The Secret To Amereican Excetionalism
I’m an American. I still believe in American exceptionalism, but perhaps now more than ever, I have come to understand that exceptionalism is not a result of merit … but grace. I came to that conclusion after honestly asking myself: Are we smarter than the Romans, who built a republic thousands of years ahead of us; more brilliant than the Germans, from whom we developed our rocket and space technology; better than the Brits, who were one of the largest empires ever built, or more tenacious than the Russians, who stopped the Germans in WW II? I doubt it.
So, what made America exceptional? Certainly, at the time of the revolution it was not our military or financial prowess. Exceptionalism did not rest in the hands of the Continental Congress, who were as feckless as any deliberative body ever assembled. The case could be made that Washington was exceptional, yet he lost battle after battle, almost to the point of mutiny among his men and top generals.
What, then, was that spark that set this nation apart from all others on earth? Sure, we have an abundance of natural resources: land, warm water ports, and so much more; still, I believe, to accurately define exceptionalism, one must look to the words of the Declaration of independence.

The Coming Crash
By: Dr. Jeffrey “Jake” Baker Wednesday November 10, 2010If you want to view America in 2012, simply look across Europe where unions are growing, spending has been unrestrained and irresponsible, and people see government – not the private sector – as their salvation. Unrest, even militancy, is growing at an alarming rate, as violence spreads even to once safe, quiet neighborhoods. Both Spain and Greece are | Read More »
