“Freedom of religion. I was in France not long ago — everything was oriented to the Catholic religion, even though there’s a growing Muslim population. There was very little acceptance of religious diversity. It’s much better here, in that regard.”
“Freedom of the press, because of the different perspectives that you get in the media. Sometimes the views are polar opposites. But you always get a lot of different ideas. Then, you have the freedom to form your own opinions. Nobody foists an agenda on you.”
“Freedom to question the actions of your government. And to whistle-blow when you see wrongdoing. You can hold the government more accountable here than elsewhere. I was living in Central and South America recently: In a lot of places, the government is very corrupt.”
“The freedom to pursue the American dream. In America, you have the opportunity to get a solid education, to work hard and to succeed in life. That’s what I value most about this country.”
