Letter from Jim DeMint to President Vladimir Putin on American Exceptionalism:
DeMint's tone is in response to Putin's masterful mockery of Obama in the NYT.
But his big point is in fact our big problem. The "creedal nation" unanchored in any particular people turns into the "ideological nation" Liberals have been constructing. And it requires that the actual founding people, their culture, values, institutions, religion, status and power be brought down to make way for the multicultural paradise of social justice that DeMint thinks is America's founding idea. "Equality" has metasticized into a devouring sickness that makes "freedom" less and less real. There can be no "we" that is not constructed by the State.
Not a one of the Founding Fathers would agree.
DeMint is president of perhaps the premier conservative think tank in the country and is an example of why conservatism is no longer enough.
