Which is more specific and applicable: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal" serving as a basis for the legalization of gay marriage or the fourth amendment preventing the NSA from spying on Americans.

How about we're all created equal and don't spy on ANY of us?

The 4th amendment is from an instrument of government. The quote is from the Declaration, which no legal validity as an instrument of our government.

The Founding Fathers had NO concept of Internet privacy and spying. However they had firsthand experience with individuals being singled out based on their traits, beliefs, and behaviors.

Do you dislike homosexuals or are you just tired of everyone arguing about them?

All people are created equal, but all behaviors are not. It's more applicable to go with the 4th on this one.

Also, the 4th amendment is part of the constitution and is law. The Declaration of Independence is not law.

While I disagree with your overall statement, it is accurate that the declaration isn't law.
