“America is an exceptional nation—that is, one like no other, not just now but in history—because it is dedicated to the universal principle of human liberty… This is grounded in the truth that all men—not just Americans—are created equal and endowed with inalienable rights by their Creator. As a British admirer of America, G.K. Chesterton, once put it:

‘America is the only nation in the world that is founded on a creed.’

We are, in other words, not a nation based on ethnicity, but on beliefs, and not coincidentally, that is why we attract people of all ethnicities and they become proud Americans.”
