The American culture is an important piece that makes up our country. The values and beliefs we all have are different and bringing in own opinion makes it great. In culture this we have the option to think, say, and believe what we want. The Declaration of Independence sets a big tone on how all men are created equal (Jefferson). No matter how the man looks, everything is supposed to be equal. Another value is how diverse our culture is compared to any other in the world, it’s very unique. This is what we stand for.
Americans truly believe our society is the freest and the best in the world. In the U.S. people really believe in freedom and that all people are equal, at least they should be. Being able speak what you want and freedom of religion is big because people have so many different beliefs and values in their own lives.
American values are important because of things like jobs. When we have jobs that allows the people to make money and the higher you are in your job the more power and money you can get which makes people want that spot and creates competition which keeps the society running and people wanting jobs. To keep things running their has to be efficiency coming from the people and they have to believe the government is gonna protect them and make sure they get their money because if they’re not why would they want to keep working? We want freedom and equality for ourselves, but also for the generations coming up under us (Preamble) . We do not want our future kids to have to be afraid of their future. They want to be able to live right and freely. “For the Child of Immigrants, the American Dream Can Be a Nightmare” (Karla). Keeping everything bright is good for both us and our next to come generation.
