Question/Topic: American's Creed 
Answer/Pointer: 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." See card in Problem Box for further information and background. See: So proudly we hail, by William R. Furlong (1981) R 929.92 Fur Also World Book Encyclopedia, Vol. A.
