You as a citizen

Insist on Fairness

The Declaration of Independence establishes a basic equality for all Americans. As citizens, we have a fundamental right to expect and demand that we be treated fairly under all American laws. In a sense, much of what is wrong about America can be defined by identifying the ways in which America has strayed from its commitment to fairness. As citizens, we need to work hard to understand fairness and fight for it.

“I’m very much a Christian in ideals and ethics, especially in terms of belief in fairness, a deep set obligation to others, and the virtues of charity, tolerance and generosity that we associate with traditional Christian teaching.”
E.O. Wilson

“Obama is a leveler. He has come to narrow the divide between rich and poor. For him the ultimate social value is fairness. Imposing it upon the American social order is his mission.”
Charles Krauthammer
