American society has many deep-rooted characteristics that consist of attitudes,
values, and beliefs. Political culture improves communication throughout communities
and people share a knowledge of political events that affect our country of how and
why they happened. Political culture is essentially a country’s political personality
and sets boundaries of behavior that is considered acceptable in society. Events such
as the attacks of 9/11, the Vietnam war, the civil war, WWI, WWII, and the Great
Depression has influenced Americans views of the world. Values represent a country’s
beliefs about what is fair and good. The American creed is believed to be “by the
people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the
governed.” as said by Abraham Lincoln.
