another favorite student mispellering

"American Exceptionalism" - a term meaning, as far as I understand it, the idea that America is exceptional, that we believe we stand outside history as a unique occurrence sprung from the inglorious past, a new land set aside from the futures chosen by those like the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah. A term used to describe our belief that we are, as the Beacon on the Hill, a country founded under a mandate given by God unto His People to establish the Promised Land, to follow the strict Christian covenant, specifically the laws and values of His Kingdom, in order to retain the sanction given unto the promised loyal and filial people to uphold His Vision. And as such, we are to hold ourselves above outside wicked influence and international un-exceptionalism.

Student Version = "American Expectionalism" - fill in the blank.
