American exeopticnalism? I am ttaolly disgusted with our government in Washington on all levels. and I believe most citizens agree. Our country has become so divided along political lines that I honestly don't see a way to put humpty dumpty together again. We are now in a very vunerable position on the world stage, not just economically but we are exposing ourselves on all levels. All of our problems didn't happen overnight, but rather have been festering for years and like a cancer we are now in terminal stage. It saddens me, as I am sure it does all Americans to see what was once a great country, a shinning example to the world of what democracy can be. We are no longer that country, we are no longer a democracy, but rather a place where special interests of a few control the people as a whole.
