Our Declaration of Independence reads that all men are created equal. What does that mean?
Does it mean we are all created equal, that we deserve equal income regardless of our abilities and desires?
We are also guaranteed , life ,liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Are we all going to get a life?Not according to the pro-abortion people. They are trying to limit that right.
How about liberty? In this day and age, our liberties are disappearing daily as the government infringes on more and more on them.
How about happiness? According to the Declaration of Independence,we aren’t guaranteed happiness, just the pursuit of it. Whether or not we are happy depends totally on us. That is our choice.
We are not guaranteed equal income, our income is determined by not only our desire, but our abilities as well. There is not and should not be a guaranteed income, to do so would remove all initiative for people to do their best.
We all have instances and times where life throws us some pretty mean curve balls, and at times it is hard to be happy. But, those times never last, and when they finally do come to an end and we have learned the lessons those events taught us, we should be happy for the learning opportunity those opportunities gave us.
The path to equality is a rocky road, and in America, we all start out equal, according to our abilities and desires. Some do have more challenges than others, but many times those with the most challenges achieve the most in life, not just from a financial stand point, but a spiritual one as well.
That’s what it is all about, each and everyone of us has that opportunity to excel, and so far America has given each and everyone of us a chance and a choice.
In the final analysis, equality for all should mean that each and every one of us is elevated to the highest level we can achieve. It doesn’t mean , as some in government think , that we should all be equal determined by the lowest common denominator. The role of government is to provide us with an opportunity to grow and excel, not punish the successful and reduce everyone to serfs and slaves.
