The American Creed: 'We Hold These Truths...'

"The great British intellectual G. K. Chesterton wrote that 'America is the only nation in the world that is founded on [a] creed.'

Think about that for a moment. Other nations were founded on the basis of race, or by the power of kings or emperors who accumulated lands and the peasants who inhabited those lands.

But America was—and is to this day—different. It was founded on a shared belief. Or, as Chesterton said, on a creed."
