The five founding ideals of America are equality, rights, liberty, opportunity and democracy. Equality is important because there is no prejudice in society and we are all equal, ensuring no-one is more or less important because as humans, we are all the same despite our skin-tones and religions. Rights give us various privelidges so we can express our opinions, important so people can do what they want , including protest something or have a petition. Liberty gives us freedom to live our life, make our own choices, behave how we want, something that pleases people. Opportunity gives us the chance to pursue our dreams, and do what we want. Democracy, the last ideal, is important because it ensures everyone is happy with the laws being passes and everyone gets a say in how they are being ruled. Together, these ideals are important because they are the principles that America, as a country is trying to acheive.
