As we all know,if we'd like to choose one word to describe the United States,it must be Freedom.And if we wanna delete 3 letters of it,then,out comes the word Free.It came fromThe Social Contract
,one of the most important works of Jean Jacques Rousseau,the Great French Enlightenment Thinker.In that work, Rousseau declared that Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.It was developed again inthe Declaration of Independence
,as the sentence We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.And that is exactly what leaded to the foundation of the new country.
We often say that the USA might have the most perfect political system all over the world.Its government was built according to Checks and Balance,in which law the President,the Congress and the Supreme Court are independent from each other.But in the old world of Kings and Knights,this is absolutely rebellious.In order to win their rights,the American have experienced a cruel war,which was calledWar of Independence
.Here's a movie clip about it,which title wasThe Patriot
[Playing movie,wait 3 minutes...]
OK,ladies and gentlemen.Finally,you know,they won their freedom and democracy,but as for us,it is still in the fog.I know not what course you may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!If we have the right to make a choice,why not to be a patriot? That's the end of my speech,thank you everyone.
