Memo to America: Our History Makes Us Exceptional

Scores of Americans have lost sight of why America is exceptional.

Let’s admit it: Scores of Americans have lost sight of why America is exceptional. Heck, there’s a whole tide of thought on the Left that loathes America and what it stands for. At the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) reminded everyone just why America is special. America’s exceptionalism isn’t rooted in the color of someone’s skin, economic status. Instead it’s rooted on how America was founded. “Our founding moment is truly extraordinary,” Sasse said. “Our Founders were making a claim about human dignity. Our Founders were saying that everybody, everywhere — not just those who have been blessed to be born in this place — but everybody, everywhere is ordained with natural rights. Everyone everywhere is created in the image of God with natural rights, and government is just our shared project to secure those rights.” This was just one point that Sasse made. Check out some of the highlights here.
