One positive virtue is charity. Americans have a reputation for being materialistic. The reality, I am happy to write is that Americans are the most charitable people in the world. According to Marketwatch, “Giving USA ‘s annual report on charitable donations….Americans gave an estimated $358 billion to charity last year, up an inflation-adjusted 5.4% from 2013. This is the highest total, even adjusting for inflation in the reports 60 year history.” The article also says that 2/3 of Americans give to charity and America wa the only country to be in the top ten ranking across all criteria. Clearly we are doing something right.

Another virtue is truthfulness. Aristotle tell us that, with truthfulness as a mean, “if it be on the side of exaggeration, Braggadocia, and him who has it a Braggodocio.”(Mosser 2014). Donald Trump epitomizes braggadocio as no one could possibly be as amazing at everything as he claims. He has his name on everything he possibly can. He even brags about how humble he is.
