Hrmmmm, according to the Bill of Rights again: "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."

Notice it says "All men", not just some. When we lose sight of the
"self-evident" truths, we have lost it all... and have given it away
with both hands.
