Top 14 American Values

Torture is not, nor has it been, one of America's top values. A group of political scientists analyzing diaries, speeches, letters, pamphlets,etc. from the 1770-80's, found 100 American Values. The top 14 American values they found have remained constaint (though in different orders) over the past 235 years.

In no specific order, the top 14 values are:
Freedom of Speech
Freedom of Religion
The Right to Private Property
The Right to Privacy
Fair Play
Individual Initiative
Concern for the Underdog
Financial Security
Loyalty to Country
Rule y Law
Order in Society
