umair haque

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” This second sentence of the Declaration of Independence was the justification for our new nation to break with England, and the foundation of the Constitution that came 11 years later. 
Umair Hague’s brief essay brings clarity to the Constitution’s role in codifying these values for a new nation.

Critical to human life are: clean air, potable water, adequate nutrition and healthcare.
