    I ve heard this a lot in election speeches, but one thing about the arrongance behind this idea is that it doesn't meet the reality.

    Let s start:

    The symbol of America: The man who built the statue of Liberty was a Frenchman (the same man who build the eiffel tower)

    Another symbol of America: the American National Anthem is a story about Fort McHenry and Americans in there surviving a huge naval bombardment that would ve annahilated them with the big US Flag if it wasn't for the French Engineering that had been used to build it.

    The first American on the moon: One of the biggest triumphs of US history is the one of the Nation that put the first man on the moon. The fact of the matter is that it was German technology that made it work and Nazi-German scientists that were key to making it work: the truth is that German efficiency got American astronauts on the moon.

    The idea that Americans have nothing to learn from others because Americans are the best in everything is just idiotically stupid, as some of the Biggest American Accomplishments where enabled by non-Americans (including the US independence that was enabled by the French Fleet helping the Americans during the war of independence)

    YOU f..king IDiOT!!!
    YOU and other pompous cliched idiots seem to think that when logical people speak of "American Exceptionalism"
    it is bad! It is terrible! It is ARROGANT!

    Well I don't!
    I think of the MILLIONS of "EXCEPTIONAL" People that come to America BECAUSE they can BE exceptional!
    Idiots LIKE you want to constrain that individuality! You ridicule those people that want to better themselves BY coming to America!
    And THEN you have the f...ing idiocy to criticize America for coming to the aid of countries that SENT those exceptional people and whose relatives are being slaughtered i.e. German Jews, Asians Vietnam, Iraqis middle east!
    YOU ridicule America's aiding these countries that are homelands to now Americans!
    Americans who come legally, get their citizenship and work at the exceptional characteristics that America allows
    the freedom to blossom!
    And you have the idiocy to criticize American exceptionalism!
    NO other country has had as MANY people immigrate to and NO other country has come to the AID of countries as America has!
    Get that stupid OLD fashioned liberal education meme out of your head!
    America is EXCEPTIONAL because exceptional people come from countries that don't offer the same freedoms and opportunities to exploit the EXCEPTIONAL people!

    Do you understand??? It is not a jingoistic statement to be proud and humble that America is so blessed with many natural resources AND foresight to allow such exceptionalism to bloom!!!

    hey idiot Munin....
    It is "built" not "build" the Statue of Liberty!

    IT IS Eiffel Tower! not "eifel tower"!
    It is "ANTHEM" not "Anthom"!!
    It is idiotically not "idioticly"

    I am sorry for being so hard on you if English is your second language.. if not you should be ashamed to call yourself "educated"!

    You know it is very simple to know if you've misspelled a word didn't you?
    When you type and you see a red dotted line ............ under a word it is misspelled!

    This country isnt about exceptionalism and if you believe it your education failed you. Anyone with any experience in the work world here is its man vs man do whatever you need to do to get ahead of everyone else. That is today's america. If you find that exceptional well so be it.

    Yes, it is my 3rd language (I m from Europe). I try to improve it, ty for correcting it (I will fix it immediatly :p )
    It does undermine the point I try to make, so if this was my first language this would be embarrassing and I think it is now too :p . I don't get the red lines as you get them, currently all my words are underlined (I think the spelling correction works on another language atm, I might see if I can set it on English spelling correction)
