PRIMARY SOURCE 1 President Ronald Reagan Defends American Morality (March 8, 1983) President Ronald Reagan portrayed America as the embodiment of morality. He attributed American morality to traditional values he associated with Christianity. Reagan believed his views represented 100 percent Americanism and that those who differed were either deluded or suspect. Millions of Americans agreed with him and voted for him. Reagan drew upon his ideas of American morality in his speech here to the annual convention of the National Association of American Evangelicals in Orlando, Florida, in 1983. The speech illustrates Reagan’s concept of history as a struggle between good and evil and his certainty that America was on the side of good.
