The American's Creed (1917)

Bei Adolf Rock (Hrsg.), Dokumente der amerikanischen Demokratie, Wiesbaden 1947, S. 168-169, findet sich eine gedruckte Fassung sowie eine deutsche Übersetzung.

"I believe in the United States of America as a Goverument 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 those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American pairiots 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 its enemies."
William Tyler Page.
