Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was recently on ABC News in an interview with George Stephanopoulos. During the conversation, Bachmann said that a number of the Founding Fathers opposed slavery and worked to end it, but Stephanopoulos challenged her, “Now, with respect Congresswoman, that’s just not true.” But it is true. (Several good articles have been written about Stephanopoulos’ exchange with Bachmann – www.nationalreview.comand spectator.org)
Unfortunately, because of today’s practice of Deconstructionism – that is, pointing out every possible negative in American history and then making the exception appear to be the rule – most Americans can now recite more of what’s wrong with America than what’s right. They can identify every wart that has ever appeared on the face of America over the past four centuries but not identify what has made America the envy of every people in the world – the envy of every people, that is, except Americans.
