American exceptionalism and the GOP – You can’t get there from here

by Ben Hoffman

Conservative policies have resulted in our country’s enormous debt and the near total collapse of our economy. Americans still do great things. We’re still king of innovation. But our country as a whole has lost its way. Money is the only thing that matters to too many people.

We have the military industrial complex keeping us in a perpetual state of war. We have the medical industrial complex driving up the costs of health care and keeping quality down. And there’s the education cartel bilking billions out of our school system rather than improving education.

American exceptionalism means a government working for the people — not just for corporate interests.
