Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

So sad to hear conservatives spouting the American Exceptionalism line, confusing nationalism with patriotism. They're being played by the most successful communists in history.

Oh, and by the way, the Pledge of Allegence was written by a socialist:
