Andrew Sullivan is practically saying that the beliefs and morals that America was founded on are the correct morals of the world, freedom. Andrew used the basic foundation that America was founded on, to set a mentality that people can strive in. By pointing out the pros, and the cons, it is apparent an all powerful goverment must be abliterated. I think the most moving part of that entire “I Believe” is the fact that America is not upholding its previous beliefs. No he didnt discuss any challenging of his belief, but i garrentie if any un-educated america die hards heard his opinion, theyd flip out in defence for america.
