What We Believe, Part 7: American Exceptionalism
Bill Whittle in the last segment of the firewall series outlines his beliefs in American exceptionalism, that it was built into the country's beginnings by the founders with the way they structured our form of "limited" government, and gave each individual the personal freedom to fail or succeed according to talent or ability... an aristocracy of merit if you will. Do you agree with Whittle?
Personally, I would expect the leader of any country, state, city or corporation to believe that the entity they lead is exceptional and they are doing everything in their power to keep it exceptional. Any leader who doesn't feel this way should not remain in a leadership position.
