AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM

Post by Sean Meyer on Thu Sep 08, 2016 1:49 pm

American Exceptionalism is the idea that America is different from other countries because of our government, and that we should be viewed as such because we are different, and better, too

No, we arent.
Look at the third paragraph here:
