  • It's so abstract, and it can mean a lot of things. "Family values" is SO subjective, and it means something different to everyone.

  • I think 'true family values' are subjective but we do tend to be more concerned with material things these days.


    Saying people are only for gay rights just because they think it's cool is beyond ignorant. I'm for equal rights for everyone because it's right not because it's cool.

  • Commercialization and consumerism

  • I think that it's kind of true. Some Americans have a warped view of what a typical American family "should" look like & what it is that makes a family happy. Some are constantly looking at that green grass on the other side, instead of the beauty right in front of them.

  • Pretty broad statement and fairly broad brush to paint all Americans with.

  • IMO~ SOME Americans have gotten away caring for their families, their responsibilities, and obligations and have focused on what OTHERS should do for them.. The result of a growing trend of entitlement...
