1. Liberty -- the value of individuals to have agency (control over their own actions).
2. Egalitarianism -- It is defined either as a political doctrine that all people should be treated as equals and have the same political, economic, social, and civil rights or as a social philosophy advocating the removal of economic inequalities among people or the decentralisation of power. Some sources define egalitarianism as the point of view that equality reflects the natural state of humanity.
3. Individualism -- the moral stance, political philosophy, ideology, or social outlook that emphasizes "the moral worth of the individual". Individualists promote the exercise of one's goals and desires and so value independence and self-reliance and advocate that interests of the individual should achieve precedence over the state or a social group, while opposing external interference upon one's own interests by society or institutions such as the government.
4. Republicanism -- stresses liberty and "unalienable" rights as central values, makes the people as a whole sovereign, rejects aristocracy and inherited political power, expects citizens to be independent in their performance of civic duties, and vilifies corruption… people have unalienable rights that cannot be voted away by a majority of voters. Alexis de Tocqueville warned about the "tyranny of the majority" in a democracy [such as happened in the bloody French Revolution], and advocates of the rights of minorities have warned that the courts needed to protect those rights by reversing efforts by voters to terminate the rights of an unpopular minority [such as happened with Jim Crow laws in the South after the Civil War which took away the rights of black citizens].
5. Populism -- a political doctrine where one sides with "the people" against "the elites." Americans usually like to side with the “underdog.”
6. Laissez-faire -- an economic environment in which transactions between private parties are free from government restrictions, tariffs, and subsidies, with only enough regulations to protect property rights. The phrase laissez-faire is French and literally means "let [them] do", but it broadly implies "let it be," "let them do as they will," or "leave it alone". Scholars generally believe a laissez-faire state or a completely free market has never existed…. Laissez-faire, a product of the Enlightenment, was "conceived as the way to unleash human potential through the restoration of a natural [economic] system, a system unhindered by the restrictions of government.
It is clear that our nation is rather unusual in human history in the amount of freedoms that are given to the people and in a system that is designed to disperse power to the people while still protecting the individual against “mob politics.” Certainly we have not always lived up to our values that were conceived at the founding of our country, but we have never given up the fight to keep reaching toward those lofty goals, and with God’s blessings, we have gone further than any nation in history probably to live out the values in the Bible which are founded upon the law of love, an expression of the limitless love which Our Father in Heaven has for all of us.
I pray that you will enjoy the full extent of your God-given rights and freedoms this day and that you will remember to give Him thanks from whom all blessings flow.
