The US was founded by people leaving England and Europe to get away from restrictive laws, customs, and poverty, and searching for opportunity. So were most of the other countries in North and South America, if you disregard the civilizations and people that were already here when the immigrants arrived.

I don't see how this makes the US exceptional at all. It's the history common to two entire continents.

I don't mean to sneer here, I just don't get the logic of skipping over all the other countries including ones of significant size like Canada, Mexico, or Brazil.

(edit: not to mention Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa)

What jonny said - absolutely what jonny said.

But no doubt the fact that neocons confirm this stuff on an almost hourly basis is still a distortion by the left rather than denial by the right :roll:
