Do you believe that equality is possible through amendments or do you think it's not possible. My stance is that I believe in equality through amendments is possible. Equality is possible because most amendments talk about what you can do in the US without punishment and most are about freedom. The side I am taking is that it is possible for individuals to achieve equality based on the amendments and the other side believes that quality is not possible through the amendments. Based on the Constitution, it is possible for individuals in society to achieve equality because the amendments have rights that give people the same rights that other people may have.
