Note: Josef Stalin (FDR’s pal) first coined the tern American exceptionalism.
Juliana Geran Pilon’s claim that “Our Constitution is the Longest-lasting in the world today…” has not been true in my lifetime. A literal reading would reveal almost every bit of federal spending as unconstitutional. Congress’s whims replaced The Constitution as the law of the land with such examples as Social Security or fuel mileage standards without so much as a whimper.
The American exceptionalism she is writing about would more likely mean constitutional restraints “except” for all these programs that are destroying the founders’ vision for a government that simply enables private property as a path to prosperity.
