"The United States Government has taken steps to make sure that the constitution of the United States applies to all individuals."
-Robert F. Kennedy
I strongly admire Bobby Kennedy and think it was a shame he was never president and it was tragic that he was assassinated just like his brother. While the U.S. government hasn't been perfect at this since 1789 (and honestly had a bad record of it until the 1960's), the running theme was the U.S. Constitution should apply to all persons with no favoritism. There are few folks out there who honestly think that the freedom of religion only applies to Christians. Or that the 14th amendment doesn't apply to children of Mexican and other Hispanic immigrants born in the United States which it certainly does.
