Welcome Equals!

JULY 4th is Equalization Day.

 

The day Equalization became law deserves its own holiday. This is the most important event in human history. For the first time, we have fulfilled the promise of the Declaration of Independence and assured that, in fact, all people are not only created equal but live in equality.

 

Therefore, it is fitting that July 4th should be remembered not for so-called Independence from another country, only to be replaced by oppression from a new elite, but instead for the true Equalization of all citizens.

 

Tell us how you celebrate by writing in the guestbook.

Join the movement.

While it's important to live in equality, we all need to be vigilent to protect the rights we've obtained. As Equalization happens only once every 50 years, we have to keep the flame alive. Try to travel as often as possible to Equalization events. The photo gallery features several pictures from events across the Nation and around the world.


Go ahead and see for yourself!
