  •  Sure we do. 'All men are created equal and endowed (0+ / 0-)

    by their creator with inalienable rights.'

    Its just that certain political scum have tried hard to appropriate and distort the real creed of American: the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.

    The only thing new citizens must swear to is to support and defend the Constitution.  You do that you're an equal citizen, not matter race, color, nationality, religion, gender or what have you.

    That said tho, the Constitution itself showed how deeply flawed the nation was at birth, i.e., '3/5ths'.  But that should be an eternal call to action, not cause for despair.
