40. We are free to disagree

though I suspect Wintrop is screaming from the grave... THAT IS NOT WHAT I MEANT with that City on the Hill speech! DAMN IT!

As is right now looking at both older research and newer research... as well as primary sources... ah the first compact of Virginia is a pain... not more than oh the Letters of Cortez to the King... that ancient (insert language here) is enough to give you head aches.

Hey at least I don't have to decipher it (do a little old fashioned paleography) At least my mind is just rebelling at the "misspellings."

Oh and I forgot, American Exceptionalism is part of what you are talking about... and it is part of the American Creed, the civics lesson one. I suspect that as the Empire falls about us, this exceptionalism and Manifest Destiny will fall by the wayside, as we join the rest of the world in being well.. part of the world.
