One of the great things about the United States is the understanding that we’re all created equal. What some people do with their equality is questionable at best, but we all start out the same way. Any of us can grow up to be anything. The potential is there. We can grow up poor and end up a billionaire. It’s happened, after all.
Yet even into adulthood, we’re still considered equal before the law and the government, at least in theory. We’re supposed to all have an equal say in who we elect.
However, the primary process is long and drawn out. It’s also expensive.
