What is American exceptionalism?

Is it having the biggest and baddest military on earth? Is it our form of government? Can only the things that make us proud be exceptional?

Our national debt seems pretty exceptional. Should be be proud of that?

What makes us exceptional compared to other countries?

The same thing as German exceptionalism, Swiss exceptionalism, British exceptionalism, etc. etc

I think Obama said something in that matter before

Agree. The term is mostly repeated on the right. It really means nothing. Kind of like "balanced approach" and "fair share" on the left.

LINK The INDISPENSIBLE Nation.

Due to our Ideological Commitment and Revolutionary Zeal, we have changed this to American Acceptionalism- via State Dictate. This new philosophy holds that we will accept virtually anything the State wants to impose upon us, if it benefits The People, and strengthens The State.
