Steve Sailer asks which slogan is better, “America First” or “Americans First”?
The downside of a contrarian sensibility is that I’m a poor marketer, so don’t look to me for slogans that sell.
Still, to me, “Americans First” sounds better on several dimensions than “America First.”
What do you think?
I think it’s perfect.
The obvious rejoinder is to quibble about the definition of “American”, and according to Scott Adams’ persuasion stack arguing about definitions is capitulation. It sets up the opposition for immediate failure.
Analogy (okay, not great)
You’ll see a lot of debate on whether Trump is a true conservative or not. That is argument by definition. It is the linguistic equivalent of throwing your gun at a monster because the magazine* is empty.
