Americans seem to have become accustomed to the casual use of the “F” word, with celebrities tracking, proudly, the number of times they “drop the “f” bomb” in public. The frequent use of the “f” word has coarsened our public discourse. But, many of our most emblematic American values, the very characteristics that shape our national character and contribute to American exceptionalism, have been given a bad rep by liberals because they, too, are “F” words.

Freedom from an overly intrusive government that thinks that only government knows what is best for Americans. Democrats prefer to support over-expansive government intrusiveness in the lives of all Americans, and over-regulation of our industries that is stifling American competitiveness.

Faith, the belief that something exists that is greater than we. The acknowledgement that, regardless of the religious diversity that currently exists in our country, we were founded as an essentially Judeo-Christian society, so much so, that we have no qualms about putting “In God we Trust” on our nation’s money is a concept which Democrats seem to abhor and Republicans embrace..

Free Enterprise and the belief in a capitalist society, in which a man can change his stars through innovation, hard work and perseverance. Democrats seek to change that emphasis and shift the country’s job creation power base from one of individual initiative to one of government granted entitlement.

Family and the importance of the family unit as a stabilizing and creative force in our society is a system which has served this country well for over 200 years, but which, now, Democrats have put under attack. A growing dependency on government support, the sad increase in the number of divorces and the dramatic increase in the number of children born to single mothers has destroyed the primacy of the traditional family at great expense to the nation.
