FYI (for those who maybe interested, for whatever reason?) lol .D
Headline edited from "Daniel McAdams, Exec. Director of Ron Paul Inst., on American Exceptionalism: Putin, The Neocons, and Ron Paul - Sept. 13, 2013" to the current one: "Ron Paul on "American Exceptionalism" & Daniel McAdams, Director of RPI, on Am.Ex, Putin, Neocons, and Ron Paul - Sept. 13, 2013"
not to step into intra-familial Thanksgiving dinner topic, but while I 'get' Rand's recent rebuttal to Putin on "American Exceptionalism" is basically saying the same thing, ie. one is not automatically exceptional by virtue of one's uncontrollable place of birth, but what one DOES that matter, Rand's saying that BECAUSE we have had a historically factual heritage of living by such Constitutional principles (at least the few that have, throughout the yrs, post-Founders' days) is the reason WHY we were 'exceptional.'
Ron's saying, simply: NO ONE is "exceptional" by virtue of birth, PERIOD. It's what you do that ONLY matters.
Ron's is a no-BS, blunt, genteel moral equivalent of...well, okay, so he'd NEVER put it this way, but if I had my druthers, I would say:
"Biitch, you ain't special, just because you delusionally keep telling yourself you are! DO something exceptional, THEN, you MAYBE considered "exceptional." But regardless, talk about an arrogant, childish, narcissistic, neurotic way of looking at yourself! Friggin' spoiled Boomer Brat!"
Rand's rebuttal on Putin's criticism, has a better rhetoric that appeals to a broader spectrum of political stripes, including the sheeple drones; he enlightens, without 'insulting' their petty, self-absorbed insecure egos.
Oh well, same thing, different rhetoric.
But for me, personally? Ron. It's ALWAYS gonna be Ron.D
Regardless, I'd sooooooooo pay to hear him say, "Biitch, you ain't special!" LOL. Sure, not likely to happen, ever. But, what the heck, eh?
Wonder if he ever uses expletives, when IF he gets mad... silly irrelevant trivia, but regardless, was always curious about that...
Predictions in due Time...
