  • I do! There is such a double standard that applies to both and it shouldn't.

  • Some do, some don't. Not good to generalize an entire country of 300+M people.

  • People value different things.....this country is going down the pooper to be honest. Work ethic has suffered. People are too busy to care for those around them.

  • Most of us still do. Many of our elected officials are not in that group, sadly.

  • I think all Americans care about character and values--but I think they disagree on what they should be. And I also think people have some weird and skewed sense that today is somehow "worse"...any student of history will tell you that today is just the same as 10, 100 and 1000 years ago in terms of what people idealize is not what they embody.

  • I can't speak for everyone, but I happen to think both are very important. However, I understand that there are many different definitions of the two terms and each person will identify differently with them. What one person sees as basic human decency, others see as over the top conservatism, and so on...
