The old days weren't all bad

A Facebook friend posted something why you shouldn't vote for Donald Trump.
He thinks Trump is racist, sexist, hateful and ignorant.
And if you support Trump, you are those things too.
Not persuaded.
His vision of Trump's world?
By supporting Trump do you think things will go back to the way they were? Back when gay people had to hide in fear, back when people of any other color than white had to worry about getting lynched, back when it was okay to openly hate? Do you think empowered women will suddenly quit their jobs and go back to the kitchen ? Because electing Trump won't make any of that come true. We're past that as a nation, or at least I thought we were.
Is that what Trump wants?
There were good things in the past.
Some of those have faded away now, not due to the advances this guy likes.
Trump and his supporters remember the good things of the past.
They want those things for our future.
Don't Trump's opponents think the past had good things?
Or understand what his supporters want?
