Im curious what you percieve American values to be.
Screw them, before they screw you.
Traditional 18th Century Western values. Personal Responsibility. Gender Roles. Patriarchal Society.
Values huh? What they are or what they should be?
What American values are now:
Get as much as you can for free.
Spend as much money that you can.
Spend as much of other peoples money you can.
Instant gratification is not FAST enough.
Don't worry, the government will take care of you.
Work the very least you can get away with.
me me me, want want want, now now now.
What they should be: (imo)
Working hard and being able to enjoy the fruits of your own labor.
Take care of yourself, work hard, the government is not your mother and does not owe you a lifestyle.
Live within your means.
Help others as much as you can.
There is no such things as 'American values'. There are only the values held by the American people at any given time.
Rightist reactionaryism, how quaint.
Not a value, more of a tenet, would be the understanding and acknowledgment of the rule of law.
Bingo...see above. That is the prevailing American value.
So you oppose capitalism and the collection of rent?
So you oppose veterans' benefits?
Before women could vote? When the south had slaves?
When veterans were called to protect this country, they risked their lives to do so.
