In the world of today the traditional values of our nation are under attack, from within, to the point of destroying everything the founding of this country and its rise to greatness stood for.
It is important to reflect back on these values and begin the push to restore them.
Traditional American values are the fundamental beliefs and principles that have shaped the United States as a nation since its founding. These values include individual freedom, self government, and equality, as well as a strong work ethic, self-reliance, and a deep respect for the rule of law.
One of the most important traditional American values is individual freedom. This value is embodied in the Constitution, which guarantees citizens the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This means that every individual has the right to make their own choices, express themselves freely, and pursue their own goals without interference from the government or other individuals. This means the government, as well as any other entity, has no business injecting themselves into a person's freedom to speak and express their opinions. This also means there can be no government interference in any choice of an individual in their lives, such as medical decisions, financial pursuits, or lawful activities they wish to pursue.
Another crucial traditional American value is self government. The United States is a representative republic based on the principles of democracy, which means that citizens have the right to vote for their leaders and hold them accountable for their actions. This value is reflected in the Constitution, which establishes a system of checks and balances to ensure that no one branch of government becomes too powerful. Additionally, the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution, further protects the rights of citizens, such as freedom of speech, religion, and the press. Our government has forgotten that they work FOR the people, and need to be reminded of this in an effective and definate manner immediately.
Equality, not equity, is also a core traditional American value. This value is reflected in the Declaration of Independence, which states that "all men are created equal" and that they are entitled to "certain unalienable rights." This means that every individual, regardless of their race, gender, religion, or background, has the same rights and opportunities under the law. This doesn't mean all are entitled to the same outcome, but the same opportunity to better ones self. This doesn't mean that there is a right FROM religion, but a right TO religion.
Work ethic, self-reliance, and a respect for the rule of law are also traditional American values. Americans were known for their strong work ethic and their belief that hard work and determination lead to success. This value is reflected in the nation's history, where immigrants came to the United States seeking a better life and worked hard to build a future for themselves and their families. Additionally, Americans place a strong emphasis on self-reliance, meaning individuals are responsible for their own lives and success. Today, this value is further and further away with the younger generations feeling entitled and 'owed' something. This is a value that needs to be restored and engraved in our future generations if we are ever to become the great nation we once were.
Respect for the rule of law is also a fundamental American value, as it ensures that everyone is held accountable for their actions and that justice is served. In today's woke culture criminals are painted as victims, police as criminals, and laws as repressive rather than to sustain a thriving society. This has led to our nation degrading into a third world culture of lawlessness and mayhem.
Traditional American values are the foundation of the United States as a nation. These values, including individual freedom, self government, equality, a strong work ethic, self-reliance, and a respect for the rule of law, shaped the country and should continue to guide it today. As Americans, it is important that we restore and uphold these values and pass them on to future generations to ensure that the United States once again is the beacon of freedom, democracy, and opportunity for all.
