We must be ever vigilant to not only defend, but advance, with God’s help, the timeless values that made America good and therefore great.
The second quality of exceptionalism is freedom which is constantly under pressure. Skeptics argue that there is not be enough virtue to sustain freedom in America. In essence, they believe virtue must be forced upon us by government intervention in the form of socialism. But, forced virtue is not real virtue. The more genuinely virtuous we are, that is being virtuous on our own initiative, the less laws are needed and the more freedom we get.
Thankfully, the three vital components; virtue, freedom and prosperity are present in sufficient quantity today to produce an exceptional America. But, what about the future? The answer is not easy but simple: we must be ever vigilant to not only defend, but advance, with God’s help, the timeless values that made America good and therefore great. It is why we, here at American Values Investments, are focused on providing concerned Americans opportunities to invest in companies that best reflect the values make freedom, prosperity and ultimately American exceptionalism, possible.
Of course investments in the stock market involve risk and past performance is no assurance of future results. More disclosure information is available in our ADV part 2, which is available upon request.
