Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I Have a Dream”
delivered 28 August 1963,
at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C.
When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Are we there yet? Not even close. I’d argue we are actually further away. Taxes enslave everyone now!
