Global American VALUES - & the 21st Century Economy We're in

What are the Global American Values?

They are American values -- applied globally.

America is about EQUALITY.  All are treated equally regardless of color, sex or religion.

"All men and women are created equal" is written into our Constitution.  It is our keystone principle.

America is about FAIRNESS and JUSTICE -- even for the smallest of its citizens.  We know that justice is hard to find in too many countries.  The United States was always the gold standard for having the best system that built a prosperous economy because even the little guy had a chance to grow and get relief in a court.

But its getting harder for the little guy in the U.S.

The U.S. Supreme Court has made billion-dollar corporations people for political donations.

Congress reps --all of whom have government paid health insurance-- will continue to pay themselves $172,000 year while they deny that same protection to ordinary Americans. These reps, almost 100% of them Republicans who are demanding it, WILL BE PAID while denying veterans and children food stamps and not paying seniors social security benefits.

At the same time these same Congress reps voted billions in subsidies for the top 1%. How is it "Christian" to deny food and health assistance to our poorest citizens?  Other developed countries actually care for their citizens.

If there is neither fairness nor justice for the average citizen, America will lose its gold standard status. I saw how our justice system worked as an attorney representing ordinary Americans with claims against giant corporations. And how it didn't work.

It's part of the story in "Better Times Ahead April Fool"
