    Do you believe that all men are created equal? I'd like your POV. I have asked this on other sites several times, and actually was surprised at the different answers. Curious to see now what is said.

    Men = person...so you know.

    Of course. Only a conservative would -- and do -- think otherwise

    Some people are really big.

    Some people are really small.

    Some people are really strong.

    Some people are really weak.

    Some people are really smart.

    Some people are really stupid.

    Some people are really brave.

    Some people are really cowardly.

    Some people are lily white.

    Some people are black as coal.

    And all people are some kind of mixture of all of these or somewhere in between.

    But when all is said and done, Samuel Colt made all people who are brave enough to pick up a gun and use it to be equal to anyone else who will. These are called sheepdogs and wolves.

    The ones who will not are called sheeple.

    Women are superior in the creativity stakes. Men superior in brawn. Both equal in essence.

    100%. Natural Rights as ordained by God and defended by the best of us. What a person does with their talents and abilities is not equal, but everyone is born equal and must be viewed as such in the eyes of the law and greater community. It is what humankind should try to ascend to.

    As far as I am concerned, you need all who are in positions of authority to embrace and encourage this most sacred of ideals. It is what allows a nation to aspire to greatness and human accomplishment along with that unstated respect for the sanctity and dignity of each other as equals from the same Creator.

    Possibly my most favourite sentence in written human history (outside of the bible):

    "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."

    Still sounds so perfect after the 1000th reading. Almost brings a tear to your eye. :salute:
