Let's Protect America! True Equality NOW!
We, the undersigned, want honesty in the interpretation of our Constitution and equal rights for human beings.
The 28th Amendment: Honesty In Equality
Section 1: All enumerated natural rights for citizens shall apply equally to all human citizens.
Section 2: Non-sentient entities shall not be given equal rights to human beings.
Why is this important?
Subject: Let's Have Honesty In Our Equality, America!
The 14th Amendment doesn't actually grant Equal Protection to all Americans, the way that most of us have been raised to believe. There is a gradient of justice.
In fact, Justice Anton Scalia went so far as to remind us in an interview with California Lawyer that issues of gender discrimination that are brought before the Supreme Court are given intermediate scrutiny while issues of race are given strict scrutiny, even though they're both immutable traits.

EQUAL PROTECTION SHOULD MEAN EQUAL WHEN IT COMES TO PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW.
Right now, the Supreme Court is also more willing to promote the rights of corporations above its citizens, when it is their job to interpret the Constitution and adjudicate cases based upon it - not to create new law; that is the legislature's job.
In one amendment, we can remind our Supreme Court that corporations are not equal to people, but are made of people, and are not deserving of natural rights, and welcome traditionalist justices into the 21st century with a the meaning of equality that every American understands as true.
