning of AMERICA FIRST follows no past definition but stands for other aspects as one can read from official sources made available to the public. This site would like to invite you to learn more about the meaning of the two words "AMERICA" and "FIRST".

"I believe in the American Dream. My business experience shows me that it works, and I want to do everything possible to see that regular Americans can enjoy the same opportunity for success and security that I have had. That means the American Dream unencumbered by bureaucratic ineptitude, government regulation, confiscatory tax policies, racism, discrimination against women, or discrimination against people based on sexual orientation. We must all have equal access to the American Dream.

It's a dream we deserve and a dream worth fighting for"

Trump. Donald. The America We Deserve. Los Angeles: Renaissance Books, 2000. pp36.

The term "AMERICA FIRST" was first used by 28th President Woodrow Wilson during his presidential campaign in 1916. Among other aspects, Wilson's America First vision included:

 

Neutrality in the eastern hemisphere

Military clout

Exemplary function for other nations

Nationalism

Woodrow Wilson coined the term AMERICA FIRST. Both parties used it during their presidential campaign.


An increasing destabilizing Europe concerned many Americans. After experiencing World War 1, most Americans wanted to stay out of any new European conflict. Thus, an America First Committee was established. On its peak, the Committee had more than 800.000 members, among them Gerald Ford and Charles Lindbergh.


The America First Party was established. Their agenda puts America and every citizen first. They argue for a strong military, able to protect the nation. Furthermore, English should be set up as an official language.


"Its time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget,  that whether we are black, brown or white, we all bleed the same

red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms,  and we all salute the same great American flag."

-DONALD J. TRUMP [45]-

 

The current version of AMERICA FIRST can be seen as a morally superior answer in times of industrial espionage, patent infringements, delinquency (fair share of military spending), terrorism, human trafficking, politicians whose goal is it to be in the making of a career instead of serving their nation, tyranny, and whitewashing of complex problems. It is a new definition without any references to former usages. It simply means that the interests of AMERICA are put FIRST in difficult times like these as stated above. This common-sense approach protects the United States and sets the standards for an acrimonious competition among nations. Moreover, it seeks to strengthen ties with valued American allies. You may have come across the term "American Destiny". The term means that AMERICA FIRST requires trust and faith sometimes. These two words can be established if you know the core values of America and what the nation stands for.
