        Equality of what or in other words how are you defining equality? I think every adult should be free so that would be equality of freedom? Equality of income no, equality of marks at school no but if you own a house and I owned a house should we no have the same property rights? Equality of property rights I say yes.

        This has everything to do with Trade and Prosperity Mr. Hardgrave.

        I vote Freedom. Freedom is the only concept that makes us masters of our own destiny. Equality can only come from an "ideal" Socialist/Communist system that has always failed and will fail. Why? Because there never will be an equality of: Effort, knowledge, motivation and the free thought of good ideas and the ability to act on them. Those inequalities will always reward or advance some and leave others behind.
