America was built by hard working people of the United States which made this one of the greatest Nation in the world. And now the United States has fallen to the point where we depend on other countries for oil. We have sent American jobs out of the Country that Americans need to live and provide for there family. We have let our military go to Afghanistan and Iraq to fight for what happen on 911 which happen to take so many Americans lives. Our troops should have come home along time ago, no questons asked. People are so mad with the two party system and you can't count on the Tea Party because they are nothing more than a bunch of Republicans trying to pull the wool over  the American people's eyes. America needs to stand up and stop all this false hope and work to make this Country great again. If you agree, join my group, as I will work to make this the greatest country in the world again.

I sure would like to see a majority of American Citizens vote on what Our Values are. I wonder what would be in the top ten? Until that time comes, I will agree with you Mark B. Graham. Let me try to identify the values that you have highlighted above:

"America was built by hard working people of the United States which made this one of the greatest Nation in the world."

This would be the "Work Ethic" on a collective/national scale. The Value of Hard Work to make America More and Better. The application BY Individuals, from all walks of Life, of their skills, abilities and personal energy to contribute to The "General Welfare" of Their Nation. I hate to admit it, but even the "exploiters", as the self serving element of American Leadership, contributed to this Social Evolutionary Process. Much Goodness came, despite the evil involved. The "Greatness" that was built had and has, its price. We should maintain what Good We have wrought and build upon it. Even toward a Better Direction than before. The Work yielding higher returns and dividends for Stronger Expression of the Golden Rule Spirit. We have learned the need of this and how to accomplish it. Our Golden Age is ahead, not behind Us.

"And now the United States has fallen to the point where we depend on other countries for oil."

Here, I see the value called "Self-Reliance". Nationally speaking, using Our Own Resources, until such is exhausted and then constructing Better Ways to expedite Our Needs as a People. I think it is wiser to use Our Own Resources first. We have oil reserves that should be used before We exchange something of value to other parts of the world that has what We need. Always maximizing Our Self Reliance Values to keep America Strong. America needs to depend on America, not other nations. Of course, part of this value expression is fulfilled in Fair Trade...exchanging something of equal value for what We need, or want.

"We have sent American jobs out of the Country that Americans need to live and provide for there family."

Well..."We"didn't, but the weak profit monger element of Our Nation has. But We let them. Outlaw Outsourcing. Rebuild American Productivity and Manufacturing. I guess the value here is: Let Not The Wealth and Power cause harm to its foundation. Too much on "top" damages the "bottom".  Let not Our Nation become ruined by this.

"We have let our military go to Afghanistan and Iraq to fight for what happen on 911 which happen to take so many Americans lives. Our troops should have come home along time ago, no questions asked."

Well said indeed! The value here is: the "Golden Rule" itself. Defense is for Home Land and it is very wrong to use "defense" as an excuse to impose Our Culture on Other Cultures...especially in the name of profit. Bring Our Military Forces Home! ALL of them! A quick punitive action might be acceptable from time to time...if We The People ok it.

"People are so mad with the two party system and you can't count on the Tea Party because they are nothing more than a bunch of Republicans trying to pull the wool over  the American people's eyes. America needs to stand up and stop all this false hope and work to make this Country great again."

I think the value here is, again, the Work Ethic...well and wisely applied. Guided by Our Best Moralities?

Good Morning Mark. I'm glad you started this group, because I believe that much work needs to be done about the clarification of "American Values".

For example, what do We mean when We say "Work" or "Earning"?

Should these basic values be augmented and balanced by any other values?
