American Values--what are yours?

What are American Values? We hear a great deal about family values, traditional values, Judeo-Christian values, even liberal values. But we hear hear these from the megaphones of pundits and the ubiquity of mass mailings.

I don't think any of those definitions are (at the very least by themselves) American Values. We're about to enter a primary season where 'values' of one stripe or another will likely start to surface again as candidates on both sides of the isle attempt to rouse their faithful.

Before the rhetoric flies and the TV commercials start, I think it would be good to hear about what you all think are American Values.

Post a comment, or send me an email. I think a collection of views on American values, and an ensuing discussion, might be a richer experience than what we can get from O'Reilly or the McLaughlin group.

Hope to hear from you.
