Pre-Amble “Misconceptions” Rant

The Pre-Amble, although NOT legally binding in any legal sense, says “We The People”, this is commonly misconstrued to mean everyone in the United States, but who we “we the people” when this was written, “white PROPERTY owning men”..who are “we the people now “all people in the United States, in all of our diversity”….altho, there are still a few of us..not treated equally..for example, the 14th Amendment, which was passed in 1868, calls for the Equal Protection of the law, were women equally protected then? Nope, not until 1920 did women get Suffrage. MY point is that we may not have it yet, but one day hopefully #Gay people in the #UnitedStates will have equal treatment under the law, from Adoptions, to Marriages, to JOB security, will one day to have equal protection under the law….we have to fight though, it will not be handed to us…

  1. You’re right Jeff. But sadly, you’re not the only group of people who aren’t reaping the benefits of the constitution. Many minorities still suffer because the will, passion and urgency to see change isn’t present in American society today as it was in the past.

    Good post. Keep up the good work man.

    • Yea, which is the best thing about the Constitution, it was built to change with the times. I am impatient though I will admit, but I have hope that the movement will succeed..
