What's the problem with American Exceptionalism? Does anyone object to the more accurate and more pro-American term "free-enterprise" being used instead of "capitalism" (coined by Karl Marx)? Would anyone like to voice concerns over a textbook for American children being "pro-American?" Does anyone want to object to promoting a "patriotic position" to school children? If these things are issues, why do children (most) recite the pledge of allegiance? I'm willing to listen and consider the reasoning behind such positions. I've been wrong before, perhaps I'm missing something. The floor is yours.
