6. "American exceptionalism" was a myth

Well, it has taken a long tome for many people to realize that "American exceptionalism" is nothing more than propaganda, a make-the-people-feel-good-and-look-the other-way scam.

How many times I have cringed listening to idiots claim "America is the best country in the World". The first thing is that "America" is "South America", "Central America" and "North America", but then again I also cringe when said correctly "United States of America is the greatest country in the World". When you are fed crap like that on a daily basis you end up believing it, and then dismissing all the problems, thus looking the other way.

Like the saying goes, "to fix a problem you must first recognize there is a problem"...we are getting somewhere now.
