You're confusing the Constitution with the Declaration of Independence. It's the latter which mentions the "pursuit of happiness". Your basic point is valid, though. A lot of mileage has been gotten out of the phrase "due process" (14th Admendment), for instance. ObConlang: Gladilatian for "pursuit of happiness" is "mzansawaot snrelaot". mza - directed to nsawa - happy ot - (abstractor) snrela - pursuing =========================================================================== Dennis Paul Himes <> Gladilatian page: Disclaimer: "True, I talk of dreams; which are the children of an idle brain, begot of nothing but vain fantasy; which is as thin of substance as the air." - Romeo & Juliet, Act I Scene iv Verse 96-99
