I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the people, by the people, for the people;
whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed;
a democracy in a republic;
a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable;
established upon these principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.”
— William Tyler Page, The American's Creed
of the United States of America,
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one Nation under God,
with liberty and justice for all.
