Jim Turpin on The Myth of American Exceptionalism

On July 13, 2012 Jim Turpin spoke on KOOP's Rag Radio. In his Rag Blog article on "American Exceptionalism," Turpin points out that the United States is number one in the world in military spending with troop presence in over 150 countries; has record levels of hunger, poverty and unemployment; has seen the rise of an Orwellian national security state; and has experienced "obscene accumulation of wealth by a corporate plutocracy" -- with record corporate profits while middle-class American families have "lost a staggering 39% of their net worth."
