“All Men Are Created Equal”

In 1776. Our founders declared: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Regardless of modern “Originalist” interpretation of intent, our founding documents hold that these rights apply to ALL.

Four score and seven years later, Lincoln said “our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”

Today, our Constitution defines legal mandates affirming and clarifying these rights of all Americans.

“All” means everything or everyone.

So today, what part of “ALL” don’t we understand?
