10 Values We Can Agree on for America

We often allow our opposition to define us. This is not healthy for us or for them, as it tends to relegate our conversation to an “us and them” status. On this week’s podcast, I begin a multi-podcast look at some Values I think we should agree on so that we might maintain our republic. Let me know what you think as well.

Here are the 10 Things:

  • We are a sovereign nation
  • We are a nation of laws, not men
  • Our rights are protected by, but not granted by the government
  • Citizens are the supreme inhabitants of this nation
  • Our government should operate within its means
  • All people are created equal
  • The Constitution of the United States is to be followed by and protected by our elected officials
  • All government workers serve the people
  • Wealth belongs to those who generate it
  • We are a representative republic
