    In a way it does. Because there is no other nation that could do the same. Frankly we have been western europes protector for too long, we should leave those socialists to the Russians and see how they like them apples.

    The UK is clearly exceptional. In fact one reason given for the apparent discrepancy between England, Scotland, and Ireland is not so much that the Scots and Irish are inferior, but that the English historically have been the exception. There might be a point there.

    That said, the UK has been in decline for some time but in many measures is still exceptional. Perhaps the US isn't far behind.

    American exceptionalism? Okay, America is the first culture in history to become decadent without first being civilized. Does that work? If not, ask someone who lives in a tourist destination anywhere in the world how exceptional Americans are.

    Oh, no doubt. Americans are the sexiest people in the world and the US is the bestest place on earth. I sincerely hope that my karma allows my next incarnation to be born in Saginaw or Columbus or Boise or anywhere Alaska.
