Do you believe that all humans are created equal?

The American "Declaration of Independence" asserted that all men [humans] are created equal. Do you believe that that assertion is true? Lately it would seem that some people's voices and votes receive greater weight than the voices and the votes of others in America. Sometimes that seems due to an individual's celebrity, or experience, wealth, or education, business success, or political standing. Where does that equality stop? Are we all "equal before the law"? Are the votes of each man and each woman to be treated equally? If not, who decides, and should they be allowed to?

    what strange PC world we walk down when we begin to believe that we are not given special gifts that should be amplified by hard work. Too bad but that guy over there that just wants a hand out is not equal to the worker.

    Sorry, but I think your conception of equal negates its existence as a useful definitive term. Equal also doesn't find its origin in religion, and the normal use of the word equal is in math.

    Your connotation of equal is ambiguous and vague.
