Who or what makes you equal? Is it some outside indiviudal? If so, why do you let someone else define your equality? Can you quantify that equality? Do you let a law define your equality? Then you've let someone else define it for you.
Most people are content to let someone else tell them of their equality. The government is attempting to define equality in such a way that 1/6 of our nations economy will be ran by the government. 1/6th, which means the other 5/6th of our economy is not equal to that 1/6th. Equality can come from each individual making their own choice. Now, isn't that much more equitable?
