I wish the American people had the will to impeach the conservative members of the Supreme Court.

@Thomas,
This was in the Declaration of Independence:

Quote:
...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


Equality is implicit.

The American Revolution occurred before the French Revolution. The French king Louis XVI , the one who married the Austrian Princess Marie Antoinette, helped finance the American Revolution so there would not be American independence without French help. In the meantime, the finances in France was very bad and thus was born the French Revolution.

@talk72000,
How did you manage to Bold the word created without realizing it was there?

@OCCOM BILL,
[]...Here...[]put the text in between the first and the second block[]. The first block should have 'b' and the second block '/b'. Press the B in the BBCode Editor and the two blocks appear and insert your text between them.

That's not what Bill meant. He meant: Although all men (and women) are equal in the way they were created, they are not equal in what they make of themselves.

@Thomas,
You are splitting hairs. Created equally also implies equality.

There is a night and day like difference between created equally and striving for equality for all, as Thomas originally pointed out. Ask any former Soviet.

@OCCOM BILL,
All you have to do is cut the second block and paste it where you want. I realized you knew how to bold so I have no idea as to your purpose except in the negative sense.

@OCCOM BILL,
These words were meant in a straight forward manner as there was no Soviet Union. It is the Soviets who twisted meanings.

@OCCOM BILL,
The use of 'created' was to offset the Royal claim of Divine Right To Rule. This Rule was exploited and the Declaration was to void this claim. It implies equality. If he meant inequality there is no reason for the Revolution as George III as monarch automatically meant inequality.

@talk72000,
I feel like I'm piling on in a fight with an armless man, but...

"All men are created equally" in no way implies that all men will have equal life experiences and rewards.

Equality of opportunity and equality of result are two very different things.

What actually makes the conservatives run into a catch-22 situation is with their win in November, they may want to cut the deficit, but they will not cut defense.

Where else are they going to cut? Social security and Medicare? That'll certainly make them a one-term cinderella.

@Finn dAbuzz,
It was meant as a legal term and political argument not a court room about back end details of but a front end entitlement. Do you always look at the ass first?

perhaps a viewing of "Lonely are the Brave" would be in order. besides the fight with a one-armed man, it's a wonderful film. And, yes, Finn I do recognize and armless and one-armed are not the same thing.
