"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Our national vision has shrunken, along with the stature of our leaders.

In fact, we no longer have either.

We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH

American exceptionalism is so misunderstood. I have a personal example that helps me understand. I am not particularly gifted intellectually. I'm an average person in that respect. But, I always believed I was better, something mom instilled in me. I always did well in school, not because it was a gift, but I just believed that I was bright, and wouldn't accept not doing well.

That is how American exceptionalism works. If you believe that you are better, you won't accept not being better.

We now accept that we are not only not exceptional, but we are a problem for the world.
NASA virtually shut down. Detroit a modern city ruins.
It makes me want to cry.

(Had to edit. Omitted a word that changed the meaning. See, NOT particularly gifted! )

I think it's more basic.

You tell an American something can't be done and they'll look at you, slightly puzzled and slightly distressed, and say "Why not?"

Never change. Please.

Too late.
