Here is video of President Obama's Science Czar, John Holdren, rejecting the idea of "American Exceptionalism," and agreeing that U.S. Citizens would some day have to accept a lower standard of living through "a degree of redistribution."
Holdren made the comments in 2007 during a conference he was attending on the island of Bali, Indonesia.
This is the view that Obama and his entire cohort of radicals has of the United States. They believe there is nothing "exceptional" about America, and therefore why should Americans be able to be more prosperous than anyone else in the world.
America is exceptional because of the freedoms we have to decide for ourselves, and to strive to become anything and everything we desire. That's not a knock on, or a put down to the rest of the world. In fact, America wants everyone to have the same freedoms we have, and our nation has gone to great lengths to make that possible.
Holdren, Obama and all those like them will seek to take that away from Americans - that sense of pride and confidence in the exceptional history of our nation. But it still lives in the hearts of millions, and Americans are waking up to the fact that the "Change" Obama is seeking to bring is to turn an "exceptional" nation and quality of life into a European-style socialist state.
