I was reading Colin Powell’s endorsement of Senator Obama and what it truly means. I put in a comment but the site wouldn’t accept it as I wasn’t registered. There goes some wasted time and an opportunity to reach out for more – a inane act of requiring registering. Anyway, here is what I wanted to post.
“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.”
Powell is right and everyone who believes what true America is, is right that it doesn’t matter what religion you follow in America. It is a shame some Senators dropped the whisper; and I am not surprised. While the Founding Fathers of America had a goal of ‘All Men are created equal’, it took about 100 years to see some form of recognition by the constitution in granting equal rights to African Americans; it took even more time, to say separation is not the same as equality. Some hard-core, not so connected to the current America, conservatives are deep routed in believing some are superior to others either because of color of skin, race, immigrant status or beliefs. The day America can truly treat all people fairly and justly will be the day it will become the truly Greatest nation on Earth, even the closest to the Nation of God 🙂
