The Americans Creed

The Americans Creed

In 1917, William  Tyler Page of Maryland won a nationwide contest for "the best summary of American political faith." The U.S. House of Representatives accepted the statement as the American's Creed on April 3, 1918.  Its two paragraphs remind us that responsibilities are the source of rights.  It deserves to be read and recited.  Today very few people have even heard of it. 

     I believe in the United States of Amercas 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 sovereigh 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 supports its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.
