4. They made a slight modification of an ideal.

The Declaration states, “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….”

becomes:::

(not teachable) All Americans are not created equal and are not endowed by their Creator with certain
unalienable rights, including, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; or

"all Men" becomes "All Americans".

That pesky Constitution just gets in their way sometimes.

(All Men meaning all persons of course)
