    We are all just people, that's just fact. We as Americans have slowly destroyed what was given to us, Dems and Reps alike. It is natural to shift towards welfare until it all falls apart. It's a cycle.

    The Grand Canyon IS truly exceptional, but what did Americans do to create it?

    The Boy Scouts are exceptional also, but that organization was founded in Britain.

    This more like "76 things I like", than proof of American exceptionalism.

    Didn't read it.. Was the Native American genocide and slavery on your list? Probably too small to mention compared with all our "accomplishments"...

    Had we not had those accomplishments, we could not possibly have built a great nation. So, they should have been on the list.

    We the People, when living up to the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution, both of which comport our cultural and social compact, we are exceptional. When we abandon those principles, we are no different than any other peoples in history.

    God can raise up stones to become Americans, if He so wished.
