When this was written, there was still slavery.
And a couple hundred years later our DNA shows that blacks with a direct lineage back to Africa are 100% human, while everyone else on the planet is 96% human and 4% Neanderthal. Ironic huh?
Wait...is that real, or was that a future theoretical irony? If true, not being a full Homo Sapien (human), I hereby declare myself free from the laws of man (though knowing I could be slaughtered by a human and they would just have to pay a small "property replacement" fine is disconcerting, to say the least!

The phrase "All men are created Equal" only has merit in a very specific context.
We can clearly see that some people posses greater skills or attributes than is common, and some people have deficiencies in various areas.
Equality, by definition, does not apply to general human life, endeavours, capabilities, skills, or attributes....
Equality only applies to one single specific area.....
And that Area, is the Law.
So, the phrase "All men are created equal" is incomplete..... and should actually be:
"All men are equal in the eyes of the law"
Because not only is this the single specific context that makes this statement ethical, but it's also the only context that makes it true.

The meaning "all men are created equal" must be considered in context. The constitution doesn't make mention of IQ, social status, race, religion, sexual preference or any other superficial attribute. All men are created equal in that they all possess the god given rights as defined in the Bill of Rights.

First, it is insulting you should call up Animal Farm in relation to the Founding Fathers. Animal Farm in fact was more about the Totalitarian NWO, which is the antithesis to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. The evil ones have been trying to bring in the Totalitarian Communist One World Govt for over a hundred years now, in fact since Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto. They just change the names to fool people. Today, the new term is "Sustainable Development" from UN Agenda 21. It sounds so much happier than "Communism" or "The Communist Manifesto".
The term "All men are created equal" was indeed a statement which needed to be upheld, and it was with the succeeding "Emancipation Proclamation".
You see, it is the evil ones, the Nephilim, the Fallen Angels who enslave mankind in all ways possible. This is by no means a sign that there was or is something inherently wrong with the Constitution, as Progressives so love to suggest.
It was the Progressive Party which was the KKK, which wanted to keep slavery, which now wants us all enslaved to the Totalitarian regimes of Communism, Socialism, Globalism, and now Communitarianism of Agenda 21. Capitalism is reserved for the right wing as usual, but is always used and abused by the Left in it's desire to redistribute the wealth of our nation.
Now the Progressive Party wants to beat up the Republicans and say that it is the conservatives who are the evildoers, the ones who want to keep everyone down, they say it's the conservatives who have a war on women, when it is the Progressives who use women and women's rights as a method to beat up conservatives and to get votes. It is so vile as to make me want to throw up thinking about it. The Progressive Party now wants reparations from people who had nothing to do with slavery. The Progressives hate the Constitution and want it gone so they can push their Totalitarian agenda and take away the guns so the people cannot resist. It was done in other Totalitarian regimes, and in various countries.
It gets tiring hearing the same old rant against the Constitution. There is no point going into why the Founding Fathers did not tackle this sticky problem while they were yet fighting the British King. The Progressives already know this, but they shamelessy use it against our Liberty gained by the Constitution, and they continue to wrap us up more tightly in red tape and bureaucratic regulations to control us more and more.
The Progressive Party has been so divisive and playing the race card so much for the last 4 years. It is a shameful device. It is an illusion that they care about people at all.
All this business of equalizing things between the classes came out of Karl Marx and his Communist Manifesto, and the Socialists who commissioned him to write it. It is the program of Socialism to "equalize" everything in their desire to overthrow the evil Capitalist Bourgeoisie and give the Proletariat dominance in their Dictatorship of the Proletariat. All the social engineering and creating "social and economic equity" is geared toward the purpose of redistribution of income and tearing down the bourgeoisie merchants...in essence...anti Capitalist.
Agend 21 is riddled with such concepts but they wrap it all up in nice terms like "sustainable development", "Smart Growth", "Diversity", "Green", and "Consensus".
Sounds lovely and wonderful to take care of earth doesn't it? But the means to do it is to restrict every aspect of our lives.
In the end, what was once slavery of a segment of society will morph into the slavery of us all to the Sustainable Development designed to restrict what we eat, how we live, where we live, what we can do on our property, the way we use our land, water rights. Everything will be controlled by the Elite.
OP, If you want to face down evil, you are looking at the wrong face.
I am convinced that the statement the Founding Fathers made that "all men are created equal" was never meant to be used as a method to redistribute income, but as a apringboard from which to resist the tyranny of a King or a ruling power. This is also why we have the 2nd Amendment. The Progressives have shamelessly turned it into a war on Capitalism and free enterprise.edit on 25-12-2012 by ThirdEyeofHorus because: (no reason given)

Women and men are not equal; Period IMO.
Women are much better than men at certain things as are men better at others. Is one totally superior to the other...in certain things yes...
Yes there are women more like a man than many men and conversely some men more like women.
If you take a good man and a good woman who join their lives together you end up with a great team for life's challenges.
Gender is not what I am talking about as much as psyc or the way some are wired. Many gay couples live long happy productive lives together. As long as others leave them alone.
