The term,"all men are created equal" needs an historical context.

That context is simply that there would be no recognized nobility, that by virtue of a noble British birth, such a person would have a privileged place in society above other men. The scribes of the constitution were rebeling against a British nobility that sought to recreate the fiefdoms of Europe and their related hierarchy, where the nobility were under a mandate of heaven and noblesse oblige. The founders of our nation rejected that.

So Obama Rama decides that all men are born equal, in substitution of the true historical context. The fact is that such a dedicated , wrongful reinterpretation from one involving social privilege , to a racial parameter, is not only false, but leads our nation into questions of race which the founders never intended. Race simply is an issue om which our founders were silent, but we know that their view was a powerfully fraternal one. Therefore Obama makes the mistake of defining himself as a noble of the racial minority. For this he should be put upon the rack of his own inept interpretation, and laughed out of the courts of the free. Sorry Obama, you and your liberal running dogs are not nobility, and here in this nation of free men, nobility of any sort is not recognized!

Not only is this disingenuous, it is simply self serving, and devoid of the history to which we must adhere as intelligent, sentient beings, dedicated to freedom.

You are exactly right, the Declaration was a ringing rejection of Old World feudalism and classes based on birth.

But did it work? Think of the disproportionate political influence of the Adams, Roosevelt, Kennedy and now Bush families. We seem to have regrown a hereditary ruling class.

For my two cents, that's because we have allowed government to do 'way too much ruling! This sort of thing attracts a decidedly inferior sort to public service.
