The American's Creed
I believe in the United States of America as a
government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers are
derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a Republic; a sovereign nation of
many sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those
principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots
sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to
love it, to support its constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend
it against all enemies.
William Tyler Page
