Marco Rubio: American Exceptionalism
I’ve written about virtue in this blog often enough to make some of my friends call me names… oh, there goes the wanna be philosopher that writes about “virtue… as though there are any virgins left in America over the age of eighteen.” Ok, it’s funny – a little, it stings – a little, but I don’t really think I’ll be stopping any time soon. You see, was a time I truly considered myself amoral. I believed that morality was pretty much a conventional thing and that each culture had its own unique brand. I’ve changed, but there is one thing I’ve never stopped believing – primarily because I’ve lived in so many different countries – and that thing I’ve continued to believe? Yup, right in the title, American Exceptionalism. NOT the kind that President Obama believes in – surely you remember when Obama said, “I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism, and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”
Nope. Not. No. Nyet. Non. Na. Nao… well, you get the idea. Marco Rubio’s video to cap off his campaign is simply awesome, we should all take it to heart and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!
